The aim of this course is to provide students with the conceptual and prescriptive tools to enable them to understand, identify, diagnose and analyse the principal people management issues facing managers of organisations in the contemporary economy. The course confronts the complexities of managing people in organisations by examining different theoretical approaches to motivation, commitment, performance, conflict and performance. Following these frameworks the course confronts contemporary approaches to communication and participation, and key management issues of reward, training, team-working, equality and discrimination. Topical subjects such as work-life balance and family-friendly employment are also explored with emphasis to their applicability in the new or “knowledge” sectors of the economy.
