I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Human Resource Issues of MAJOR BANK PLC. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. Today, with the increasing researchers desire to demonstrate the importance of an effective human resource policy on organization performance research has shifted from a micro level that previously dominated research interest to a more general, strategic macro level (Doty &Delery 1996). The term human resource management is not new. It has been widely used by scholars and managers to refer to the set of policies designed to maximize organizational integration, employee commitment, flexibility and quality of work (Poole 1999).

HRM does not only create a competitive advantage for the organization but is the force underpinning an organization’s success (Turner, Keegan & Hueman 2006:317). No wonder, the way HRM practices and policies take shape also affects the employee’s experiences of work and the employment relationship (Turner, Keegan & Hueman 2006:317). Within the mainstream HRM literature, there is a long tradition of research arguing that in order to make an optimal contribution to firm performance, HRM policies and practices should be integrated both with firm strategy, so-called vertical strategic integration and with each other, so-called horizontal integration. Paul Isles best fit model attached in the appendix lay emphasis on this. Against this background, this paper addresses some of the pertinent human resource issues identified in the case of Major Bank Plc. The second part of the paper provides an overview of the human resource problems in Major Bank Plc. The third part of the paper uses Paul Iles Best fit model to provide a recommendation.
