Human resource planning plays a critical role in supporting and achieving an organization's business strategy. Decisions to expand, merge or acquire another company, or to restructure or downsize, have a significant impact on the demand for and supply of employees. Moreover, the decision to pursue international growth presents a unique set of challenges for human resources (HR), including whether to use expatriate or local national employees. Forecasting employee demand, supply side concerns and succession management will be explored. Students will learn about environmental scanning, with respect to both external and internal business environments, explore the role of information management systems in HR planning and determine how to evaluate the effectiveness of HR activities. Please note that students who choose to take an online section of this course must write the final exam in person (either at the Humber North or Lakeshore campus, or (if located more than 100km from the campus) through an approved proctoring facility. Any costs associated with this are the sole responsibility of the student.
