Unit purpose and aim(s)

It is the role of the human resource department to get the right people, in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills and at the right price. At each stage, human resource management involves investing value into people, be it the recruitment and selection of the right candidate, through to identifying and developing their knowledge and skills and undertaking strategic activities such as workforce planning and developing employee engagement and reward strategies to add value to both employees and the organisation.

HR is more than just processes. This unit introduces you to contemporary approaches to managing people by analysing and challenging theories in relation to the practice of HR. This will enable you to manage a people strategy in a diverse range of organisations and occupations, breaking the stereotype and championing a value-added approach. 

This unit is assessed by a timed open book exam (before 2020 it was assessed by assignment).
