You will complete a written assignment based on this week's reading.
Again, this week you will write another short paper. Our topic this week is Human Resource Planning and Organizational Strategy. The paper should address organizational processes related specifically to human resource planning -- and once again, I would like to see you apply these concepts in the context of your own organization. Your paper should be four to five pages excluding the title page and references.
First, the prompt requires you to discuss the relationship between human resource planning activities and the organization's strategic development and implementation. This means you need to explain how human resource planning (recruiting, hiring, evaluating, supporting, promoting and firing) relates to the strategic direction of the organization as a whole. How do HR managers support organizational goals through people? See my guidance above on Fitz-enz's book for some clues.
Next, describe the eight elements of the staffing process. Then, I suggest that you list the four activities related to human resource planning. Derive these from your textbook.
After that, describe the relationship between the eight elements and the four activities. How are they intertwined?
Explain the relationship between the four activities of human resource planning and the organization's strategic planning, development, and implementation. This means that you need to explain how the four activities and how they affect the organization as a whole. Again, the Fitz-enz book may be helpful to you!
This may seem like a tall order, but if you follow my recommended structure below, you can master this assignment.
