Base on this week’s reading, I believe that we are studying HRM in the first week because it lays the foundation for what need to happen to move employees toward business objectives. Strategy from HR manager is meant to support the overall mission of the organization. To include writing and enforcing the policy are in aligned with the organization’s mission, goals, and objectives. HR management must also be aware of the internal and external environment to ensure they are allied with the organization’s goal and objective. For example, HR manager’s strategy will need to include organization culture, multicultural hiring, retention of employees, benefits and processes that move employee toward company objectives and goals. For external factor, HR managers will need to understand external threat, strength, weakness, and opportunity that effect employees and the overall organization, for example new laws and regulation (Business Jargons, n.d.).
