This course introduces the student to the field of human resource management (HRM). 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.
