Write a 2,000-word (+\- 10%) literature review of human resource management (HRM) on a contemporary HRM topic, and report on its implication for business practice.

Through this assignment, you will develop fundamental knowledge and skills required for HR practice, including:

  • researching and collating/organising information effectively
  • gathering and evaluation data sets
  • reviewing the potential impacts of contemporary HRM issues for business practices
  • presenting findings in a clear and logical order
  • contextualising academic research and connecting it with what actually happens (practically) in organisations/the field.

What am I required to do?

Overall: Provide your individual academic understanding of a selected topic and its implications for HRM and business strategy.

To do so, conduct independent research for your literature review and use at least twelve (12) scholarly peer-reviewed articles (published since the year 2010).

The literature review should identify key themes and issues and have a clear, logical structure.

Step 1: Read all assessment materials provided on Canvas. Please refer to the marking rubric for this assessment to see marking criteria and achievement expectations. Highlight everything you don’t understand. If you have any assessment-related questions, pop them into the Assessment Q&A discussion board, and your facilitator will respond.

Step 2: Choose one of the following topics for your literature review:

  1. Generation Z
  2. Psychological well-being
  3. Flexible work practices
  4. Expatriation
  5. Talent management
  6. Gender diversity
  7. Gig economy
  8. Green human resource management
  9. Artificial intelligence
  10. Other topics can be selected in consultation with your lecturer

Step 3: Have a look at the ECU literature review academic tip sheet.

Step 4: Now start your research into your topic. You can find tips on how to conduct research here: https://ecu.au.libguides.com/business-resourcesLinks to an external site.

Step 5: Read your articles closely and make yourself more familiar with their content. Take notes while reading and ask yourself, for example, what is the purpose of the article? What is the literature about? What are the key findings reported in the article?

Step 6: Follow the template below to complete your assessment. The following is a suggested literature review format:

  • A title page: Includes title of literature review
  • Abstract (not included in word count): This should contain the aim of the literature review a brief background summary, brief details of the investigation or research you have undertaken, the major findings or key issues arising, and any recommendations if these are appropriate.
  • An introduction (200 words +/- 10%): In a literature review your introduction needs to identify the purpose of the research and the selected topic. This section should also set the scene by discussing the significance of the area under investigation and map out the remainder of the literature review for the reader.
  • The main body (1,600 words +/- 10%) should include relevant headings and sub-headings identifying the key themes, issues and discussion of the selected topic. Headings should be kept simple, and the content should be able to be read without these. Your literature review should be referenced to support your arguments and analysis.
  • A conclusion (200 words +/- 10%):This section should be written in your words and must pull together the key points you have discussed and identify future directions (i.e. ‘where to from here’). It should not introduce new material.
  • A reference list (not included in word count): APA 7th edition

How long should my review be?

Word count is 2,000 words (plus or minus 10%), excluding abstract, table of content and reference list.

Which referencing style do I use?

APA 7th edition is the required referencing style. Check here for more information: https://www.ecu.edu.au/centres/library-services/how-to-guides/referencing

All references cited in the body of your paper should be listed in full at the end of the assessment. You should not have any source material in your reference list which is not included within the text of the assessment. Valuable marks are thrown away by not taking enough care with referencing.


Prescribed textbook and exclusively scholarly peer-reviewed journal articles (since the year 2010) must be cited.

Please note, while your textbook is a useful starting point for this assignment, it is expected that you will consult a wider variety of academic sources and conduct significant research prior to writing the review.
