Report on HR professionals and line managers, outlining how their organisation can meet its strategic goals

Formative assessment brief

The formative assessment for this module involves the submission of a “report outline” (1-2 pages), including the key ideas and arguments that you will use to write your IHRM report.

The submission deadline is Friday, November 4th, 2022 (by 6:00 pm) via TurnitIn. You can expect to receive feedback from your tutor by the end of week 7.

There will be many feedback opportunities for you throughout the term and you are expected to engage continuously in the preparation of your assignment. You will be required to work on the different sections of your IHRM report in weeks 3, 6, 8, and 9 to gain feedback from your tutor and peers. All seminar activities are designed to support your learning and understanding of the assessment brief.

Summative assessment brief

Write a report (3,000 words; 10% flexibility) aimed at HR professionals and line managers, outlining how their organisation can meet its strategic goals by using a specific type of international assignment and implementing a training and support programme for international assignees.

For this task you will have to a) identify an organisation that operates internationally or plans to internationalise and b) identify (or propose) a strategic goal that will support their internationalisation plans.

Your report should include the following 4 sections:

1) Introduction (600 words) – Your introduction should:

  1. Specify the aim of the report.
  2. Introduce the organisation and one of its strategic goals related to internationalisation, which would require and benefit from the use of international assignments. Specify the home and host countries involved.
  3. Identify the organisation’s approach to internationalisation and explain the role of IHRM in supporting the organisation’s strategic goals. Use the literature to back up your arguments.

2) International assignment (1000 words) – This section should:

  1. Provide an overview of the different types of international assignments.
  2. Propose and justify the type of international assignment that best supports the organisation’s strategic goal.
  1. Discuss the characteristics of the proposed type of international assignment and critically analyse its advantages and disadvantages for both the organisation and international assignees. Use the literature to back up your arguments.

3) Cultural differences analysis and international assignee profile (400 words) – This section should:

  1. Present a brief analysis of the key cultural differences between the home and host countries, using well-established cultural frameworks (e.g. Hofstede or the Global Project).
  2. Critically discuss the implications of the cultural differences for international assignees, identifying the key aspects that they will need to consider to complete the proposed international assignment successfully. Refer to the characteristics of the “ideal” candidate for international assignments. Adapt your analysis to the characteristics and requirements of the proposed type of international assignment. Use the literature to back up your arguments.

4) Training and support programme (1,000 words) – This section should:

  1. Propose how the organisation can support assignees throughout their international assignment. Adapt your analysis to the characteristics and requirements of the proposed type of international assignment. If applicable, refer to the international assignment cycle (e.g. pre- departure, on-assignment and repatriation in the case of long-term assignments or short-term assignments). Use the literature to back up your arguments.
  2. Be comprehensive, and consider all relevant aspects of an international assignment, including the career development, personal development, and family aspects.

Referencing

All information and arguments in the report MUST be backed up by reliable, academic references. You MUST use the Harvard System for all your references. The Harvard system is very easy to use once you become familiar with it

Penalties for exceeding the word count on assessments

Students need to state the word count at the end of their assignment. 10% over the stated word count is permitted without penalty. If students go beyond this, then there is a penalty of 5 marks for every additional 10% beyond the word count with a maximum of a 15 mark penalty reduction.

Resit assessment

For the resit you will be expected to rework your initial assignment taking on-board the tutor feedback provided to you through Turnitin. In addition you will be expected to complete a reflective piece (up to 500 words) that clearly sets out the changes made to your initial assignment, why these changes have been made and a reflection on the broader lessons learnt from completing the resit. You can find detailed instructions for deferrals and resists on Moodle.

How will your work be assessed?

Your work will be assessed by a subject expert who will use the marking grid provided in this assessment brief. When you access your marked work it is important that you reflect on the feedback so that you can use it to improve future assignments. The following criteria will be used to assess your assignment. Please read carefully.
