Scenario

Assume  for this assignment that you are being highly considered for a  director-level HR management position for a best-in-class national  retailer. You are in the final phase of the interview process and must  respond to the interview panel regarding specific questions and  scenarios that will help them determine if you are a good fit for the  new role. The company's culture is centered on the effective development  of strategy, plans, and selection criteria aimed at building and  sustaining a competitive and profitable organization. It will be  extremely important that you respond with a strategic mindset in order  to convince the organization you are able to help them ensure the  execution of the business strategy. 

Instructions

Write a six- to seven-page paper in which you do the following: 

  • Analyze  and discuss types of business strategies (cost leadership,  differentiation, and focus or niche) and select which one you would deem  more appropriate for an "efficiency-minded" retail organization and  explain your rationale. How would the selected strategy ultimately  affect how HR does its job? 
  • Examine  the four approaches to job design or redesign and provide an example  (not a definition) of each. Then, make your case on the importance of  effective job design applications in supporting the overall strategic  goals of the organization.  
  • Consider  at least 3 challenges and constraints in recruiting and discuss. What  advice would you give to the management team to deal with the challenges  or constraints? Be specific.  
  • Review  the selection process exhibit on page 188 of the Lussier textbook. Now,  identify and describe 2–3 additional selection process ideas that might  add value and effectiveness to the process you reviewed. Example: 5 Tips for Designing an Effective Employee Selection System. Also, what problems should HR and management teams avoid during the selection process? 
  • Use at least four quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: You  may only use the resources listed in the Course Resources section and  those that are specifically provided by the professor.
