Develop an appropriate HRM policy for QANTAS

Develop an appropriate HRM policy for QANTAS

Order Description

QANTAS is Australia’s flagship airline and as such is recognised as Australia’s national carrier. However, intense competition both globally and domestically and the impact of increased operating costs, have severely eroded the company’s profitability.

QANTAS has pursued strategies of cost reduction through downsizing, outsourcing and the introduction of new technologies and this raises questions about the possible long term effects of this strategy and its implications for QANTAS’ HRM and employee relations.

QANTAS has recently announced that it will be downsizing another five thousand jobs as part of a corporate restructuring programme focused on achieving $2 billion in cost savings for the airline.

Assume that you are the newly appointed HR Director for QANTAS, analyse QANTAS’ history of downsizing and outsourcing, consider the HRM impacts on motivation and performance management and employee relations.
