Course Description:

The most important asset of any company or organization is the employee. Productive and effective employees are very critical to any company outperforming its competitors. Is your organization or department at risk of dealing with the following issues: inappropriate employee behavior, debate on whether to outsource or not, sexual harassment, staff reduction, labor unions, globalization, corporate merger, budget reduction, computer technology, performance appraisal, pension and life after retirement, and management of conflict in the workplace? Many organizations’ human resource management departments traditionally focus only on recruiting and hiring – neglecting such critical aspects such as training and career development, human resource development, health, and safety in the workplace. This course takes an in-depth look at the ever-changing world of human resource management. This course also uses selected case studies to acquaint human resource managers with a range of new ideas, issues, methods, and strategies in human resource management. Its participatory nature allows participants from all over the world to share valuable experiences, concerns, and insights.
