Overview of the Portfolio Assessment
The aim of this assessment is to help you to develop the knowledge, understanding and key skills that are required by today’s HR professionals working in global environments.

Outline of the IHRM Portfolio Assessment
The portfolio is built around the case of a Mexican company called BreezeMex, which is looking to send a number of employees on an international assignment in the UK. The portfolio tasks explore a variety of IHRM-related issues covered in the weekly lecture and seminars/tutorials. As the portfolio counts towards 70% of your grade for the IHRM module, it is important that you spend a significant amount of time preparing each of the tasks carefully. You will be expected to draw on the theory presented to you in class and to apply it to the organisation issues. However, you are also expected to engage in further reading and to do some research, to provide fully referenced responses to the questions in each of the tasks. Remember to provide a reference list at the end of each task.
The table below provides an outline of the 6 tasks, in order to give you an indication of the marks available for each task and the suggested number of words for each answer:
