In this course we will think about all the topics HR is responsible for. This means, we will not only talk about HR as an “administrative” function, but try to grasp what value HR can add to the “business”. We will also link every topic to the ledership skills and abilities of Managers. Lectures, classroom discussions, and exercises/cases will center around: Contemporary leadership discussions involving transactional vs. transformational leadership approaches on the basis of motivation theories, Fundamentals of Labor Relations (Workers Councils, Unions, Collective Agreements), Equality and Diversity, International HR, Discipline, Grievance and HR Planning, Personnel Development and Talent Management Programs, Recruitment and Selection, Performance Management (from objective setting to performance rating), Rewarding (Compensation & Benefits), including bonus and incentive scheme.
