Objectives This module is primarily focused on human resource management within multinational companies providing a broad base to understand how companies address the challenges of managing globally. The module focuses on key challenges in staffing the multinational enterprise considering aspects such as recruitment and selection, training and development, compensation and performance management.

Learning outcomes 1. Subject specific knowledge and skills (i) To provide understanding of the relevant theoretical debates and issues effecting human resource management in the global context. (ii) To develop a critical and reflective understanding of the nature of international human resource management and competing models of management. (iii) To understand the preparation required to be an international manager and how multinational organizations can best manage international career moves. (iv) To examine the development and nature of human resource management as practice and concept in the global context, focusing on how multinational companies manage their human resources. 2. Cognitive abilities and non-subject specific skills (i) To present findings from case studies and group based discussion in a confident and competent manner. (ii) To be actively involved in structured and unstructured class debates and discussions. (iii) To demonstrate an ability to write a soundly argued and suitably referenced essay. 1

8 Module coordinator : Professor Paul Thompson Contact information: Room 849, Graham Hills Building Direct telephone: +44(0) Consultation times: to be advised Teaching Team : Professor Phil Taylor Contact information: Room 842, Graham Hills Building Direct telephone: +44(0) Consultation times: to be advised Pre-requisites: Exemptions: None required None available Rationale and aims The study of human resources and its management is too often undertaken without adequate contextualisation. That absence is particularly damaging in a more complex and volatile international environment. This module seeks to fill that gap through a focus on comparative political economy and the variety of business systems that frame and shape employment policies and practices at firm and state level. The primary empirical object of the module is the structures, strategies and practices of the transnational firm, and their consequences for employment relations. This is then linked to the now extensive debates about the character and scope of globalisation and global flows of goods and labour. Bringing these two themes together, the course will examine in detail theory and practices of global value chains and production networks with respect to labour issues. The consequences of these dynamics for policy making with respect to corporate governance and responsibility will provide an additional practical focus. Learning outcomes (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) To examine the development and nature transnational corporate activity and its implications for HR managers and other economic actors in international organisations To provide understanding of the relevant theoretical debates and issues effecting the business context of international human resource management. To develop a critical and reflective understanding of the nature of globalization and its implications for the management of human resources. To equip students with contextual knowledge that underpins policy debates and decisions on corporate governance and responsibility. To be able to read and interpret a range of secondary documentation To present findings from case studies and group based discussion in a confident and competent manner. 1

9 (vii) (viii) To be actively involved in structured and unstructured class debates and discussions.

17 HR919 Module Descriptor: Comparative Employment Relations This is a core class for students on: MSc International Human Resource Management 20 credits

18 Module Co-ordinator : Professor Paul Stewart Contact Information: Room 9.08, Graham Hills Building Direct telephone: +44(0) Consultation times: to be advised Pre-requisites: Exemptions: None required None available Aims of the module To examine current issues in the field of comparative employment relations including from a political economy perspective. To outline and examine comparative employment relations in the context of the international political economy together with the strategies and practices utilised by international firms. To analyse comparative employment relations from a range of social and institutional perspectives and from a range of distinct environments. Objectives One of ways to understand the development of employment relations is by grounding them in an international comparative context which in turn requires an understanding of three interrelated processes: the social and historical development of what is known as the political economy of contemporary international business organisation in its various contexts; the employment relationship itself and the conflicts that surround it including the mechanisms utilised by management and labour to negotiate or manage relationships that may or may not be conflictual; the nature of contemporary political economy for employment and employees more widely whether in terms of those considered to be outside the orbit of multinational firms or those on their margins impacted by the consequences of international business. Comparing employment relationships in a variety of international contexts will offer illustration of the ways in which these three interrelated processes. Teaching methods A flexible and interactive approach will be employed, combining lectures and studentled class discussions. Students should not expect a purely didactic approach to learning but must be willing to engage teamwork and contribute to discussion and debate in class. Class Discussion Most sessions will feature a lecture followed by a student-led class discussion. Small groups of students will be selected to work together to lead discussion and debate in the class centred on a problem related to either a class reading or a hypothetical but realistic scenario provided by the course tutor. 1

19 The presenting students will need to demonstrate critical thinking and engagement with other students. Critical thinking is a questioning approach based on logical thinking, hypothesizing, problem-solving, information processing and evaluation. In many instances thinking outside the box will be needed. To help with your reading and thinking, there are supplementary guides. The other students will need to be drawn into the discussion both to bounce off ideas and to generate other ideas by spiralling.
