HRM team offers colleges and schools talks to support sixth form business students

HRM links up with colleges and schools

Date: 11/12/2014

The human resource management (HRM) team has developed a series of interactive class sessions for sixth form students to help them prepare for and do well in their BTEC business units. The series covers how diversity influences labour supply; the role of money as a motivator; employee involvement as a key to organisational success; and how managers can get the best performance from their employees.

The session on diversity explores how organisations are responding to the needs of an increasingly diverse workforce. Students examine the effect of technology, the changing nature of work and work-life balance pressures. They discuss the impact of these factors on shaping how people work in organisations today and how they might do so in the future.

The money as a motivator class explores how organisations can motivate their employees using financial and non-financial rewards. Linking theory with practice, students examine how organisations achieve high performance working, using current examples.

The employee involvement class session explores how organisations can involve their employees to raise their engagement and performance. Students examine the concept of employee involvement, strategic choices and the outcomes of these drawing upon practical workplace examples.

The session that addresses how managers can get the best performance from their employees explores different ways of measuring and managing employee performance with examples of workplace practice. Discussion on the strengths and weaknesses of the examples presented enables students to identify the most relevant methods in different organisational settings.
