Professional Certificate in Human Resources

  • 1st - 3rd July 2024
  • Virtual Learning

Course Overview

Today’s Human Resource department plays a far more prominent role in the management and oversight of organisations than was previously the case. This is because it has become generally accepted that an organisation’s workforce – its people – are its most valuable resource and an organisation cannot succeed without effectively managing this resource.

The HR professional therefore has one of the most important roles in the organisation, overseeing staff recruitment, training and development, shaping and defining culture, motivating the workforce and resolving disputes and grievances.

This course will utilise case studies, best practice examples and delegate experiences to provide participants with a thorough and holistic understanding of the HR function and the role of the modern HR professional. In addition to this the course also explores how the HR department has evolved, how it now fits into the rest of the organisational structure, and the challenges and responsibilities it now faces.
