This course, which is the « continuation » of DTRH 1, has the same goals than this latter, that is to say, help you prepare the best you can the beginning of your professional life (and certainly not make you a human resource management expert). It therefore has as a vocation of conveying you everything a (future) salaried employee, who might have to supervise one day, has to know to succeed his professional integration within very complex organizations, which are also not always transparent regarding the way they manage their employees. This course therefore uppermost concerns you in a role you will all know (salaried employee), and eventually in a role only some of you will know (team manager).


Its goals are therefore to enable you to :

·         Understand the goals, the constraint and main tools of a factory Human resource policy, as much on the salary point of view, as that of the future engineer asked to supervise.

·         Know the mains elements of labour law that may be useful to an engineer, for personal use, or in his management duties, in order to avoid traps: execution of employment contract, payment supervision, disciplinary actions, performance appraisal, vocational training ...

·         Comprehend what is at stake, every management policy interests and limits in the present society.

·         Know the main tools used by companies in the context of human resource management (payment, evaluation, career's management, training)



Notice that this EC is a continuation of EC DTGRH1 (21h) that took place on semester 7 : the basis acquired during DTGRH1 are particularly important, and a student who would like to follow DTGRH2 without having done DTGRH1 would probably have difficulties understanding this course without having done the effort of making up the DTGRH1 course first.
