Strategic Human Resource Management

This module aims to provide an insight into the relationship between human resource management and the business strategy of the hotel. Students will apply the knowledge to evaluate the functional roles of the human resource team in the hotel and examine specific areas of human resource management that operates strategically in a hotel. This includes understanding the various strategies on talent management and staff retention in the hotel.

Strategic Human Resource Management is a module selected from the Specialist Diploma in Hospitality Business Management. It enables participants to acquire new skills or deepen relevant skills without the need to pursue a full specialist diploma. As this is a stackable course, participants may choose to complete the remaining modules within the validity period, of 2 years, to be awarded the full Specialist Diploma qualification.
