授業の概要と目的（何を学ぶか）Outline and objectives
This course is intended to introduce students to the field of human resource management (HRM). Students learn theories and applications involved in effectively managing people in organizations.
Unlike many other fields in business and economics, policies and practices of HRM are influenced greatly by country-specific factors such as labor law, social customs, economic development stage and workforce structure. So, I will spend most time in explaining Japanese cases. But some common theories and international comparative perspectives are introduced as well.
More specifically, HRM II covers such topics as dismissal, job design, and labor-management relations. Furthermore, some current topics in HRM are covered, such as effects of aging and diminishing workforce, non-regular workers, diversity management, work/life balance and globalization.
Successful students will acquire basic knowledge of HRM in Japanese firms, as well as problem-solving and critical-thinking skills in the field of human resources and organizations, both of which are applicable to all types of organizations and jobs in which students will eventually work.

In case it is feasible to have face-to-face lectures in a real classroom, my lecture and the discussion among students will be the main method. I count on "Hoppii" to distribute course materials and occasionally ask students to submit written assignments. Those assignments will be returned to the students with my comments.

The wrap-up of the course and future directions
授業時間外の学習（準備学習・復習・宿題等）Work to be done outside of class (preparation, etc.)
Preparatory study and review time for this class are 2 hours each. Before each class, read through course materials and find places where you have questions. During and after the class, you should clarify all the questions, and submit occasional assignments diligently.
I do not use any textbooks which students need to purchase. Instead, I will use my own handouts and data sets. But just for your reference, many of my course materials are based on the followings.
・ Baron, James N. and David M. Kreps (1999) Strategic Human Resources. John Wiley & Sons, Inc. This is an excellent MBA-level textbook of HRM, whose methodology is blend of economics and organizational behavior.
・ Lazear, Edward P. (1998) Personnel Economics for Managers. John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
・ Lazear, Edward P. and Michael Gibbs (2015) Personnel Economics in Practice (3rd edition). Wiley. These two are readable textbooks of “personnel economics” by its pioneers.
・ Although contents written in English are limited, you could find useful information in the following site of the Japan Institute for Labor Policy and Training:
・ Some important Japanese laws are translated into English. See the following site:
The final grade will be based on writing assignments during the semester (80%). The participation in the class is counted as well (20%). I will not conduct an in-class final exam separately.
学生の意見等からの気づきChanges following student comments
I will encourage students to participate more actively in class.
学生が準備すべき機器他Equipment student needs to prepare
I regularly use Hoppii to upload course materials and to direct course assignments.
HRM I (Fall) and II (Spring) are taught in a sequential manner. So, it is recommended to take both courses in this order if that is possible. Some basic knowledge of economics and organizational behavior is preferred, but not required.
The instructor used to work for the Ministry of Labour of Japan in the 1980s as labor economists. Such knowledge and experiences will be used occasionally.
Among GBP subjects, the followings are closely related to this subject although they are not prerequisites: Introduction to Organizational Management, Introduction to Japanese Economy, Organizational Management I/II and Organizational Behavior I/II.
Upon threat level change
Please note that the teaching approach may vary according to which threat level we are at: at level 1, this course will be held on campus, though at level 2, it will be held online.
