GPM413 Motivation and engagement (8)

 The aim of the subject is to provide an appreciation and understanding of the motivation and engagement of staff through the lens of contemporary HR practices. Students are expected to reflect on their own experience and their organisation's practices across a range of key issues. “Policy is generally regarded as a blunt instrument, yet it is often utilized primarily to mitigate risk rather than to equitably encourage and support desired behaviours”. This subject will explore this proposition in the policing context utilising comparative analyses and case studies.
