  • Temitayo Oluokun
    Temitayo Oluokun Nigeria This course has given me an overview of the roles and functions of the Human Resource Manager. The topic on Employee Motivation and its practical application to the workplace was quite revealing and the Elton Mayo's Management theory was of particular interest because I have not heard anything about that theory before now.I got so fascinated about it that I searched other sites to have an in depth understanding about it and its application in an organization. Also, the topic on Performance Appraisal was quite enlightening. I understood for first time what Management by Objective meant and its implication on employee performance. I also learnt from an in depth study on MBO its implication on motivation. I have an interest in Human Resource Management and I intend taking a Diploma in HRM as well as other courses related to it. Thank you so much for the simplicity of explanation and for giving people like me an opportunity to sit in the confines of my office to take this course. I am so grateful. 2015-07-28 13:07:39
