If you want to work in human resources or as a manager of any business team, you need effective human resource management skills. From designing a team, to effective recruitment, to ongoing people management, human resource management [HRM] practices are essential for running a team or a business. Despite this, many managers do not take the time to really study these practices. This can lead to serious problems in the future. This course is designed to make sure that won’t happen to you.

The course will give you a complete guide through the principles and practices used by HR professionals and managers regarding recruitment, selection, training, and employee motivation. The course will first introduce you to the seven main roles that HRM plays in business. You will then learn the main points in the recruitment process, including how to develop a job analysis, a job description, and job specifications.

The course then guides you through the key concepts involved in compensation planning, such as providing the right salary, holiday pay, health benefits, and retirement packages.

Now that you know how to hire the right employee, the course will show you how to keep them productive in the long term. You will first learn about how to design specific retention strategies with the company budget in mind. Next, the course introduces the steps involved in training an employee. You will learn about the goals of orientation, the benefits of in-house versus external training, and how to design an effective training program. You will then learn about the main points of employee motivation, so you can maintain an energetic team in the long term.
