Course Description

Human Resource Management includes the vital tasks of recruiting, screening, interviewing, training, appraising, disciplining, rewarding, and developing the employee—both for business and non-profit enterprises. Since all managers have HR responsibilities, it is important that they have an understanding of the key concepts of this increasingly important function, especially since many decisions they make about employees have possible legal ramifications. This introductory-level course draws on material from Harvard Business School professor D. Quinn Mills' book, Principles of Human Resource Management.
