Employment Relations and Employee Engagement (B866)

This module explores the choices organisations make about employment relations strategies and the associated impacts on employee engagement. It provides an understanding of different employment relations perspectives, theories and debates as well as the national and international contexts of employment relations. Throughout the module the roles of employee participation and voice as crucial processes underlying employee engagement are critically examined. Other areas covered include managing diversity, communication, change management, and the management of conflict associated with grievance, discipline and dismissal.
