A major part of most public administration positions is human resource management. Therefore, it is important that public administrators understand the components of human resource management and their effect on an organization. In this class, human resource management is defined in a very broad sense, touching on all the major components of human resource management in order to give an overall concept or paradigm. The components are: 1) planning the need for public servants, 2) attracting the right people to be public servants, 3) placing the public servants in well matched jobs, 4) assisting public servants with their career development, 5) maintaining high performance with public servants and 6) evaluating public servants.
