Roles of human resource management
One of the most important roles of human resource management is finding the right staff for the organisation. In the current, changing business environment this is presenting the HR manager with a number of challenges. The scarcity of skills and talent, the need to hire for aptitude and potential not current skills, and the need to match employee and organisational values are being widely debated.
Critically examine the changing focus of staffing policy, using practical illustrations, to demonstrate how and why the focus on staffing practice has changed. Examples can be drawn from your own experience, workplace and academic literature.

Essays are a learning tool. They require you to gather and assess a range of information in relation to a particular question. To do this you need to distinguish between information that is relevant and not relevant, evaluate what people have said, and arrive at your own ideas on the topic based upon the different perspectives and viewpoints you have examined. Your ideas then need to be presented in such a way that the reader can clearly understand your view, the debate surrounding the topic and how you have arrived at your position. This means your ideas must be clearly articulated, logically presented and well supported.
