This course introduces the student to the field of human resource management. Because of the wide nature of the topic and the limited time of the course, coverage is broad and emphasizes selecting, training, and evaluating personnel; wages, benefits, and bargaining units; motivation, morale, and human relations; and personnel problems in the workplace. The course emphasizes a general management perspective of HRM. Specifically, rather than assuming that the student wants to become an HR professional, we examine HRM from the perspective of a manager who wishes to effectively interact with and utilize human resources.
