Human Resource Management

Coursework 2 is worth 70% of the module mark
You are required to write a 2,000-word (+/- 10%) essay on the implementation of
contemporary HRM practices for a chosen company operating in Singapore. The chosen
company can be from any country and industry. Your reference list and appendix are not
included in the word limit.
The rationale for this assignment (as opposed to more traditional essay question format) is
to assess your ability to apply the theories and models you have learned in the module to a
real existing company. In your future careers as managers, you will be responsible for
people issues in your team or organization and so, managing human resources is not just
for the HRM department.
Your essay must include and cover topics based on:
1. HR Planning;
2. Recruitment and selection;
3. Learning and development;
4. Gender and diversity at work.
You must address the topics in critical depth. In practice, you will find that HR issues are not
as neatly compartmentalised as textbooks and module outlines make them out to be! You
might also find that you may wish to draw on ideas and references from other related module
topics too, but take care not to try and cover too much or you will lack the required depth of
analysis. You should ask yourself how the knowledge you have learned through the material
can help you in understanding the proposed topics involved. Your work should also include
references to published research on the topics that your chosen company has identified that
goes beyond the materials we have given you to read for lectures and classes.
Learning outcome assessed:
S/N Description Tested

written wholly or in part by a third party and presented as one’s own original work;
d. collusion, that is, submitting work produced collaboratively for individual
assessment, unless this is explicitly permitted and acknowledged;
