This unit examines the central elements of a strategic approach to HRM that attempts to manage the workforce to effectively deal with the complexities of modern organisational environments. The focus of this unit is on the challenges faced by organisations in terms of human resource planning, work design, recruitment and selection, retention, performance management, reward and career development.
