Paper Description

Purpose Statement

Human resource management embraces a range of practices that almost all managers are involved in at some point. Moreover, poor HR decisions (e.g., inappropriate hiring) can result in an unmotivated staff with the wrong or inappropriate skills, abilities, and knowledge.

This paper equips students with useful skills they can use in developing good HR practices. It also provides them with ways to critically evaluate existing practices and recommend and implement changes. The strategic focus of the course also gives students a bird's eye view of how HR practices work synergistically to build/ develop human capital and/or modify employee behaviour, given the overall strategic context (e.g., product market characteristics, production system characteristics etc.).
