Description of module content:

You will critically evaluate the policies and processes involved in resourcing the organisation. You will examine the role of employee resourcing and how it can contribute to effective performance and employee well-being at the individual level and achieving competitive advantage at organisational level. You will develop an understanding of the practical utilisation of resourcing interventions in organisations and the complexities involved in introducing and implementing these. You will critically reflect on both theory and your practice from an ethical and professional standpoint.

The Employee Resourcing module allows you to reflect upon and examine the range of methods and approaches used by employers to resource their organisations and enable them to meet strategic goals. In examining this, the module takes account of both internal and external contextual factors influencing organisational approaches to diversity, health and wellbeing, talent management and human resource planning, flexibility, recruitment, selection, performance management and reward management. 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 provides you with the knowledge to debate the theory and philosophy of employee resourcing and understand the contribution of resourcing interventions to business effectiveness.
