2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In a highly competitive and service-oriented economy, effectively managing human capital is essential for an organisation's success, and human resource management (HRM) is increasingly part of an organisation's strategy development and implementation. HRM is often a distinct unit within the organisation, but it is also increasingly integrated within the general management role. Thus, effective general managers must be able to identify, develop, and enhance the value of their employees. In this subject, you will explore key strategic HRM concepts that contribute to organisational effectiveness. You will be encouraged to critically examine how specific HR practices can be applied in the general management context.
