Course introduction

For most organisations, nothing can be more headache-inducing than human resources issues. It is said that the root cause of most issues in most organisations and small businesses are people issues; from unmotivated staff leading to inefficiency in the company to workplace conflicts.However, a lot of personnel issues can be avoided if time is invested up front establishing policies and practices that will prevent or reduce some people issues from arising. This is where human resource management comes in.

So what is human resource management and what do people who work in human resource management do? This course will teach you the basics of human resource management including how to plan, attract, recruit, develop and retain staff in your organisation. You will learn how human resource management focuses on managing a positive, employee-oriented and productive culture.
