MGMT 443 HRM Professional Seminar Part Two: Performance Management (3)

The purpose of this course is to give students the skills and knowledge they need to enhance the contribution of employees to the performance and effectiveness of the organization. Students will learn technical and organizational aspects of performance planning, goal setting, performance and feedback, compensation and reward systems, incentive systems, high performance work organizational change, and the like. This course is normally taken in the second semester of the senior year. It builds on information introduced in MGMT 341 (Human Resources Management) and moves beyond survey-level material to more specialized knowledge and skill. The course is taken concurrently with MGMT 444 (HRM Practicum, Part Two) and is typically taken after students have completed MGMT 441 (HRM Proseminar, Part One) and MGMT 442 (HRM Practicum, Part One). These courses together constitute the core of the HRM Option for Management majors.
