For an organisation to function effectively and if high performance is to be achieved and conflict avoided, the relationship between management and employees or employee representatives needs to be harmonious and constructive. HR practitioners and managers need to understand the nature of the employment relationship and the issues that can arise in developing and maintaining positive employee relations. In an increasingly competitive and globalised world, where management and employee contractual relationships, needs, expectations and interests are constantly changing and evolving, understanding the nature of the employment relationship becomes essential. It is therefore crucial for line managers and those who are responsible for developing and implementing employee relations strategy and policy to have insight and knowledge of the area of employee relations.

The aim of this course is to develop students’ understanding of the wider external context that influences the employment relationship and priorities in the employee relations system. Students will recognise that good employee relations have implications beyond the employment contract. Aspects such as communication mechanisms and conflict management are important in building and maintaining positive employee experiences, effective relationships and higher levels of performance.

On successful completion of the course , students will have demonstrated a range of cognitive skills, in particular critical thinking, information handling and problem-solving abilities, as well as recognised professional capabilities. These include the ability to make evidence-based judgements on people-management issues generated through insight and evaluation of the employee relations specialist area.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Analyse how changes and developments in society, the work context and employment have influenced the employment relationship.
  2. Devise mechanisms of employee communication and consultation for different types of organisations.
  3. Apply negotiation skills to workplace disputes for effective conflict management approaches.
  4. Develop HR solutions for an organisation’s employee relations approach and practices in order to improve performance.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.
