Human Resource Management People are central to any business, which is why it is so important that they are managed carefully and responsibly. Human Resource Management (HRM) is a vital function of a business because motivated, happy employees result in a productive workforce, which in turn means businesses can grow and develop with their people. From debates around fair and transparent rewards for top management, the implementation of flexible working practices like zero hours contracts, to the recruitment and retention of talent within an organisation, there are many challenges for the HR Manager. Studying Human Resource Management will equip you with the necessary skills to effectively manage and develop people within organisations. Successful HR professionals have excellent communications skills. They are able to show empathy and use their problem solving skills to analyse situations and give honest, fair advice in order to overcome employment issues. We offer four-year placement and overseas study routes, where you have the opportunity to spend your third year on industrial placement or studying overseas, after which you will return to study for your final year. You can make a decision on whether to follow this route at the end of your first year of study.
