“I am totally satisfied with everything. The service is excellent; people are extremely nice and helpful and always answer questions quickly” Sheila B
The people resource is the most important part of an organisation – but this has not always been accepted and evident and is still not the norm in some businesses. Research and evidence has now shown some of the links between good management, motivation and treatment of staff and productivity and progressive organisations observe these principles – and reap the benefit.
HRM is a discipline which focuses on this element of the business mix and applies techniques and procedures and models to ensure that staff are developed and utilised to the maximum in a nurturing and conducive environment.
These are principles which can be applied not only by those in HR but throughout the management of the organisation to achieve a harmonious and productive operation.
Subjects covered in this course include; human resource planning, recruitment, selection and retention, management of performance and absence, discipline and grievance.
What are my options after the course?
Work in human resources. There are HR jobs right across the range of sectors as companies have come to realise the value of the resource and the techniques it employs. You would be able to apply for jobs such as HR Officer or Personnel Administrator or Human Resources Officer, and potentially earn £30,000+*pa.
Get a promotion. Those already working in this area might qualify for a promotion or a pay increase after completing this course.
Start your own business. You might even want to start a business of your own in, for example, recruitment or consultancy.
