This unit has been discontinued.


This unit will be taught subject to the availability of staff.


This unit provides 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.
