Course description, features and facilities
The Master of Human Resources and Employment Relations explores how the proper management of employees contributes towards organisational effectiveness, asking questions such as:
How do we find the right employees? How do we keep them? How do we motivate employees to maximise their performance? How do we assess employee performance?
In addition, HR&ER examines the organisation of work, management of employees, role of unions, development of co-operation and negotiation, and ways in which conflict can emerge and be managed.
