Human Resource Management Course

Human Resource Management Course Image

The importance of human resource management as a support activity in business cannot be overemphasised, because the recruitment, selection, training and compensation of employees will affect all levels in the business. The issues that are important in terms of this activity will include the following: How effective are the human resource management procedures? What is the level of employee motivation? What can be done to ensure a quality work environment?

Modern businesses view human resources and their capabilities as the main contributor to successful strategy implementation and building a competitive advantage.

Therefore the purpose of this course is to not only to equip students in the human resource field with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively and efficiently contribute to the success of their employer, but also for general employees, supervisors and manager who want to improve their people management skills. Although this is an introductory course, we still strive to include comprehensive content on labour legislation, labour relations, recruitment, selection, induction, motivation, reward systems, training and development, staff retention and performance management. Furthermore the course will build students skills, through the use of practical assessments that prepare students for the workplace with the use of real work case studies and scenarios.
