The development and implementation of sustainable staffing and remuneration strategies is fundamental to the competitiveness of organisations and a key role for human resource practitioners. An understanding of the complexities of developing and implementing staffing and remuneration strategies that are aligned with strategic priorities and with key elements of the human resource (HR) lifecycle include attracting and retaining talented staff. This unit focuses on the challenges faced by organisations in terms of staffing, remuneration, and retaining their workforce. The starting point of the unit examines the internal and external environment faced by today's organisations in terms of domestic and global competitiveness, technological change and industrial transition. Likewise, the unit examines the central elements of a strategic approach to sustainable staffing and remunerations that attempts to manage the workforce to effectively and efficiently deal with the complexities of modern organisational environments.

The aim of this unit is to provide students with analytical skills of how organisations design, implement, and review (update) staffing and remuneration process and systems in a complex, dynamic world. The unit also reinforces the acquisition of practical skills in the key HR processes of job analysis and design, recruitment tools and practices, and remuneration systems that are necessary to support the achievement of sustainable organisational outcomes.
