As HR expert, you have been asked to help the YORLAB management to design the new HR strategy for the changes ahead. Please consider the following three steps in designing the HR strategy:
1) HR strategy content: Critically explore and propose how people should be managed in the YORLAB, what should be the underlying HR philosophy and most importantly what will be the nature of HR strategy itself.
2) HR strategy process issues: Critically conduct an environmental analysis of the factors that might influence the successfully implementation of HRM strategy and evaluate what will be the key HR strategic direction that YORLAB should adopt to develop the proposed HR strategy.
3) HR strategy implementation: Critically evaluate how the HR strategy should be implemented in practice and propose appropriate HR practices that the management should consider to encourage the adoption of the proposed HR strategy.
