Using relevant research/academic literature on HRM that you have read so far, prepare a critical review of one (1) of the following HR activities that warrants remedial action in the organisation you are working for (or have worked for in the past):

  • staff selection 
  • occupational health and safety
  • career management
  • diversity management

With the support of research/academic literature, you are required to:

  • summarize an HR issue/problem that you've identified in the activity area;
  • justify why it is important for management to take action to address the issue/problem raised, having regard to its impacts on performance in the organisation (at multiple levels, if this is appropriate);
  • use research/academic literature to analyze and assess possible strategies for managing the issue/problem,taking into consideration constraints that exist in the organization;
  • recommend policies and actions based on this assessment. Justify your recommendation(s); and
  • be persuasive in your arguments. 

There is a clear logic or flow in the structure of these points, and you may like to use this to structure your argument in the essay.

Rationale

This assignment is designed to:

  • assist students in examining and understanding how HR operates in practice as compared to what is found in research/academic literature;
  • familiarise students with the gap which may exist between espoused HR policy and actual HR practice within work organisations;
  • encourage students to develop a critical understanding of the extent to which organisations adhere to espoused HRM policies;
  • encourage students to explore the complicated relationship among top management, line managers, HR managers and employees and its effect on HR policies and practices;
  • encourage students to develop sound analytical skills based on in-depth literature research, learnt theories, case studies and work practices.
