BUS 311 - Human Resource Management

Credits: 3
Class Hours: 3
Focus on major employee challenges and concerns within a business. Policies, procedures, developing practices in employment hiring, training, staffing, and managing employees that companies must use in order to remain competitive within their industry. We focus our attention in this area because understanding how organizations can gain sustainable competitive advantage through people (human resources) is a challenging practice. The terms human resources, human capital, intellectual capital and talent imply that it is people who drive the performance of their organizations along with other resources such as money, materials, and information. A blend of behavioral science with traditional employee and labor relations philosophies are studied. Effective ways to deal with problems in communication, leadership, discipline, performance, and compensations are identified. 

Prerequisites: BUS 211 - Principles of Management; (3cr)
