People And Culture



Last updated on January 10th, 2021 at 05:05 am

There is an increasing awareness across business thought leaders that people and culture hold the key to organisational success. In the context of major shifts in the workplace, including new business models demanding new skillsets, greater workforce instability, increased multiculturalism and a renewed focus on gender, the complexities of this business function have never been greater.

In this unit students will examine what inclusion and diversity means in the workplace, how to strengthen organisations through employees and how to manage organisational change. In particular, students will reflect upon their own experiences and current people management practices to critically evaluate their effectiveness in these areas. A focus upon the changing nature of the workforce will encourage students to think beyond what has always been done to how they need to adapt to the 21st century innovation economy.
