Strategic Human Resources Management

In modern organizations, Human Resources (HR) cannot limit itself to merely an implementation role. Its approach to managing the function needs to expand in order to truly become a strategic partner in the business. This course will help you learn about the tools and techniques used in drafting and developing HR strategies. It will also equip you with the knowledge and the skills you need to translate such strategies into actions. Furthermore, the course will enable you to link the HR strategy to that of the organization and provide real value-adding HR solutions, presenting them in a language organizational management understands.
