Aims and objectives

This unit introduces students to the theory and practice of Human Resource Management (HRM). Students will develop an understanding of a range of HR activities, including staff recruitment, training, employee relations, remuneration, performance management, and employee health and safety among others. Some key themes of the unit are the notion of Strategic HRM and the utility of employees as a key form of competitive advantage for organisations. This unit provides a strong overview of HRM and therefore provides an ideal platform for students to build both generalist and specialist HR knowledge.
