Do you have people reporting to you that need managing? Or perhaps you want to consider a career in human resources? Or freshen up your HR knowledge?This specialization provides a robust introduction to the key principles, policies, and practices of human resource management.
The specialization begins with a foundational course that considers alternative approaches to managing human resources, provides a background to the U.S. legal context in which employees are hired, fired, rewarded, and managed, and outlines the different reasons that people are motivated to work.
The remaining three courses tackle three core areas that all managers should understand: hiring employees, evaluating their performance, and rewarding them.
Throughout the courses, an accessible, scientific approach is embraced such that best practices and practical tips are informed by research, but presented in accessible, applied ways.
