    Temitayo Oluokun Nigeria Having gone through the fundamentals of HRM, I found myself going over it again and again. Of particular interest to me is the Employee Motivation where the motivation theories were practically explained. In fact, before now,I had not heard anything about Elton Mayo's Management theory. I searched other sites to know more about this interesting motivation theory. I learnt that employees are motivated far more by relational factors like attention and friendship rather than by monetary rewards or environmental factors. Also, I understood the practical application of these theories at the workplace. Performance Appraisal is another interesting aspect that came with better enlightenment especially the MBO, Management by Objective which I had misunderstood before now in application. You cannot imagine how much I have learnt on the fundamentals of HRM in a few days. It is so amazing for me to have stumbled on this site. Thank you. 2015-07-22 15:07:44

  • Jesus Agbon
    Jesus Agbon Nigeria I think its important to understand these fundamentals i.e the 'why' behind human resource management. It's unfortunate that I work in a place that don't regard the welfare of it's employees. This is common in my country. 2015-07-21 10:07:08

    Carlota Charo Viana United Arab Emirates In this course, I am perfectly sure that I can boost my knowledge for the Human Resource Management, from the recruitment process to the whole cycle of the employment, from the implementation of the policies and procedures, leave calculation that the employee has achieved through the years of service, from sick leave entitlements, and a lot more. 2015-07-21 06:07:49
