This unit aims to introduce students to two important and closely related areas of human resource management practice (reward and performance management) and to ensure students understand relevant theory and practice in how these two inter-related HR practice areas directly influence individual, work group and organisational performance. The focus is on how organisations effectively shape employee behavior and strengthen performance and how this can lead to more effective organisational performance.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Explain the theory and concepts of shaping behaviour and strengthening performance this field of study;
2. Apply dimensions of the competencies and behaviours of an HR professional in shaping the behaviour and strengthening the performance of the workforce and curate evidence for a learning-portfolio and reflect critically on learning and development relevant to the student's professional life;
3. Explain the characteristics of effective practice for shaping the behaviour and strengthening the performance of the workforce and identify how this relates to employee wellbeing and effective individual and organisational performance;
4. Apply and advocate for elements of sound ethical principles and use an array of HR metrics in evidence-based decision-making associated with shaping the behaviour and strengthening the performance of the workforce;
5. Explain the factors driving organisational change, changes in the future of work and the workforce (including inclusion, ICT and internationalisation) that have implications for workforce management;
6. Explain industry research in shaping the behaviour and strengthening the performance of the workforce in a selected organisational context that enhances employee wellbeing and job performance; and
7. Demonstrate clearly in writing the results of research and analysis of organisational HRM capability in a dynamic organisational content.
