The assessment asked you to take on the role of an external consultant to Hartley Electronics Ltd and to write a report to the chief executive that:1) identifies the main human resource problems facing the company and, more importantly,2) provides a reasoned argument justifying whether the company should adopt a ?best practice?, ?best fit? or resource-based view of the firm model of HR strategy to achieve a long-term solution to these HR problems.Assessment criteriaSpecific assessment criteria include the following.? Your report should demonstrate critical awareness of the three theoretical perspectives outlined above from relevant literature and how the perspectives can be applied to the case study.Further information. In the second part of your answer you should concentrate mainly on one preferred approach out of the three perspectives. However, you should initially justify why you are focusing on your chosen approach in preference to the other possible perspectives and indicate why you think this approach is more applicable to the case than the other two. After identifying what you think are the main HR problems (and why), provide a brief critical review of the potential advantages and disadvantages of each approach in relation to the case, provide a justification for choosing one approach, and then apply the approach to the case study, critically assessing how it may contribute to providing a long-term resolution to the HR problems you identify.In identifying what you consider to be the main HR problems in the first part of the task, it is preferable to Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need) relatively few problems in slightly more depth than to Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need) lots of HR issues superficially.?

Your report should conclude with a recommendation justifying a particular course of action, which should follow logically from your preceding argument.Further information.
