Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

This paper examines the implications of the complex demographic changes occurring within the workforce for human resource managers. The aging population, an ethnically diverse workforce, migration, maternal employment, dual-earner families, and the growing concern about the employment experiences of members of the LBGT community and those living with disabilities makes the study of workforce diversity crucial to those specialising in HRM. We will examine the personal, Human Resource Management and organisational implications arising from workforce diversity and inclusion. We will analyse and critique Government and organisational policies promoting inclusive workforce practices and outcomes.The overriding aim of the paper is to emphasise the important role of HR managers in designing effective recruitment, selection, training and development policies and supportive organisational cultures to achieve inclusive workplaces.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

The structure and delivery of this paper is designed using flipped principles and is offered using FLEXI mode.

The flipped component involves one two-hour seminar-styled lecture supported by weekly readings and preparation activities. Attendance at these seminar-styled lectures is highly recommended. The classes combine information sharing (e.g., PowerPoint) and student-led discussions. Lecture notes will be available via Moodle before class. Please bring your own devices to access online resources during lectures.

The weekly readings and preparation activities provide important contextual background information to support the classes. Therefore, students are expected to do the preparation activities before class. The weekly preparation activities will be posted to Moodle no later than the Monday preceding each class. Class discussions and weekly preparation activities are designed to support your learning and prepare you for assessments.

The course readings for each week are linked in the appropriate Moodle block, and the full list of readings are available through the library Reading Lists, or by following the link below:
