The paper 'The Recruitment and Remuneration Strategies Adopted by USC" is a good example of a human resources case study.   Human resource management refers to the modalities that human resource management performs in a strategic and coherent way to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the organization’ s employees. This includes training employees, mentoring, planning for the succession in various leadership positions (MüLler 2011, 120). It is important for human resource managers to treat and empower employees in a worthy way. In order to manage human resources, there is a need to develop a good framework for the whole development system.

This essay will highlight the recruitment and remuneration strategies adopted by the University of Southern California (USC). 1. Critically evaluate the recruitment and remuneration strategies adopted by USC. The approach given by the USC Company in the recruitment of these two top scientists was very skeptical. For many years this company fought the quest of trying to win these employees but all in vain. However, minor things convinced these two topmost world scientists to accept the deal offered by the University of Southern California (USC), leaving behind the place they have been working in for nearly two decades (MüLler 2011, 90).

One thing that remains clear is that these individuals were not only interested in high salary, but were also putting other factors into consideration. That is why from a simple conversation Arthur Toga and Paul Thompson accepted to work with the USC Company. The company despite spending many years trying to convince these two to join never gave up. Instead, they worked on more measures to enable them to attract these individuals despite the great demand in the industry for their services (Elias and Michael 2008, 137).

These thus make them exceptional since, through their determination, they managed to achieve their desired goals of having these employees in the end. Working out a tactical plan to poach them was a task that involved many changes in the organizational structures as well as the manner of operations.
