MAN4301 Final Exam Essay (Individual Assignment #2) Instructions Why we should love HR? Remember that before our first class, we all read the article “Why we hate HR” that was published in 2005? It has been more than a decade since that article was published and there were drastic changes during the past 15 years. The editor of the journal now comes to you, and asks you to write a brief rebuttal article entitled “Why we should love HR”. You could talk about: • Do you agree/disagree with the arguments made by the original article? Are there any arguments that you find wrong/inaccurate/biased? Why or why not? • What are some reasons of why we shouldn’t hate HR? Why is HR so important to employees and the general functioning of organizations? • How can we make organizations to recognize the importance of HR? When writing the article, make sure you: • Think about all the topics we have covered, such as recruitment, job analysis, selection, performance management, training and development, turnover, compensation, diversity and discrimination, strategic HR and cross-cultural/global HR management when you write the article. Cover as many topics as possible in your article. • Include cases and/or observations of the significant incidents/changes in the last decade that, in your opinion, changed the role of HR in organizations (e.g., technology, automation, increasing emphasis on health and work-life balance…). Try to insert brief (i.e., 2-3 sentences) cases or examples throughout the article when you are trying to make a point. • The format would be a journal article – imagine how it would appear in a business journal. Use languages that are professional and straightforward. • Write it in essay format, not answering questions one by one. Make a cohesive story line – have 3 to 6 main themes and/or subtitles like the article “why we hate HR”, it’s a better way showing that you have a good logic flow. *Remember the article is a rebuttal to the article “why we hate HR”. What I have listed above are just some typical approaches I thought of, and by no means you have to follow it. You could be creative in writing, but the ultimate goal is to convince the reader that we shouldn’t hate HR, we should love it. Formatting and logic flow: • The article should be 800-1200 words. • Use sub-headings (see the original article “Why we hate HR” for example) to describe the main themes. • I have posted some additional articles as resources – there’s no need to read all of them, but in case you want some supplemental ideas, that is a great starting point. • Upload through Turnitin on Canvas – the system will run plagiarism analysis. You could use materials online but make sure you say it in your own words and cite the source (changing “I want to” to “I prefer” is not called paraphrasing!!). You can use any format you are comfortable with (e.g., APA, MLA, etc.). I am aware that there are a number of articles online – those are great resources for you to get some ideas. But at the end of the day, I want to hear what you have to say, NOT what you can find online. • Plagiarism will be taken very seriously in this course. Do not risk it!!!
