COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Provides overview of primary issues in managing an organization's human resources, including planning personnel needs, recruiting, hiring, developing and appraising employees; and discussion of current social, ethical, and legal issues. Two broad themes are emphasized throughout: 1) Application of HRM tools and concepts and 2) Consideration of current HRM-related events, issues and controversies.

REQUIRED TEXT:
Bernardin, H.J. (2003). Human Resource Management: An Experiential Approach, Irwin McGraw Hill, third edition.

ASSIGNMENTS: 1. Reading: Reading assignments are due on dates listed on course outline. In addition to chapters contained in the text, a number of supplemental articles will be assigned throughout the semester (most of these will be available through the internet while the remainder will be on reserve).

2. Participation: Much of the learning in this class will occur in role plays and exercises. As a result, regular attendance and active participation is essential. You will be held responsible for all lectures, discussion material, and announcements presented in class.

3. Case Analyses: You are asked to prepare one or more case analyses or similar exercises prior to most class sessions. There will be three graded analyses worth 20 points each for a total of 60 points. Note: Although you are required to type up and turn in only 3 analyses, you are to prepare a response to all the cases prior to class. Failure to analyze the cases will hurt your class participation grade.

These assignments are intended to help you prepare for class discussion and to give you practice in applying the concepts we discuss in class. Case analyses must be typed in memo format (we will discuss proper memo format) and are due on the dates listed on the course syllabus (in bold type). Late assignments will be reduced 50%. Assignments will not be accepted after one week beyond the due date.

4. Group Project: You will perform a variety of group exercises/case analyses. The majority will be prepared and discussed in class. However, each group will also prepare a written assignment and present it orally to the class. A detailed description of this assignment is attached to the syllabus.

5. Exams: There will be three exams. Exams cover the readings, experiential exercises, and lectures and will consist of multiple choice questions. Please plan in advance to take exams on the scheduled date. Make up exams will be offered only under extreme extenuating circumstances and will be administered during final exam week.
