Week 6 Summary

Closure of the topic HRM Architecture, with goals and presenting next session's topic.
You almost reached the end of this session. In this session we made a distinction between internalization and externalization. With internalization we mean developing employees at the organization and by externalization we mean buying them on the market. By making use of the strategic value and uniqueness of employees, we have shown that you can manage and design the employment portfolio and corresponding HRM systems The HRM architecture is not only the responsibility of HRM specialists or the HRM departments. There are also other HR actors involved. This is the so called HR function. The HR Function will be the topic of the next session. Thank you very much for participating and hopefully, see you next time!

This is already the end of the session about HRM Architecture. In this video, Maarten will summarize the session’s content.
