SHRM Policy Analysis Report

Length: 2500 words (plus or minus 10% excluding the title page and reference list).


Students are required to choose an organisation with which they are familiar, and then to select two SHRM policies implemented (to be implemented) in that organisation. The policies may include at least three or more of the following aspects: designing and implementing cultural transformation, strategic workforce planning and talent management, strategic development of the workforce, aligning performance management and compensation processes, leveraging effective leadership processes and management competencies, managing diversity, managing stress and improving workplace health and well-being, managing the impact of technology and globalisation, and managing employee voice and employment ethics, or other relevant issues.

The chosen policies should be analysed in relation to their components and applications; and critiqued in relation to their content, accessibility, efficacy, effectiveness, legal compliance, consistency with other policies and with contemporary HRM principles and benchmarks.

Recommendations for the improvement of the policies, and their justification, should be included in the business report.

Relevant references should be provided. Students will demonstrate additional research beyond the course material and the course textbook by using recent peer reviewed academic journal articles published between 2010 and 2021 (minimum of twenty {20}).
