Abstract

The course is designed to provide students with foundational knowledge and skills in human resource management (HRM). The goal of this course is to expose the students to the purpose, main functions, policies, and practices of HRM in today’s organizations. The course is based on the HR wheel introduced by the Association for Talent Development (ATD, formerly American Society of Training and Development, USA), which includes the following main HRM functions: (a) Human resource planning, recruitment and selection, (d) training and development, (c) performance appraisal and feedback, (d) compensation, pay, and benefits, and (e) employee and labor relations. Students will also examine how managers at different levels (i.e., first-time managers, line managers, mid-level managers, top managers/executives) are involved in HRM and the expectations of organizational leadership to create and maintain the HRM function to enhance employee, group, and organizational performance. Students will also discuss innovations in HRM and future challenges for HRM in the global organizational context. The course combines lectures and interactive seminars to promote student critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The course assignments are based on current literature in HRM and include individual and group work.
