MGMT4550 - Sustainable Global Hum Res Mgt
Fall 2012

This course is an examination of the role of human resource management in efforts of sustainability for today's organizations. Addressing the challenges of social, economical and environmental issues is becoming essential to business practices and how we do business around the world. Role of human resource systems is critical to the achievement of these goals. Emphasis will be placed on the strategic role HR has in developing and implementing a sustainable strategy and in measuring specific sustainable goals. We focus on what organizations must do to attract and maintain their valuable employees while creating a sustainable workforce on a global basis. The use of experiential exercises, outside readings, internet tools, lectures on non-textbook material, and various movie clips with a HR and sustainability interest will be utilized as a basis for the class. While this course examines human resouces and sustainability from a global perspective, we will limit our focus on certain parts of the world due to time constraints of the length of the class.
