Course Objectives In this course the role of industrial engineers in Human Resources Management (HRM) will be introduced. Upon successful completion of this course, you are expected to be able to analyze issues concerning HRM in the organization and design some sub systems needed for the successful HRM implementation. Industrial engineering point of view for HRM will be discussed and thought. Students are expected to perform industrial engineering techniques to develop necessary systems for effective and efficient Human Resources Management. They will be able to perform job analysis and develop job descriptions. Students will also develop analytical models for individual and corporate level performance management, wage and salary management, career planning, job evaluation etc.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students will be able to learn and understand theoretical background information for effective human resources management.
  • Students will be able to understand the models, methods and methodologies for developing human resources management system for organization.
  • Students will be able to apply the models, methods and methodologies and develop management systems for human resources
Course Content Introduction to human resources management, strategic human resources management system and its functions, job analysis, HRM planning and recruiting, training and developing employees, performance management, managing careers, job evaluation, pay bonus and incentive systems.
