Resourcing and Talent Planning (RTP) ASSESSMENT

Unit Type: Core
Credit Value: 6 credits
Assessment Code: 5RTP (NAB I305001)
Background to Unit – Resourcing and Talent Planning (RTP)
A fundamental part of the human resource (HR) management role is concerned with the mobilisation of a workforce, taking responsibility for ensuring that the organisation is able to access the skills it needs at the time and in the places that it needs them to drive sustained organisation performance. This involves attracting, retaining and, from time to time, managing the departure of staff from the organisation. Achieving this requires insight-driven strategic and operational activity. Organisations are obliged to compete with one another to secure the services of a workforce in labour markets that are continually evolving. One of the major aims of this unit is thus to introduce learners to the strategic approaches that organisations take to position themselves as employers in the labour market and to plan effectively so that they are able to meet their current and anticipated organisational skills needs. Another is to introduce the key operational tools, techniques and practices that organisations use to resource their organisations effectively. These encompass recruitment, selection, workforce planning, staff retention, succession planning, retirement and dismissal processes. The purpose of this unit is to provide an overview of the way different organisations are managing these activities and which are the most effective in the context of diverse and distributed locations.
