|Subject Overview:||The objective of this subject is to extend the student's |
ability to understand the strategic and operational roles of
human resource management (HRM) in agribusiness. Within
this broad objective, students will learn to distinguish between
the roles of the HRM specialist and the role of the agribusiness
line manager in performing operational and strategic roles. They
will be engaged in evaluating different models for performing
the HRM functions (job analysis, HR planning recruitment and
selection, induction and orientation, performance appraisal,
training and development, occupational health and safety
compliance and administration). They will be exposed to the
key features of the Australian industrial relations system and be
able to identify the sources and terms and conditions for
relevant employment categories in agribusiness. At the
completion of the subject, students will be better able to
appreciate the role of HR managers in organisational
improvement efforts with a focus on team development and
management of issues such as change, conflict and creativity.
