Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management is the management of an organization’s employees, or its human assets. It is responsible for the attraction, selection, training, motivation, assessment, and rewarding of employees, while also overseeing organizational leadership, and culture, and ensuring compliance with employment and labor laws. In a unionized environment, HR managers will also serve as the company’s primary negotiator and liaison with the employees’ union. HR seeks to answer the question, “How do we get the highest performance from our people?”  The minor in Human Resource Management can be taken by any student at Methodist University.
