GENERAL COMMENTS

Instructor

Part 1- ESSAY (68%):

Q1- 10% Organizations’ overall strategy and its HRM strategy: 8

You have skilfully highlighted the overall generic strategies employed by Google as well as included various growth and development strategies the companies pursue simultaneously using both Porter’s and Ansoff’s framework. These highlighted strategies have been used to explore how the overall organisational strategies of the business feeds into current HRM strategies and policies implemented contemporarily in the organisation.

Q2- 15% Nature and characteristics of HRM, drawing on theory: 12

Very good attempt at explaining and rationalising the need for and use of SHRM in contemporary businesses with contextual relevance to your chosen organisation of study Google. You have drawn on the relevant theories itemising the schools of thought as to the practice of SHRM as well as adequately contextually critiqued the same.

Q3- 25% People mgt strategies, tools and procedures in chosen organization for TWO topics: 22

Very clearly articulated narrative that have been skilfully linked through to the current practices of your chosen organisations Google. Your narrative is also easy to follow through and have used a varied amount of in-text citation to substantiate your arguments for both the People Resourcing and Reward Management HRM features contextually employed within the organisation. For example, the use of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs framework applied to motivate different

categories/levels of staff through practices such as free meals etc.

Q4- 20% Critically analysis of HR practice-based challenges, relating rhetoric to reality: 15

Very good exemplification of real-life operational HR challenges critically discussed in your narrative.

Q5- 10% Alternative approaches to managing and leading people within the business context: 7

Some very good suggestions included here particularly leveraging technological advantages often previously looked down upon as a vital alternative way to effective management certain aspects of people management practices such as the ATS for R&S processes at Google.

Q6- 5% Overall Presentation & use of sources/referencing: 4

A very good presentation of your ideas with some balanced elements of criticality demonstrated as well as substantiated with a reasonable amount of in-text citations.

Part 2- POSTER (15%): 10

QI- 8% FOUR strategically and culturally appropriate HR practice recommendations: 5

Some very apt and useful recommendations inferred in your narrative for this section. But this could have been better clearly articulated to have a more impactful effect on your reader.

QII- 7% Visually impactful poster useful by the HR Director for the Corporate board: 5

Your poster is very clear and simply presented with fairly the right number of pictures and visual

graphics included. The font colour (somewhat dull looking) and sizing (too small) however needed to be reviewed to be more impactful to your intended audience.

TOTAL = 78% of 100

AREA(s) FOR IMPROVEMENT

Overall, your narrative is well structured and contextually relevant to your chosen organisations. But would have liked to see more elements of critique, wider variety of in-text citation to buttress your responses as well as real-life examples to buttress your argued points and suggestions’.

2nd marker (SZ): I can fully agree with the first marker’s comments and marks. It is good to see a quality piece of work indicating a broad understanding of the organisation’s operations and processes. It is also interesting to see the connections between this submission and your submission for LD4043 on the same organisation. It is good that you have managed to research one organisation and still write two pieces without significant similarity.
