Human Resource Management
Human Resource Management can be used as a study resource, for professional development, or to earn college credit by passing a DSST exam (multiple-choice examination). Each college sets its own credit-granting policies for the exam, so check with your college admissions office, test center, or academic adviser before taking the test.

Human resource management (HRM) is the practice of recruiting, hiring, deploying, and managing an organization’s employees. Human Resource departments typically create, implement, and oversee the policies that govern workers and the relationship of the organization with its employees. HRM views employees as an asset–human capital– to their business or organization and HRM’s goal is to make the most effective use of employees in the workplace.
This course covers the following content: an overview of the human resource management field; human resource planning, staffing, training and development; performance appraisals; compensation issues; safety and security issues; employment law; and labor relations.
Human Resource Management (HRM or HR)
Human Resource Management (HRM or HR) is the strategic approach to the effective management of people in a company or organization such that they help their business gain a competitive advantage. It is designed to maximize employee performance in service of an employer’s strategic objectives. Human resource management is primarily concerned with the management of people within organizations, focusing on policies and systems. HR departments are responsible for overseeing employee-benefits design, employee recruitment, training and development, performance appraisal, and reward management, such as managing pay and benefit systems. HR also concerns itself with organizational change and industrial relations, or the balancing of organizational practices with requirements arising from collective bargaining and governmental laws.*
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO STUDY WITH DSSTPREP?
The answer to this is entirely up to you. You may choose to go over one section of material over and over until you have filled the progress bar up to 100% for just that section and then move onto the next section. However, this can be a bit boring, so we recommend that you get to feeling comfortable with one section, answering the questions several times, and then study the next section. If you open several sessions at a time, the DSSTPrep program will mix and scramble the order of the questions.
DSSTPrep’s sessions of study are broken into manageable numbers of questions. If a section of material is large, we will have it presented in a couple of sessions, i.e., parts 1 & 2. This is done to keep you from becoming too fatigued when you sit down to study one section.
When you complete a section of questions, use the ‘repeat missed questions’ button and go back and answer those questions again. You are more likely to remember the answers the next time you study if you review those questions right away.
