Using the SHRM case study (an organization named PAC) provided, students will apply their knowledge about business and the function of Human Resources. In addition the use of a common business tool, a Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) assessment is used to assess both the HR domains and the role the HR function is performing in the organization.
It is anticipated that the presentation will be approximately seven to ten slides, written in bullet points with additional notes, if needed, included in the notes section of the presentation, and demonstrate good academic writing style. In text citations and references will be presented in APA format and are in addition to the approximately seven to ten slides. At least one scholarly source is to be included on the reference page along with corresponding in text citations in the content of the presentation. Students are to use the UMUC writing center or Owl Purdue online writing center for tutoring on APA format for in text citations and reference lists.
