Individual assignment

Area (Select 1)

Compensation & Benefits

Other (with prior consent of instructor)

If you do not have experience working with an organization, review current events or local find a local organization to work with.

The strategy will focus on creating an outline to help the organization in the future.  For example, if you received a job with an organization without an interview, how would you create a selection process to replace you?

Work in the selected area should include the following:

A narrative describing the background, major issues, practices, and problems/challenges based on personal knowledge/experiences, observations, and/or interviews. The narrative or “problem statement” should be in essay form.  The problem should not be the focus on the paper.  Once you have established the area of opportunity provide data, research and information to support the value of improving that particular area.  For example, a lot of organizations have functioned well without ever interviewing a single employee, but what value could a good selection process bring to the organization?

You can include a copy of any materials in reference to the program or practice. If there are no reference materials, provide strategies and best practices to provide direction for the organization. Please note that these materials will be kept confidential and will not be shared with others.

With your referenced material you should look for material that provides strategic direction concerning how to address the challenge you have identified in #1 above.

Provide an evaluation of the program or practice in light of your knowledge of the topic gained in the course, research and class discussions. Discuss how this program or practice supports the organization’s strategic objectives. This evaluation should be based on what you would do after the program is put into place.

BBPB2103 Human Resource Management

BBPB2103 Human Resource Management

The purpose of this assignment is to develop learners’ ability to analyze the human resource management practices of employee recruitment and performance evaluation in an organization of their choice. 

Human resource management is a shared function. Even though the Human Resource Department is responsible for employee recruitment and performance evaluation, other departments play a significant role in executing these functions. As such, a better understanding of human resource functions by all departments will ensure effective HR functions and ultimately help the organization to achieve a competitive advantage.


Based on an interview with Human Resource personnel (HR Director, HR Manager, HR Executive, etc.), explain the current practices of employee recruitment and performance evaluation in the organization. Proceed to identify weaknesses of the current practices and suggest solutions to rectify those weaknesses.

Valerie Hughes-D’Aeth, Group HR Director at BBC, argues:

‘We are here in HR as an integral part of the BBC, providing support and services to enable the contributions of our people to be maximized. No matter what the business, for HR to function with integrity and impact, you have to have strong operational foundations in place and an HR team willing to fully commit to the organization and to working together’ (Hughes-D’Aeth, 2019). 

How far do you agree with this assessment of the role of HRM?
