The regional HR manager of a multinational conglomerate faces increasing pressure to evacuate management as the crisis intensifies in the politically unstable country. Concurrently, it becomes increasingly clear that individual managers are making evacuation plans independent of central control, making implementation of a prearranged plan very difficult. The decision to evacuate ethnic Chinese managers and family members is made, and the offer of assistance is extended to all employees. Further logistical challenges in the evacuation plan become more problematic by increased pressure felt by the decision-maker due to the deteriorating situation in the country, as well as an increased sense of desperation among managers both in the country and those abroad with families present. Making matters even more difficult for the decision-maker is the loss of communication with his evacuation team, insufficient cash available to the evacuees, mounting costs to the firm, and an inability to clarify exit documentation requirements of evacuation employees and their families. This is a supplement to the A case, 9A99C001.
