People (human resources) are viewed by most experts as the most important asset of any organization.
Managing an organization’s people is often the most challenging and complex task required of a manager. It is also the responsibility, if executed well, that permits a person to rise to the senior level of management or prevents a manager from rising to the senior level if done poorly.
The objective of the course is to teach the basic principles of strategic human resource management—how an organization acquires, rewards, motivates, uses, and manages its people effectively. In addition to providing a basic legal and conceptual framework for managers, the course will introduce the manager to practices and techniques for evaluating performance, structuring teams, coaching and mentoring people, and performing the wide range of other people related duties of a manager in today’s increasingly complex workplace.
