The courses in this semester centre around the international context of the international business environment. Period 4 specifically introduces you to the environment of developed economies and what this means for different disciplines, in this case HRM. The course will provide you with in-depth knowledge on the key HR practices that are used in contemporary organizations. Also, you will learn to examine these practices in their wider context. Attention is not only paid to how practices fit the organizational context, but special attention is paid to examining practices based on a global perspective by studying how practices differ across national contexts. The core practices examined include training and development, performance management, participation and communication, recruitment and selection, and compensation. Core models on how these HR practices relate to individual and organizational outcomes are discussed. In addition to learning about the various individual practices, you will gain insight in the interplay between practices to understand how bundles and systems of practices can be strategically used to enhance organizational goals. Current world wide trends and challenges, such as the war for talent, will be discussed and specific HR practices related to these challenges are examined. Factors in the national and international context are studied and used to explain the use and effectiveness of certain HR practices.
