  • Maria Jimenez Canada This course provided good information on all aspects of Human Resources which can be adapted by large, medium and small businesses or companies. It was precisely to the point without being wordy or complicated. The explanation of the complete employment cycle from the start of an employees path -entering a company or position- to the termination process was simple yet common sense. In my opinion this course should be taken by all individuals no matter what level they enter a Human Resources department role, to be able to provide them with the insights of all various roles. 2014-12-17 01:12:29
