Review Questions

This website should be useful to anyone interested in HRM but it is also an electronic companion to the book: Human Resource Management in a Business Context. The book is used as a basic textbook for part-time and distance-learning courses in a number of countries throughout the world. Page 282 of the book includes 7 review questions focusing on the issues discussed in this section. The questions are not shown here (you need the book) The following hints and signposts are provided to help readers without regular tutor contact answer the questions for themselves.

General notes One of the best ways of starting any answer is to define the key terms in the question. This is helpful to you and to anyone who reads your answer. It is worth remembering also that - legislative aspects excepted - HRM is very much a matter of opinion. It is often useful to deal with questions by forming an argument which presents two or more contrasting viewpoints. You could do this by investigating the views of different theorists, comparing alternative models, or contrasting practice in one organization (or country) with another.

Try to avoid a one-sided answer, even if it draws on your own experience and you are totally convinced that you are right. Finish off your answer by summarising the keypoints of each point of view and give your balanced opinion. This should be based clearly on the weight of evidence. Be sure to ground your answer in research evidence or views expressed in the literature (books, journals, etc.).
