Week 7 Summary

The end video, in which Jeroen explains what is learnt, in this session about the HRM function.
This video concludes the session on the HRM function. And in this session, you learned that the HRM function consists of a variety of actors, including line managers, HR specialists and employees. And the distribution of HRM activities across these actors is a strategic decision and depends, amongst others, on the value and the uniqueness of each individual HRM activity. Because so many actors are involved in HRM implementation processes the need for control in coordination is paramount. And to realize this, and make sure that different HRM actors, like line managers, employees and HR specialists work together effectively, control mechanisms are needed. And in this session you also learned that control mechanisms can be subdivided into formal and informal control mechanisms.
And it is precisely through the use of these control mechanisms that HRM activities will be executed effectively. And with this I would like to conclude this session and of course I want to wish you all the best with the remainder of this MOOC.

This is already the end of the session about HRM Function. In this video, Jeroen will summarize the session’s content.
