Goals
This Human Resource Management course aims at introducing students to the field of human resource management by reporting both theory and practice. The goals of the course are to introduce students to the various issues that arise in human resource management, as well as to familiarise students with the various tools available to deal with these issues and to provide a framework for evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of different tools in different cases. Obviously, the descriptive nature of this course invites students to develop a critical understanding of the management of human resources in various business contexts. This implies that you will not learn how to run and practice HRM but rather why certain phenomena occur in the field of HRM and in the context of different organisational environments.
Description
The course is based on the assumption that there is no single 'one best way' of managing human resources but rather that a range of approaches may be applicable to any one organisation, depending on its environment, its business context and its employees.
Consecutive issues in this course among others are: HRM in business organisations, strategy and strategic HRM; human resources and staffing, compensation; HRM in small enterprises and benchmarking HRM.
