You have recently started a new role as a senior manager in a small but rapidly growing organization. The managing director is not a human resource specialist so she has asked you to oversee the human resource function of the business. She believes that this role may become too large as the business continues to grow. She would like you to investigate human resource management issues further in order to develop a deeper understanding of
o the role and importance of human resource management in achieving organizational effectiveness
o the formulation and implementation of human resource strategies
o contemporary issues affecting strategic human resource management.
You are then required to assess a range of human resource strategies that may be implemented within the organisation.
As the Organisation Continues to grow, the managing director has asked you to prepare a clear and informative guide to help her understand the importance of human resource management and implementation strategies.
Your information guide must cover the following topics:
a) a definition of strategic human resource management
b) an explanation of the importance of human resource management in organizations
c) an analysis of the framework of strategic human resource management.
Your guide should demonstrate an understanding of the formulation and implementation of human resource strategies. You should:
d) analyse the strategic human resource process
e) assess the roles in strategic human resource management
f) analyse the development and implementation of human resource strategies.
The managing director was impressed by your clear and informative guide. She would like to give a presentation to the board of directors on the contemporary issues affecting strategic human resource management.
The presentation must cover the following topic:
o identification and analysis of the contemporary issues affecting strategic humanresource management.
You will need to produce a presentation for her, the accompanying notes for the presentation and have appropriate hand-outs for the board detailing the information covered.
Confident of your understanding of human resource management issues, the managing director has asked you to assess the range of HR strategies that may be implemented within the organization.
Your assessment should be documented in a formal report and must cover.
o an identification of a range of HR strategies for an organization
o an assessment of HR strategies and their application in an organization.
