This Program introduces, describes and explains the roles, activities and responsibilities of the human resource and personnel management function, its staff, officers and managers. It deals with the many different areas which come under the remit of HR/personnel management, and provides training on the important duties that HR/personnel management managers and staff must perform (including in industrial relations). The importance of modern, effective, trained HR/personnel managers, employees and departments has never been more important because they have the potential to positively effect the operations of an enterprise, avoid poor performance or low output by the workforce, reduce industrial action, and create a work environment which benefits both employees and the organization for which they work.
Human Resource (HR) and personnel management covers a wide and varied range of activities, affecting all aspects of an organisation and of course all of its personnel; men and women who are trained and knowledgeable in these matters will always be in demand and find employment and good positions in organisations. Additionally, anybody looking for promotion, or who has responsibility for work colleagues, or who is a manager of any kind, needs to have effective knowledge of how to handle personnel proficiently – and this Program provides that too.
This Program is also the pathway to higher and specialised or related studies in the HR/personnel field or in management generally.
