Section Description: The ways in which people are hired, recognized, managed, and retained can enhance organizational performance and make or break any organization. Employee participation, policies, compensation, culture, and related workforce issues all impact the life cycle of an organization and its people. Understanding that people are an organization’s most valuable asset is a critical point of view especially in today’s increasingly globalized and competitive business environment. This course is about people in organizations, current trends and practices in human resource management and the impact people and policy decisions have on finance, culture, and success. Course content is derived mostly from contemporary theory, research, and practice in the human resources and management disciplines.
