Economics of Human Resources BEA306

Hobart

Introduction

This unit provides you with the economic tools of analysis to answer important questions in the area of human resource management. With a specific focus on the management of human resources at the firm level, the unit provides a detailed but non-technical, analysis of important issues relevant to today's personnel managers. Topics include the role of education and training, hiring and turnover, compensation and worker incentives, measuring performance, promotions as a motivator, and team-based production. The analysis of the main issues will be reinforced and complemented with reference to a series of firm-level case studies.
