Human resources managers are often promoted as being the most valuable asset an organisation possesses. This is because HR managers coordinate relations between employees and an organisation, ensuring the health, happiness, success, and satisfaction of all employees. The course begins by describing the role of a human resources manager and the responsibilities that the role requires. The benefits of using an HR consultant, rather than an internal human resources manager, will also be discussed. Following this introduction, the course delves into the human resources responsibilities for recruiting and hiring prospective employees, including interview techniques and training methods. Finally, the course discusses methods for giving feedback to employees and, conversely, how to receive feedback from employees. Furthermore, you will learn about the steps involved in terminating an employment contract, from understanding how to carry out a termination interview to explaining to the employee what their next steps should be. This course will be of great interest to learners interested in human resources as a career or to those who are currently in a role as an HR manager.
