Human Resource Management
Human Resource Management is concerned with acquisition and utilisation of the 'human resource' or people as employees and the nature of the employment relationship. This covers key processes such as: recruitment and selection; training and developing; rewarding and managing performance; and influencing employee behaviour, including securing cooperation and commitment, but also recognising and managing conflict at work. These are an integral part of the strategic and management concerns in work organisations of all kinds.
The Department of Human Resource Management is an accredited centre for teaching HRM, which means our postgraduate courses gives tudents graduate membership of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
