All organizations share a common theme: they have goals, and they need to accomplish these goals through people. All organizations need physical, financial, intangible, and human assets to succeed. They also need an organization-wide strategy, business-level strategy, and a functional strategy. One of the few areas of an organization that impacts all these assets and strategies is the Human Resources Department. Human Resource Management is the managing of human skills and talents to make sure they are used effectively and in alignment with an organization’s goals. In turn, the people in the organization ensure that assets are obtained and secured, and that strategies are executed. This course gives an overview of the Human Resources Management functions and processes.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Recall five competencies of an effective human resources manager
  • Choose the four roles of human resources
  • Define the four duties of human resource management
  • Recognize the eight human resource management processes
  • Identify how the legal environment impacts human resource management

All materials are included in this course.
