Human Resource Management

Course 7.5 credits

Human resource management is of increasing importance in modern organisations. The nature, operation and philosophy of human resource management (HRM) and its environmental and organisational context are widely discussed among practitioners and academics. This course deals with organisational behaviour as it relates to the management of the workforce. It focuses on the philosophical, operational, and contextual stances behind the evolution of human resources as a pervasive and influential management approach. The course covers three major themes: 1) the nature of human resource management 2) a European perspective on human resource management 3) human resource management in a changing organisational landscape. The course provides a broad introduction to contemporary human resource management theory and practice and its relevance to other management activities. The aim is to provide a theoretical framework for further study and managerial practice in the field, and to increase awareness of the holistic nature of organisational management. The course includes lectures and seminars held by senior lecturers and visiting lecturers who are managers in well-known organisations. Seminars are based on reading assignments, group assignments, discussions, and the presentation of course papers. Course assessment includes written tests, seminar papers and an essay.
