In this free course we have emphasised the importance of context for the skilful practice of human resource management. Your study has enabled you to gain an initial understanding of the following:
- the scope of HRM
- the meaning and nature of strategic HRM
- how HR strategies are related to business strategies
- how HR strategies can be informed by a knowledge of labour markets and product markets locally, nationally and internationally
- the dynamic nature of global competition and of social and technological trends and their significance for HRM practice.
These were the learning objectives set out at the beginning of the course.
