The aim of this course is to enable students to appreciate and apply principles of effective Human Resource Management (HRM). People are the lifeblood of any organisation and being able to attract, recruit and retain talented staff is at the core of all HRM activity.

This course will explore the tools and techniques used in HRM to maximize the employee contribution and how to use HR methods to gain competitive advantage. Students will explore the importance of training and development in building and extending the skills base of the organisation and ensuring it is relevant to the ever-changing business environment.

Students will also consider the growing importance of becoming a flexible organisation with an equally flexible labour force, and become familiar with techniques of job design and with different reward systems. The course investigates the importance of good employee relations and the ways in which employers engage with their staff and possibly with trade unions.

Students will gain an understanding of the law governing HRM processes as well as the best practices which enable an employer to become an ‘employer of choice’ in their labour market.

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

  1. Explain the impact of the role of HRM in creating sustainable organisational performance and contributing to business success.
  2. Assess the contribution of HRM in recruiting and retaining talent and skills to achieve business objectives.
  3. Examine how external and internal factors can affect HRM decision making in relation to organisational development.
  4. Apply HRM practices in a work-related context for improving sustainable
    organisational performance.

This course is designed to be as accessible as possible. 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.
