Strategic Staffing Plan Research Assignment

Strategic Staffing Plan Research Assignment

Strategic Staffing Plan Research Assignment 

Much research has been conducted on the strategic function of human resources planning.  For example, consider the restructuring of a large organization to meet proposed changes in the strategic plan.  Some companies change their overall strategy more frequently (every 2-5 years) and some wait much longer.  When a company changes strategic plans, human resources are also a consideration.


Using the library databases, find peer-reviewed articles that present information on strategic planning from the human resources perspective.  Present your research in a written assignment. Hint: Research the FSW library databases using keywords such as “human resources strategy”, and set the search filters to limit the search to include only full-text, peer-reviewed sources.

The written component of this assignment should be a minimum of 3 full pages (not including the the title and reference pages) and should be cited and formatted according to APA Style (see the APA template, as well as additional APA resources included in the Orientation Module). 

Additional information:

  • See the link to the FSW Library Research Tutorial.  Be sure to review how to find peer-reviewed (scholarly) articles.  World Wide Web articles will not be accepted. 
  • The paper must be written in third person.  (See the “First.Second.Third Person Handout” in the Orientation Module.) 
  • Direct quotes are NOT permitted.
  • The paper should have one-inch margins.
