Project #16871 - Managing a Diverse and Global Workforce

Managing a Diverse and Global Workforce



Main aim(s) of the module:


The Module provides insight into different international HRM approaches and by means of country specific HRM Models and practices, explores the aspects of equality and diversity, including organisational behaviour and the nature of formal and informal processes in organisations which influence the implementation and effectiveness of equality and diversity initiatives, the labour market, demographic trends and the wider social, economic and political context.


These module aims are implemented through a set of Learning Outcomes.

The Learning Outcomes for the module are set out below. Passing the module means that you can show you have met the outcomes by satisfactorily completing the assessment tasks.


The Learning Outcomes are also allotted to key skills which have been identified as those skills you need to develop to show understanding of their subject and prepare for work and life.


On completion of the module, you should be able to:



1.     Demonstrate a broad comprehension of the complex nature of initiatives in the field of International HRM.


Thinking skills

2      Demonstrate critical analytical ability in the examination of a range of contemporary International HRM concepts.


Subject-based practical skills

3      Show understanding and reflective analysis of the importance of contexts and external and internal environments influencing the choice and effectiveness of HRM initiatives.


Skills for life and work (general skills)

4      Demonstrate written and oral understanding of the nature, concepts and approaches in global human resource management practices, with the effective ability to communicate through presentational methods.

1. Assignment





A 2000 word critical report on a contemporary international equality/diversity issue, based on a country model in line with the main aims of the module.


On the module, we have covered various countries but there are others that you might like to cover. We have also covered aspects such as inequality of pay, gender, age, race, inequality regimes, aspects of working conditions that you may choose to focus on for this component.


Please make sure that you include an introduction and a conclusion.


 The following criteria will be taken into account in the assessment of the Assignment and relate to the learning outcomes as indicated:


Students will be expected to show that they are able to integrate the relevant areas as covered by the module into the essay and to ensure that the learning outcomes are addressed.


Another point to consider is the need to include critical analysis in the essay since this is expected at level 2. If you are unsure about critical analysis, you need to check the skills development available through in the library as well as the writing skills development books available in the library.

General Grading Criteria Used To Assess Work








(70% or above)

Ideas critically analysed.  Argument is clear, succinct and well supported.  Evidence of a wide range of reading and some independent thought.


Upper Second


Critical consideration of relevant ideas.  Arguments are precisely defined and appropriately referenced.  The work is structurally sound and well written.


Lower Second


Reasonable understanding of the relevant concepts, but some inconsistencies in application.  Arguments are referenced, but disjointed.  Poor structure, spelling or grammar.




Generally descriptive work with limited evidence of a critical consideration of ideas.  Inadequate referencing.  Weaknesses in structure, spelling and grammar.



(below 40%)

Uncritical.  Poorly referenced.  Argument indicates little use of relevant literature.  Chaotic structure and generally badly written.



General Presentation


The project must be word processed or typed on A4 paper, double spaced with 25mm margins. The font and font size must be such that the project is easily readable e.g. a font size of either 12 or 14 point (excluding headings). Use widely-used fonts such as Arial, not those that might be considered informal or unusual.


Pages must be sequentially numbered.


Chapters, sections and sub-sections must be clearly identified and sequentially numbered or lettered with separate chapters beginning on a new page.


Diagrams, graphs, figures, tables, pictures and charts must be incorporated into the project, NOT photocopies stuck in and they should be clearly labelled and referenced.


References must be accurately provided in the text using the Harvard System (see Saunders et al. 2009).

All quotations must be acknowledged and correctly presented within the text i.e. other than very short ones, quotations should be indented and in single spacing. (see Saunders et al for further details).

Number of words should be mentioned at the end of the dissertation and before the bibliography.


Submission of Work


Submission is through TURNITIN only. No hard copies required. Please read carefully the TURNITIN submission instruction and make sure that you submit as early as possible to avoid any technical problems that could prevent your submission in time. There will be no excuses for late submission. Late submissions are not accepted and will not be marked. You are advised to keep a copy of your project for your own retention and use (e.g. to show to prospective employers).




No extensions can be given so you are recommended to set yourself a date to finish ahead of the deadline to give yourself some room for last minute delays or interruptions (including the likes of internet or software failures etc.).
