This compulsory course is part of the Organization and Human Resources basic module together with the courses Business Economics and Organizational Design and Behavior. It is the third and last course in the temporal sequence of the module. The course takes place the second semester of the second year for the International Bachelor's degree in Management and Business Administration.
The course deals with the management of people as a basic resource within firms. After the Business Economic course, where an economic introduction to firms is explained, and the Organizational Design and Behavior course, where the grounds for a more in depth knowledge of organizational architecture and individual behavior are established, this Human Resource Management course aims to help the student better understand the strategic character of people as well as the areas or practices directly involved in human resource management.
The course starts with an introduction to the employment relationship to set up the theoretical framework of the course. Then the strategic nature of people is highlighted and the theoretical ideas to understand the contribution of people to value creation in organizations are explained. Next the processes of information gathering prior to any action in human resource management are described. These processes are job analysis and human resource planning. Unit 4 deals with the problems associated to recruitment and selection. Unit 5 analyzes employee separations as well as employee turnover. Unit 6 examines training and Unit 7 performance evaluation. We finish the course with three units where compensation-related issues are discussed.
The approach to these topics is made from a managerial perspective founded in economics, but also including relevant contributions from psychology and sociology. Therefore, the approach is multidisciplinary.
