Human Resource Management: Managing Employees for Competitive Advantage . Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall. ISBN-13: 978-0-13-152532-0 COURSE DESCRIPTION : While many of the tasks associated with human resource management are centered in the HR Department, all managers have HR responsibilities. This course will cover the broad range of topics associated with HR management from the perspective of the HR professional, the manager, and the employee. This course serves as the base course in both the undergraduate HRM major and minor. It will also serve to familiarize students who hope to become managers or team leaders during their careers with some of the issues they will have to deal with, such as staffing, motivating, and developing team members. COURSE OVERVIEW : Human resource management has become recognized as a key source of strategic competitive advantage for organizations. HRM is a core component of the effectiveness of any organization or business unit because it influences the availability and motivation of talent in the organization. How does HRM do this? By effectively planning for workforce needs and then recruiting, hiring, placing, socializing, training, developing, recognizing, rewarding, promoting, and managing the people who make positive things happen. Although many of the functions and tasks associated with human resources are associated with HR departments, all managers and executive leaders have responsibilities that involve some aspect of HR. Thus, understanding HR will make you more personally capable, both as an individual and as a manager. The goal of this class is to provide an introduction to the core ideas and practices in human resource management. We will cover business strategy, HR functions, and the competencies required for becoming a successful HR professional. We will also highlight the different paths to organizational and personal success as they relate to HR. Discussion, research, and experiential exercises focusing on the transfer of course material to “real-world” situations will be an integral part of the class. COURSE POLICIES
