Human Resource management is often criticized for weighing down an organization in required compliance and regulatory affairs, as well as increased overhead in myriad means. However successful companies capitalize on Human Resource management by connecting it with organizational strategy.
Identify a large company excelling at matching organizational strategy and HR management. Submit a three page (minimum), written assignment analyzing the company for its efforts in marrying HR and strategy. Charts and figures may be included in support of the written content. Remember corporate websites are incredibly helpful to identify information about Human Resource practices, but students will also want to rely on supportive articles and editorial opinion on the organization when and how appropriate.
