The learning content develops broad and deep knowledge in a select number of topical human resource issues and links these to a real-world context. As such the unit provides students with the essential preparatory knowledge and skills to build an intellectual foundation for the suite of subsequent elective units in human resource management and industrial relations available in the program.
