PPPA 8600 - Human Resource Management


(4 cr.) Managing human resources in an age of technology, economic disparity, and an aging workforce presents unique challenges and requires a foundational understanding of the philosophy, approaches, and systems of human resource (HR) management. Students in this course are provided with a survey of these elements, specific to managing individuals in government and nonprofit organizations. Students explore historical developments, personnel management practices and behaviors, and contemporary issues. They also examine functions of recruitment, classification, compensation, training, evaluation, and labor-management relations. Through examination of traditional literature and current resources, including shared experiences through peer discussions, students identify modern challenges and future trends in HR management and develop ideal systems and solutions to problems.
