The aim of the assignment is to encourage students to combine theoretical and practical aspects ofHRM by referring to organization case study examples when assessing the core theories and themes in the HRM academic literature. In particular, students are expected to engage in criticalanalysis of relevant HRM academic literature, from sources recommended below, in the module outline, at the end of lecture slides, or sources derived from their own wider reading. It is notenough to rely on lecture notes or non-academic internet sources.SELECTONEMULTINATIONAL CASE(with operations in its home country and at least one other foreign host country) with which you are familiar ? one that you can access relevant HRM informationabout(for example, one you have worked for, had an internship in, an organisation familiar to family/friends, or that you have been able to find detailed information about in journal articles,books, newspapers, internet).In completing the assignment, you are expected to address the following five issues:1. Strategy: firstly, briefly summarize the impact of globalization on the multinational organisation?s overall business strategy and then its overall HR strategy.2. HRM practices: secondly, analyse the impact of globalization on the various components of HRM policy and practice in the multinational organization under the four main HR functionscovered in the module: resourcing the organization, human resource development (HRD), employment relations, performance and reward. The list of HR policies and practices that might beassessed under these four areas include: talent management, recruitment and selection, employee engagement, organizational culture, training and development, employee voice andparticipation rights (industrial democracy), pay, reward & performance management (these might be referred to by other labels).3. To what extent is there ?strategic international/global HRM? at your chosen multinational organization? Examine to what extent the various components of HRM are linked to achievingoverall business strategy (vertical integration). Evaluate to what extent the various components of HR practice are consistent and support each other in achieving the overall HR strategy(horizontal integration). Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need) in relation to relevant academic literature on strategic HRM (for example, ?best fit?, ?best practice?, ?resource-based view?).4. Another theme to be Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need)ed in your assignment is how different organizational, sector/industry, country, and international contexts mediate the impact of globalization on HRMpolicies in your multinational case company.5. Provide brief conclusionsabout the impact of globalization on HRM. Then briefly recommend possible improvement in HR management in your chosen multinational organization to tryto address challenges of globalization.Selected recommended readingBeardwell J. and Claydon, T.
