HRM SLP Homework
It is important for HRM professionals to keep up on the HRM field. In the SLP homework in this class, you will be investigating an HRM practitioner publication, HR Magazine (found in ProQuest from the Trident Online Library). It is the main publication of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM)-the largest professional association dedicated to HR professionals.
Select an article of your choice, published within the past three years, related to a topic in this module. Discuss the following:
What main points does the author (or authors) make? Do you agree? Why or why not? What would make this article stronger? Bring in at least one other author viewpoint on the topic (from your background readings or library research), comparing or contrasting it to the article that you read.
You have a choice for the format of your submission, either submit:
o An essay (2 to 3 pages, not counting the cover page or the Reference page) which includes an introduction and conclusion
o A PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes on each slide. Not counting the cover slide or the Reference slide, your slide presentation should be 3-5 slides.
