Outline and Objectives
Human Resource Management (HRM) is about managing people. How do you motivate, reward and develop them? In recent years there has been a growing interest in the importance of HRM for the strategic development of leading organisations. Companies have found that effective management of their staff can increase their competitive position.
The aim of this subject is to study the main functions and contemporary debates within the field of HRM from an international and comparative perspective. You will be expected to understand how the various functions of HRM fit together. You will also be expected to critically analyse the strategic role of this function within an organisation and to draw on contemporary examples from existing practices in several countries.
The three key aims of this subject are to help you to:
- identify the key areas of HRM, the problems faced by HR Managers and the skills required of this function in an organisation
- become familiar with the conflicting theories which account for current practices
- inform yourself of ‘real world’ examples of current HRM practices in an international context and to develop explanations for these differing practices.
