Certificate in Managing Human Resources

Build your career in Human Resource Management with a six-day certificate packed with practical content and proven concepts to help you become a well-rounded HR practitioner. 

In Human Resource Management, practitioners are expected to be both knowledgeable and capable to make recommendations that will positively impact the growth of their organization. How will changes in demographics affect your organization’s hiring practices, employee relations or performance management systems? Does your organization have appropriate policies against harassment? Would implementing a compensation plan with a range of incentives better support your organization’s business objectives?

The Certificate in Managing Human Resources offers you an understanding of the many aspects and trends in the HR field and how they can be used effectively within your organization.
