Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management (HRM) is the study of the theories and techniques of managing people in the workplace to enable and enhance performance. HRM is concerned with attracting, selecting and managing people, investing effectively in learning and development at work and achieving successful employee relations. These are an integral part of the strategic and management concerns in work organisations of all kinds.

Whether the context is a multinational global enterprise or an NHS trust, HRM is evolving in, and shaping, an environment of great political, economic, social and technological change. The study of HRM involves diverse academic disciplines, combining social science explanations of individual, interpersonal and group behaviour. Strathclyde is widely acknowledged to offer the best teaching in HRM, in both Scotland and the UK.
