a) Your current employer
b) A previous employer, or

important is that you have had exposure to the company and, therefore, have
some knowledge and understanding of the approaches the companies use to
manage their staff and how they organise their HRM activities and functions.
You are allowed to collect relevant data through primary research (e.g.
staff/management interviews and questionnaires etc).secondary research (e.g.
companies website and academic literature etc)
Consult with your lecturer if you are uncertain about any aspect of the
assignment. You should ensure that you refer to the relevant module concepts
and theories to demonstrate your understanding of the relationship between
theory and practice
