The aim of this unit is to enable students to appreciate and apply principles of
effective Human Resource Management (HRM). People are the lifeblood of any
organisation and being able to attract, recruit and retain talented staff is at the core of
all HRM activity. This unit will explore the tools and techniques used in HRM to
maximise the employee contribution and how to use HR methods to gain competitive
advantage. Students will explore the importance of training and development in
building and extending the skills base of the organisation and ensuring it is relevant to
the ever-changing business environment. Students will also consider the growing
importance of becoming a flexible organisation with an equally flexible labour force,
and become familiar with techniques of job design and with different reward systems.
The unit investigates the importance of good employee relations and the ways in
which employers engage with their staff and possibly with trade unions. Students will
gain an understanding of the law governing HRM processes as well as the best
practices which enable an employer to become an ‘employer of choice’ in their labour
market.
