Human resource managers play a key role in administering discipline in organizations. The course Human Resource Management - Discipline in Organizations begins by explaining what is meant by discipline and shows you how discipline is administered in organizations. You will learn why it is necessary for an organization to have disciplinary procedures and how you can have "just cause" for disciplining an employee.

Next, the course teaches you about different issues that are involved in handling difficult employees. This involves learning how to manage insubordination from your staff, and you will also learn how workplace bullying can be effectively dealt with.

Finally, you will learn how the need for discipline can be prevented by implementing human resource management processes and procedures that are inclusive and fair to all employees. These processes and procedures include effective recruitment and selection of employees, proper human resource planning, detailed performance appraisal methods, and fair compensation processes.

This course will be of great interest to human resource management professionals who would like to learn more about implementing effective disciplinary procedures and those who are interested in human resource management as a career.
