People are arguably one of the key competitive factors of production for modern businesses. Machinery, land and financial resources are fairly static; but well motivated, engaged and productive staff are essential if a company is to flourish. As a consequence, all managers need to have a sound foundation in human resource management concepts and techniques.

This subject will present the basic functions of the HRM role and provide insight into how these need to be adapted to remain relevant in our ever changing and increasingly technologically-focused society. There is an option to do the linked assessments (assignments, tests and the exam) in order to get credits towards Chartall’s Bachelor of Business Administration Degree.
