Assessment task details and instructions

Select two questions from the following four and write a short essay of approx. 1500 words for each answer (i.e. a total of 3,000 words, not including the final reference list).
Q1. Many careers develop in more of a ‘planned happenstance’ than strategically crafted way according to Mitchell, Levinn & Krumboltz (1999). Discuss this perspective, highlighting what employees wishing to progress an international career might do to achieve this (50 marks) and what HR departments in large organisations might do to support such career ambitions (50 marks)
Q2. Training and development are high-cost activities, but with a potentially high return. Discuss what companies should consider when designing an employee development programme (50 marks) and how they might maximise the return on their investment (50 marks)
Q3. What factors should companies operating across both developed and emerging economies consider in designing a pay and reward process (100 marks)
Q4. Discuss how globalisation and the presence of institutional fields impact the way in which HRM operates within multi/transnational companies (100 marks).
