What is Strategic Human Resource Management?

This course is anchored in the confidence that individuals and their associated resources, namely human resources are at the centre of both organisational development and the realisation of sustainable strategy. This course underlines the added value for multiple stakeholders in aligning HR with Business so that designing strategic human resource systems becomes a strategic advantage in organisation’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) environment. This course stimulates students to analyse and develop strategic HR programmes for key functional aspects of the HR, among those as recruitment, reward management, employment relationships, well-being management, and talent management. It finally discusses the strategic roles of HR professionals and practitioners in the continuous formulation and implementation of strategic HR systems.
