Introduction

This unit offers students the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding to ensure that an organisation has the skills it requires, at the time it requires them, to meet its strategic intent. Sustainable organisation performance and growth requires a constant reassessment of skills, requirements which will then inform the training and development of existing employees. However, there will always be the need to recruit new staff to support organisational growth, or to replace those who leave. This unit focuses on the latter, and students will engage in learning that provides fundamental knowledge relating to recruitment, selection, succession planning and talent management.

On successful completion of this unit students will have the knowledge and skills to make a positive contribution to the human resource function of an organisation.

Students will appreciate the way different organisations are managed, thereby putting themselves in a position to contribute to effective resource and talent planning in the context of diverse and distributed locations.
