Course Description

  • A Program about effective relationships in organisations, about human resource management and about understanding the behaviour of people at work, in order to make the best use of people, staff and employees, to the mutual benefit of all concerned.
  • This Program explains, balances and teaches about the two main approaches to HR; the ‘personnel management’ approach which is workforce-centred with most importance given to the support and correct treatment of the workforce; and the ‘human resource management’ approach which is resource-centred and it is management and organisational needs for human resources that are given priority. This detailed Program covers areas relating to management, behaviour, organisation within the field of the management of human resources.
  • The Program relates the study of human behaviour to that of management with an integrated view of theory and practice; it covers behavioural science and implications for management action; how performance may be improved through better understanding of human resources and effective management; and provides conceptual frameworks to better understand factors influencing patterns of behaviour in work organisations and the process of management.
