Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this module students should be able to:
To provide knowledge and understanding of the institutions, participants, processes and outcomes in Human Resource
Management as well as the contexts in which its management is practised and its theoretical foundations.
To require students to reflect on the conduct of the management of employment at both the organisational and the national
level. Consequently, they will develop awareness of productivity and labour market issues and evaluate their attitudes towards those issues.
To develop and sharpen analytical skills involved in problem solving and decision-making in this field of management through
analysis of situations, the identification of constraints and possible outcomes (including suggestions of appropriate strategies).
This module explores the responsibility of organisations for the sound management of their employees. Necessarily, a prime feature will be the rapidly changing context in which this occurs and the consequent revisions in personnel policy and practice that have been occurring in employing organisations.
This module considers the strategic aspect of HRM with due attention to its main generic components.
Beginning with the importance of HRM for line management, the module deals with selection, performance review, rewards, training and development to end with employment relations and a brief look at employment law.
