General Information

Overview

Organisations are facing a crisis in productivity and global business competition which is threatening their very existence in the market. Coupled with this challenge is the demand that organisations deliver an increased quality of work life to employees and comply with an intricate and complex set of laws, regulations and court decisions. This unit provides you with an introduction to human resource management (HRM), and to frameworks and models that explain the core functions of HRM such as planning, recruitment, development, reward and motivating employees. In this unit, you will examine how human resources functions, strategies, and practices help an organisation to perform efficiently and effectively, and assist organisations to achieve a sustained competitive advantage. You will also examine the role of HRM in diverse organisations and different cultural contexts to understand what constitutes ethical human resource management.

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.
