Human Resource Management (HRM) is the function within an organisation that focuses on managing people. The objective is having the right people in the right place at the right time. The HRM function deals with recruiting and selecting employees, appraising their performance, deciding what rewards are appropriate, providing suitable training and development opportunities, and providing mechanisms for reducing and avoiding conflicts. Managing people is challenging and the course assists with building a work environment where employees are more motivated.
In the Human Resource Management option at Year 3, students study specialist HR subjects in more detail including: Contemporary HRM; Organisational Behaviour and Employment Law.
