Description of module content:

The module examines the range of methods and approaches used by employers to resource their organisations to enable them to meet their strategic goals. In examining these, the module is structured under the umbrella heading of Talent Management (in other words, the need to have the right skills/talent available, and in the right place at the right time). The module takes account of both internal and external contextual factors influencing organisational approaches to talent, including: job and competency analysis; recruitment; selection; human resource (HR) planning and flexibility; diversity; performance management; reward management; and employer branding. The module recognises the challenge for organisations, HR and line managers to minimise employee costs at the same time as trying to maximise employee value, and it provides scope to debate the theory and philosophy of employee resourcing within the reality of its everyday use.
