...1.1 Explain the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be effective in an identified HR or L&D role. The explanation should refer to the HRPM, and include a summary of the HRPM (particularly the 2 core professional areas) and an explanation of the activities and knowledge, at either band 1 or 2, of any one of the professional areas. The CIPD HR Profession Map specifies the activities, knowledge and behaviours involved in different HR/L&D roles. It’s a framework of things you need to do and know in order to be a successful HR professional. The HRPM is made up of 10 Professional Areas, the 4 Bands of Professional Competence and the 8 Behaviours. The two Core Professional Areas are Leading and managing and Insights, Strategy and Solutions. These areas are vital to all HR professionals. Insights, Strategy and Solutions - This area deals with the professional’s understanding and insight into an organisation. Through knowledge of how the business works an HR professional can put into practice strategic solutions to effectively manage an organisation’s specialist requirements. Leading HR - To effectively lead in HR one must act as a ‘role-model leader’. This includes developing yourself professionally, whilst also leading, supporting, and tracking others development.

Write a report in which you:  Briefly summarise the HRPM (i.e. the 2 core professional areas, the remaining professional areas, the bands and the behaviours) The (Human Resources Profession Map (HRMP) is designed to show what best practice might look like within all areas, and across all levels of Human Resources (HR) and Learning and Development (L&D). Information on this map is shown (below) by a circle made up of a core and 3 layers, and also 4 bands which are displayed to the side. Starting from the core, I’ll work my way out through the layers to the outer edge of the circle, and then discuss the bands, one by one. The core of the circle is applicable to all HR professionals, and is central to all roles. There are two aspects of the core – the very centre, labelled, ‘Insights, strategy and solutions, and the ring around this, which is defined as ‘Leading HR’. The centre reminds us that the HR professional have continuous awareness of business strategies and areas of weakness and have the skills and capability to provide genuine business solutions that fit with organisational values. Professionals should be able to consider a range of needs and factors, such as customer needs, financial constraints and political climate.

...and explain how it supports the Organisations strategy as well as supporting our Managers and colleagues on a daily basis. I have focused on three main activities, Recruitment and selection, Learning and Development and Performance Management and also discussed the impact of legislation on each activity. 3 RECRUITMENT AND Selection It is essential to maintain a well-founded recruitment and selection process to employ the “Right people with the right skills.” Both internal and external factors, such as economics, skill shortages, and the organisations short term and future goals have to be considered. Workforce planning is implemented and constantly reviewed to keep the company up to date and competitive within a changing economy. CIPD Factsheet (Workforce Planning, revised Oct 2015). Recruitment is a huge cost to the Organisation so it’s crucial it is managed effectively and legislation adhered to. HR has specialised knowledge and supports the Organisation by delivering the following activities by a fair non-discriminatory process • Job analysis – Determining if the job is still a genuine vacancy. Reviewing the job description and person specification to fit the role and the company culture. • Selection Methods – Identifying and utilising the correct resources to determine the most suitable candidate. E.g. Psychometric testing, Assessment Centres. Shortlisting candidates. • Advertising – Internal and External. Adopting the relevant medium and style of advert to......

...during the entire session. NEGATIVE Language: Having a session with multicultural adults can cause confusion and misunderstanding with some learners. It is important to ask questions if they understood everything and also speak slow and clear. Location of venue: As all learners come from different parts of the country it is important to familiarize them with the location and how to get there. It needs to be close to public transport and have a nearby car park. Also the surrounding should be peaceful as noise from traffic or other factors can impact negatively on the session. Principles of adult learning Principle How the planned activity reflects 1. Adults are internally motivated and self-directed. As all the learners choose the CIPD course it makes them highly motivated and self-directed. 2. Adults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiences. Formative assessments throughout the session by questioning learners about their experiences and opinions. 3. Adults are goal oriented. Setting up aims and SMART objectives helps learners to fully understand the importance of the training session. 4. Adults are relevancy oriented. Regardless the size of the business, excellent customer service needs be at the heart of the business model in order to be successful. 5. Adults are practical. Adult learners like to learn from real life examples, by explaining the Nixon and Kennedy presidential debate helps them to understand how body language can......
