Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 3
Administered by: School of Business (pre 2015)

People are the major asset of any organisation. Managing People provides students with a solid foundation for understanding and addressing core issues, perspectives and decision-making procedures relating to the management of people (Human Resources). A central aim is to provide a framework for designing, implementing and maintaining Human Resource Management (HRM) practices which are contemporary, relevant and capable of sustaining organisations in competitive environments including those in tropical regions. This is achieved by discussion and analysis of numerous theoretical and practical examples from Australia and the international business environment. Topics include planning, recruitment and selection, performance management, workplace health & safety, accountability and workplace diversity. A practical and relevant 'Hot Topic' relating to managing people in the tropics will be woven through the subject. This subject is a core requirement for the Management and Human Resource Management Major.

  • examine key HRM functions and practices and the associated issues and challenges;
  • apply theory and practices of HRM to managing people in organisations;
