A Talent Management Plan (Individual Assessment; 50%)
Recently, the top management team in HSBC Australia has been worried about the impact that all the changes in the modern business world have brought, and wants to tackle many of the issues and challenges as a result of these changes by drafting a talent management plan for the next 10 years. This plan will help HSBC Australia manage its human resources and stay competitive in the banking industry.
Imagine that you work for a consulting company which is specialised in human resource management. HSBC Australia has hired your company to draft the talent management plan for them. You are assigned to work with HSBC on this task.
Please draft a Talent Management Plan for HSBC Australia, drawing on:
- the Oracle White Paper (link: The future of talent management: Underlying drivers of change) and,
- what you have learned in your lectures by the deadline of the assignment, or any other relevant materials.
In this plan, you need to describe what challenges the company might be facing, and what do you think the company should do in relation to talent management, and why they should take these measures.

The essay needs to be well structured and coherent such that it clearly communicates insights and critical thinking. This assessment piece will be assessed primarily on their ability to recognise, analyse and discuss the key issues, theories and practices relevant to contemporary management. When you submit your assignments, go to â€œAssessment tasksâ€ in the Blackboard, where you can find two Turnitin submission sites at the bottom of the page. The first one, â€œTalent Management Planâ€”Draftâ€, is meant for you to try out the submission process and check the originality of your submitted assignments. You can submit your work as many times as you want. Your submitted work will NOT be graded. Once you are familiar with the submission process and happy with your work, you can then submit a final version through â€œTalent Management Planâ€”Finalâ€. Please note that you can only submit your final version to the Talent Management Plan–Final one time.
a. Late submissions will be penalised 10% of the full marks allocated to this assessment (i.e., 5 marks) per day including weekends.
b. As a rough guide, over 20% of matches in the originality report will be considered as plagiarism. However, it also depends on the nature of the matches. For example, if you have 10% matches in your submitted work, but these matches indicate you might have copied a whole paragraph from some source, it will still be considered as plagiarism.
