There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
This subject focuses on the strategic nature of human resource management (HRM) functions within various organisations and builds on general issues first raised in 21555 Human Resource Management. It develops an appreciation of critical HRM issues through an exploration of conceptual issues such as alternative ways of viewing the HRM field, how HRM should relate to changes in the organisational environment, and the relationships between organisation strategy and HRM functions. The underlying concept considered in this subject is how an organisation in a changing environment can best manage its human resources in such a way as to provide long-term benefits to the organisation.
