More details

Employment is a life-changing activity in individuals' lives. People's jobs define their incomes, careers, benefits and even quality of life and work/life balance. Human Resource Management is the key function responsible for the management of employment. This programme exposes students to contemporary issues in HRM, adopting a practical approach to enhance employability.

In 2011, our HRM students worked with the London 2012 Olympics delivery authorities, playing a key role in the recruitment of the 70,000 volunteers needed to staff the Olympic Games events and supporting activities. Last year, students explored specific companies' graduate recruitment schemes and designed graduate recruitment and selection campaigns. This year, the focus was on Diversity and Inclusion practices. Tom Morrell of Approaches for Performance Excellence Ltd, Organisation Performance Specialists, who used to be a senior officer at the Metropolitan Police Service, provided students with a detailed case study insight on the complexities faced by the Metropolitan Police Service with regard to Diversity and Inclusion. Recent guest speakers also included HRM professionals from Sony Ericsson as well as the Historic Royal Palaces (which include Hampton Court, Kensington Palace, the Tower of London, and Kew Palace).
