This module is designed to enable you to explore the context, theory and application of Human Resource Management (HRM) within the working environment. Increasing amounts of evidence from organisations indicate that line and business managers are being asked to take on work that was originally the province of the personnel specialist.
This trend has developed in parallel to the emergence of the HRM approach to managing people. In response to this, the module will ask you to think about the way you manage people in the areas of resourcing, reward, development and relations, and the policy and practices that your organisation currently uses. Emphasis is placed on taking a critical view of procedures and practices, whilst being able to suggest alternatives. You will also be provided with the opportunity to critically analyse HRM theory in its current form and consider its emergence from other disciplines.
