Introduction to Human Resource Management

This course is designed to offer students a real insight into the world of Human Resource Management (HRM) and its relevance in today’s business.  It is an ideal course for those who wish to know more about HRM before pursuing it as a means of longer-term study.  Equally, it is a valuable course for those who own a business with no HR support, or for those who have an element of HR within their job role, and wish to learn more about the subject.

In today’s fast-paced business environment, the management and leadership of organisations and its people is paramount to business success.  HRM plays an important strategic role in the development and overall management and deployment of an organisation’s human capital, leading in areas such as organisation and job design, recruitment and selection, the contractual and psychological relationship between employer and employee, training and development, health and wellbeing, employee reward and much more.  This course delves into those areas and gives you as a student a real taste of what life would be like as a HR professional.  It is also an excellent precursor to Glyndwr University’s BA (Hons) in Human Resource Management should you wish to continue your studies in this subject area.
