Leerdoelen Upon completion of the course the student is able to:
1. Identify central theories within strategic human resource management.
2. Read a research article and explicate its practical connection to human resource management.
3. Provide definitions of central theories within strategic human resource management in a way that is relevant to the corporate/HRM context.
4. Apply these theories to basic problem solving situations within a human resource management context and report on it. For example, the student is able to read a business case relevant to HRM, and present a clearly-written argument for how to proceed with a planned program of action within a company context.
5. Recognize the components of rigorous research in human resource management.
Omschrijving This course is designed to help business economics students understand how to align the organization’s needs with the needs and abilities of current and prospective employees. Practicing strategic HRM means aligning human resource policies and practices with an organization’s strategic goals. This includes, but is not limited to the organization’s competencies, identity, and constraints. An organization must also align these policies and practices with factors that are external to it (e.g., the culture that the organization is operating) – factors that are becoming increasingly complex in the 21st century. The topics that will be covered in the class are strategic HRM, analysis and design of work systems, planning, recruitment, selection, training, performance management, rewarding, and the effects of culture. Although these topics and the related theories apply to any organization regardless of its operating context, the dimension of HRM specifically related to the organization’s economic climate will be emphasized in the literature, assignments, and lectures.
