Managing Workforce Flow

This course addresses how organizations acquire and deploy human assets, both internally and through outsourcing. Issues discussed include turnover, socialization, retention, and downsizing.

Developing Human Capital

Students in this course will learn how to assess and develop an organization’s human assets through training and development. The course examines both micro issues and macro issues, including the transformative nature of the “learning organization.”

Managing Rewards Systems I

This course focuses primarily on base pay systems and includes an introduction to individual performance management issues. (Managing Rewards Systems II continues the sequence by examining incentive pay systems and providing in-depth coverage of sales, executive, and advanced individual performance pay issues.)
