HR professionals are expected to understand and practice human resource management aligned with organisational goals. This unit integrates theory and research to develop students' understanding of evidence-based human resource management and professional skills. Human resources development is widely recognised as a critical component in gaining a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Developing people's capabilities in diverse contexts is thus a vital contribution by HR professionals to the continuous improvement of the workforce. Besides, applying analytical processes to the organisation's human capital is critical to improving employee performance and enhancing employee retention. Thus, in this unit, we focus on four modules that will cover the following topics:
· Performance Management System
· Employee Remuneration System
· Human Resource Development (HRD)
· Human Resource Analytics
