No matter what our role is in an organization, we are all affected by human resources. We are also affected by how successful our organization is in competing in the global marketplace as well as how we can increase profits, have a high rate of success and be an employer of choice.
This 3 course Human Resource Management Suite includes Understanding the Human Resources Function, Talent and Performance Management, and High Performance Organization which targets the critical areas of an organization: First, we will discuss understanding human resources. This will help people without experience in human resources to understand the importance of this field. It will prepare both managers and business owners how to handle the basic human resource functions to ensure the best possible result. We will discuss topics such as the hiring process, how to locate quality employees in a competitive labor market, how to attract and retain top talent, employee rights and the legal side of the human resources.
The next critical area is talent and performance management. This area addresses the best practices in developing talent inside your organization. We’ll cover the effect of onboarding, performance management, learning & development, and employee engagement and retention. You will be prepared to address the issues around talent and performance management and to offer solutions, tactics and strategies to attract and retain key talent professionals.
Finally, whether your organization is production or service based, you would benefit from becoming a High-Performance Organization (HPO). Benefits include increased profits, a high rate of success, and being an employer of choice. An organization is better suited for long-term success if they build an initial foundation as a High-Performance Organization.
This course will provide you with the information needed to help your organization with its efforts to become a High-Performance Organization (HPO). We’ll discuss the four principles of a HPO: Egalitarianism and Engagement, Shared Information and Trust, Knowledge Development, and Performance Reward Linkage. You will learn how to link these principles with organizational activities to be a HPO. We’ll also discuss leadership and how the organization’s culture can help or hinder your efforts to become a HPO.
