Course description

This course is concerned with the effective recruitment, selection, and assessment of employees. Recruitment strategies are evaluated and considered from the perspective of both the organisation and the individual. Selection techniques are discussed in relation to issues of job relevancy, reliability, validity, fairness, applicability and cost. Performance appraisal systems are also examined as one mechanism for establishing whether recruitment and selection procedures have been effective. Students will develop an understanding of the literature on personnel assessment and also personnel assessment skills.
