MGMT13-305: Human Resource Management


Human Resource Management (HRM) is an integral part of your future career as a manager in any organisation.  Nearly all managers are involved in forecasting staffing needs in their departments, recruiting and selecting new employees, training and developing these employees, appraising and nurturing their performance, and motivating them through pay and rewards.  These activities must effectively support the organisation’s strategic goals and also be legal, fair and consistent.  This intermediate level subject will develop your understanding and hands-on skills related to HRM. Knowing about HRM will also help when you are looking for a job or working in a non-managerial role since everyone is affected by their organisation’s human resource practices.  While the focus of this subject is on what all managers need to know about HRM, it also provides the foundation step toward a career specialising in HRM.
