Human Resource Management (HRM) refers to the policies, practices, and systems that influence employees’ behaviour, attitudes, and performance. The discipline of HRM is a systematic study of these policies, practices, and systems, while maintaining a strategic perspective. The strategic approach concerns the integration of the HRM policies, practices, and systems with the strategic plans and strategic management of the organization. The course is organized according to the broad areas of HRM, including the human resource environment; acquiring, training, and developing workers; assessing performance and improving performance; compensating human resources; and meeting other HR goals.
