  • Julia Ashton United Kingdom Good and thought-provoking introduction to the basics of the HRM role. 2015-01-14 16:01:40
  • Deandrea Coney Saoud United States of America Firstly , I never knew that the career title HRM was so detailed and the amount of responsibility that goes with the title. So little of what I've studied so far has been reflected with companies that I've worked for. I has always appeared to be about the bottom line and less on employee retention, training and development. Secondly, it amazes me how some HRM seem to just wing it with no set plan in place. I belive that HRM plays a very significant role in the market place as there choices can either enhance our destroy a company. Finally, this course i belive will give me more of the essential roles in this career choice. 2015-01-11 23:01:01
