Inhoud vak

The courses in this semester center around the international context of
the 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.
