"I really enjoy the dynamic nature of industrial relations where key laws and concepts are changing to keep apace with new government regulation and social change." MIHAJLA GAVIN 4TH YEAR, STUDYING A MAJOR IN IR & HRM INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS AND HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Studying industrial relations and human resource management (IR & HRM) at Sydney gives you a comprehensive and well-rounded understanding of all aspects of employment relationships. You can further specialise in an area such as human resource management, strategic management, organisational behaviour, labour law, industrial relations policy or global employment relations. Every member of our academic sta is an active researcher who contributes to public policy debates, publishes in industry journals and attracts major research funding, so you'll be learning from the people who create the knowledge in this eld. IR & HRM examines people and organisations within the world of work. It focuses on understanding how people interact within the workplace and how workplaces operate. In an increasingly complex world, work and employment relationships are rapidly changing, so it is particularly important for all businesses to develop a sound understanding of the changes reshaping workplaces in Australia and beyond, and to develop the vision and skills necessary to respond to them. As a graduate with an IR & HRM major you'll be equipped for a career within human resources, change management, or public policy. For example, Dr Marian Baird's work on work-- life balance and the need for a exible workplace is currently contributing greatly to the political and social agenda. If you're a top-performing student you'll also have the opportunity to gain work experience as part of your degree within industry, giving your career prospects an extra boost.
