|HRM331: Talent Management|
Overview of GBA
In this GBA, you and your team members will be taking up the role of talent management specialists.
As talent management specialists, you have to collaboratively investigate the talent management strategies and challenges of a company of your own choosing. You need to identify core talent management issues facing the company and propose ways the company can undertake to address those issues.
In order to investigate the talent management issues facing a company of your choice, you will need to do desktop research.
The rationale for this GBA
As budding HR professionals, it is important that you are able to identify key talent management issues and gaps in companies that you work in. It is also crucial that you are able to propose recommendations to the company to resolve those talent management issues, and to align talent management strategies to overall organisational strategic goals.
This GBA project allows you to develop the key skills of identifying and examining issues, critically evaluating talent management systems, and finally, applying theories and frameworks you have learned to solve talent management problems within the company.
Working in a Group
The ability to work well in groups is a key competency of an HR professional as an HR professional would need to deal with multiple stakeholders and work in teams. It is important that all of you contribute to this GBA. While it is up to you how you want to distribute the work in completing this GBA as a team, it is important that all of you make a contribution to the GBA.
You will be asked to complete a team evaluation form that rates the relative contributions of your team members in this GBA. You will submit this form to me in private via Canvas. Your evaluations of one another will allow me to gauge the relative inputs and contributions of each team member. I will make minor adjustments as I deem necessary based on the team evaluations.
The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted organisations and Human Resource functions greatly. With many employees now working from home, organisations have to now navigate the “New Normal” by adopting new practices to overcome challenges.
In this GBA, you are to conduct desk-top research to summarize key challenges organisations face in terms of talent management. Then, you have to select 2 of the challenges you have identified and propose ways to mitigate those challenges. See below for the questions you need to answer for this GBA.
Please conduct desktop research to answer this question. You would need to provide citations and references.
Applying the model of talent management (see figure 1.3 in HRM331 study guide), analyse the top 3 challenges organisations face in talent management due to the Covid-19 crisis. Your challenge can be about attracting, assessing, engaging, growing or optimizing talent.
In your answer, be sure to explain how the challenge is related to the Covid-19 crisis.
Select one of the challenges you have identified in Question 1. Design tools and create strategies to manage or mitigate the challenge you have identified. In this question, please also critique the strategies or talent management systems you have designed by addressing their limitations.
Select another challenge you have identified in Question 1. Design tools and strategies to manage or mitigate the challenge you have identified. In this question, please also critique the strategies or talent management systems you have designed by addressing their limitations.
Research on how to create a competencies framework. Then, identify core competencies employees will need for work in the new normal.
Construct a competencies framework for employees who need to navigate the new normal in organisations.
In your competencies framework, be sure to do the following:
1) Identify the core relevant competencies
2) Explain why the competencies are relevant in the Covid-19 situation.
3) Come up with 3 to 5 specific behavioural indicators under each competency.
