Human Resource Management in Context (B864)

In this module you will examine how HR policies and practices operate within multiple tiers and manifestations of economic, political and social context - at macro (societal and international) and micro (organisational) levels. In addition to developing analytical and practical skills in this specific domain, the module breaks new ground by incorporating resourcing and talent management as extended examples of HR practice and to illustrate how an intelligent understanding and reading of context by skilled HR professionals can help contribute to more informed choices.
