INTRODUCTION TO HR MANAGEMENT 37:533:301:04 Fall 2011 LCB Monday and Thursday Room 109 8:40 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Professor Bill Castellano, Ph.D. Room 216G Janice Levin Building Phone: 732-445-1051 E-mail: TA: Monika Mackow at Office Hours: By appointment _________________________________________________________________ Course Description Human resource management has become recognized as a critical function in the organization over the last 20 years. 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 the undergraduate HRM major and minor offered by the Human Resource Management Department. 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. From a broader perspective, this course will provide a more knowledgeable interpretation of the public policy issues all individuals face as citizens. Today, these issues include problems with health care and pension stability, card check authorization for unions, illegal immigrants in the workplace, gender and racial equity, executive pay, and safety in the workplace. Human resource management is a multidisciplinary profession. Throughout this course we will cover an array of topics drawing from psychology, sociology, management, and economics.
