You will assess and create the Strategic HR Plan around your topic.
You will identify an existing Health Care Organization and select a specific HR area of interest (Diversity, Compensation, Workforce Planning, Recruitment etc.) in that organization and assess from a strategic HR perspective.
Create a Strategic HR Plan incorporating the elements discussed in this class around this area of interest. Using your already performed SWOT analysis, discuss if the organization capitalizes on their human resources capabilities in this area. Are they at risk in any areas? What aspects of the organization’s strategy are particularly effective relative to HR? Implications?
Take a position on if the selected organization is doing the right thing. Use opinion supported by evidence. What is your position and why? Ensure that your position can be backed up with literature and best practices.
You will submit one 10-page paper (1 cover page; 8 pages of text; and 1 page for references). Provide at least 3 references…not including the primary text of this course: Human Resources in Healthcare.
