The paper "Managing Cultural Diversity in Australia, Talent Management Strategy in India" is a perfect example of a management annotated bibliography. This paper is focused on temporary and sponsorship migration of skilled workers and reports on a case study that involves motivating factors for such migrations of foreign workers to Australia. The study is pragmatic and employs the temporary business entry program which is a new aspect of the migration policy in Australia. Results provided by the study indicate an affirmative conclusion of the important role played by both non-economic and economic factors in motivating the migration of skilled labour.
The study applies survey technics to answer research questions including: ‘ Which employers attract workers temporarily from overseas, who are the skilled migrants, where do they migrate from and what are the reasons for skilled workers to migrate to Australia? ’ (Khoo et al, 2007, p. 486). Strengths One of the strengths of the article is its methodology which provides a wide range of reliable data from primary sources. The reporting of methodology and analysis of data in the study was well documented in tables illustrating the categorised information and a wide range of samples used.
Responses are acquired from the migrant's confidentiality is assured. Findings point out factors that directly attract foreign skilled labour to Australia. The findings indicate pragmatic support for international theories of migration. This is the second strength of the article, well-illustrated findings based on acquired data. Competence of the skilled labour and encourage sponsorship by employers and rotation of workers in regional offices in different countries also contribute to the migration. Weakness The article's weakness is reflected in inadequate information on the lifestyle factor in Australia as a contributing aspect to the migration of skilled labour to Australia.
The article's theoretical arguments on temporary migration of skilled workers from other countries that are developed are insufficiently addressed. Also, the data used relied mostly on Australia by the Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs(DIMIA) as part of a key project f research on temporary migration of skilled labour. The article surveys are dated back in 2003 and 2004 with the most recent conducted between 2003 November and May 2004 and the first carried out in mid-2003.
The article argues that the sample used in the recent survey involved skilled migrants who were temporary and that Australia is increasingly attracting more skilled labour globally (Khoo et al, 2007, p. 494).
