POLI 329 - Leadership in Human Resources

(3 credits)
This course focuses on selected topics in the study and practice of public personnel administration. It is designed as an overview of the central topics in the field, including recruitment and selection, employee compensation and motivation, personnel appraisal, workforce training and development, and labor-management relations. Current issues and new directions in public and nonprofit sector personnel management will also be explored and discussed. Students will develop an appreciation for the dynamic political environment as it influences human resources managers and the statutory and constitutional restrictions that distinguish public personnel management from its counterpart in the private sector.
