Contemporary HRM

The module starts with a brief introduction to developing theory and current models of HRM, providing a framework for more detailed consideration of key operational areas: resourcing, development, performance management & reward, and the management of the employment relationship to minimise conflict and encourage employee engagement. Current issues such as work life balance, the management of diversity and International HRM are given particular focus.

HRM in an International Context

After a brief introduction to models of national culture, the focus of the module is the HR issues and practices of organisations operating across national boundaries with a multi-cultural workforce. It covers a range of key HRM areas: global manpower planning, recruitment & selection; international performance management, training and development; comparative employment regulation, employee voice and the management of conflict; the ethical considerations specific to international operations. These are explored through the use of examples and cases drawn from a range of international contexts and MNC practice. Students are encouraged to reflect on the approach to HRM in their own culture/country and contribute to the consideration of similarity and difference.
