Theenclosed report deals with firm which is meeting the objectives in effectual manner. It helpscompany to connect with the public at large basis (Boyd, 2014). This helps firm to makeeffective its marketing efforts. Organisation may be able to inform customers new products thatare launched by it on social media platforms. This helps company to promote its products ineffectual manner. For conveying message to customers, it is required to communicate with them.For this, communication model is used by company so that it may convey its message with muchease. As such, sales are maximised by organisation as lot of attention of customers are madethrough use of social media.Portfolio One-(1) Discuss Hofstede model and link HR policiesThis model describes the effects on society's cultures on values of the members ineffective manner. It also describes that how its relates to behaviour of individual.Hofstede modelis known to indicate the undertaken values of a workplace and the way they are influence fromthe cultural beliefs of a specific nation. These socio- cultural beliefs are in turn known to impactupon the undertaken policies of HR in an organisation where this present section hasdemonstrated about such similar consideration of a chosen Chinese retail organisation namedWumart (Country comparison China). Hofstede model consists of 6 distinct factors that arerequired to be considered by the HR bodies of Chinese entities and on whose basis, they arerequired to adopt from the best possible measures for their employees. It is therefore onconsidering the foremost element of power distance that has been scored 80 and is known todepict the extent to which member having fewer powers tends to except. The aforesaid rankingthereby specifies such unequal distribution of power in China to be an acceptable consideration.Another is the aspect of individualism which specifies the degree of interdependence in asociety to be maintained among the individuals. Chinese culture has hereby attained a score of 20which states about its highly socialist culture as an added advantage to Wumart where its
employees will be open to work in groups. Masculinity demonstrating a fundamental issue ofencouraging people where China with a score of 66 has proven to have a driven and successoriented culture (Bolman and Deal, 2017). Thus, if Wumart refers to expand into some otherinternational market places such as UK, etc., then they are apparent to easily accept their distinctcultural norms to accordingly adapt it into their organisational policies. Next is the uncertaintyavoidance where China has scored very less in it and thus depicts a flexible approach of Chineseto adjust into an altered environment. Long term orientation is a highly scored element in theChinese culture which clearly reflects a pragmatic culture of Chinese people. Lastly, indulgencebeing a challenging aspect which confronts humanity has scored lowest in terms of having arestrained society. This states that Chinese people are very much concerned about achieving theirstipulated goals and objectives.Portfolio Two-Training and development(1) Use Honey and Mumford's learning style framework to train workersHoney and Mumford's learning style is much helpful to workers for their better trainingand development and as such this learning style provides way for their development. Thislearning style contains four roles of learner that guides employees in accomplishing theirassigned tasks with much ease (Laroche, Habibi and Richard, 2013). The four elements oflearning style are activists, reflectors, theorists and pragmatists. Workers more or less behave inthese manners to learn new things at workplace.Activists-The activists involve fully and without bias in new le raring experiences. They enjoylearning new things with much enthusiasm. They are open-minded, and this tends to make themenergetic and positive about anything new. They tend to act first and consider the consequencesof learning afterwards. Their days are filled with activity. They try to handle problems bybrainstorming. They react for the activities and soon as it is completed, they search for new one.They tend to thrive on the challenge of new experiences.Reflectors-
