Overview The overall objective of this course is to provide you with a realistic, relevant, and thorough examination of the role of Human Resource Management in today’s organizations. Areas of discussion will include the HR function’s roles in the recruitment, selection & placement processes, training, development, compensation & benefits systems, equal employment & diversity issues, labor relations, and global HR issues. We will explore these same issues from the perspective of a line manager where appropriate. Emphasis will be placed upon the examination of these issues through case studies, exercises and additional research. Our textbook will serve as the basis of class discussions, our course pack as the basis of case and exercise in-class work, and therefore, it is important that you read each assignment before coming to class. Please bring the course pack to each class that has a CP assignment. I encourage you to read some business newspapers and magazines, and to speak up in class with examples you have read or examples from your job. Please remember that it is your responsibility to ask questions regarding materials you do not understand! Specific Course Objectives -- This course is designed to enable you to: • Have a general understanding of HRM and current issues; • Develop problem-solving skills and decision-making skills in HRM through the use of cases, exercises, videos, and speakers. • Develop knowledge about how task groups function; • Understand the profession of HR and its contribution to the strategic endeavors of organizations.
