Principles of Human Resource Management

Every business is made up of people, the human resources of the business. How effectively those human resources are managed will have a major impact on how successful the business becomes.

Indeed in many industries, the quality of the human resources, how effectively they work together and how well they are trained and developed, can be the major factor in maintaining the competitiveness and profitability of the business.

It follows then that the study of human resource management (HRM) is a vital part of the business and the ability to manage people effectively is a key skill requirement for the effective business manager. The process is a complex one.

Partly this complexity stems from the fact that one is dealing with people, with all the inevitable variation in skills, personalities, attitudes and behaviours which this implies. HRM is further complicated by the major changes we are experiencing in technologies, in patterns of trade and business and the need for businesses and their employees to respond quickly if they are to remain competitive.

The need for all managers to have competence in HRM is becoming inescapable. Increasingly as organisations become flatter, with fewer layers of management, line managers are playing an increasingly important role in the management of people.

This course is designed to help you understand these issues and begin to acquire some of the knowledge and skills required for effective management of people.

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
