Human Resources (HR) administration is vital to the success of every business and every employee. HR is responsible for ensuring compliance with regulations – but they are also responsible for keeping employees engaged and motivated to do good work. The ability to balance both equally is a skill that requires knowledge and practice.
Yet many start-ups, small businesses and 'accidental' HR managers (administrative assistants or office managers who find themselves doing HR as part of their duties) focus on compliance. While corporate policies and labor practices are important, they don’t drive the success of your business.
If you are a small business owner who wants a deeper understanding of HR, someone looking for a job in HR, or an administrative professional whose duties include HR, this course is for you. It provides a general introduction to the role and duties of HR, with a little insight into taking your HR responsibilities to the next level.
