COURSE OVERVIEW

Whether you’re already an effective personnel manager, want to become one, or you simply want to improve your skills in those areas, then this is the course for you.

Contrary to popular belief, both the ability to manage and the ability to lead are learnable skills. However they hinge on the ability of the manager or leader to communicate effectively and be able to maximise the effect of the human resources at his or her disposal. Leading and managing people depends largely on building mutually beneficial relationships, and encouraging others to invest in and take ownership of situations and processes in order to benefit the organisation as a whole.

This fascinating course focuses on the knowledge and techniques you will need to become an effective Human Resources or Personnel Manager, and outlines the simple processes and procedures you need to put in place to get your “team” on side, the business running efficiently, and stay on the right side of the law. It also helps you to define your organisation’s goals and aspirations, and how to communicate them in order to engage and enthuse others so that they too want the same or similar outcomes. This is what leadership is all about, whether at a team or organisational level, and you will learn it here!

WHAT WILL I LEARN ON THE COURSE?

The course is exhaustive and comprehensive. It teaches you how to design, develop and implement an HR Strategy within your organisation, to understand how the Labour Market actually works, how to deal with Trade Union issues and how they operate in today's business environment, and the all-important practical implications of Health, Safety and Welfare legislation.

A separate unit deals with Contracts of Employment, Recruitment and Selection in detail. It explores the concepts and legalities of recruitment and selection, clearly explains applicable legislation (including the rights and obligations of both employees and employers) and how to manage employee relations. The unit also gives an insight into the “dark secrets” of Selection Interviewing. Grievance and Disciplinary Procedure and the implementation of a fair Dismissal process are given deservedly prominent emphasis, and have a Unit devoted entirely to them.

The final part of the course deals with Pay and Performance – how to appropriately remunerate and reward staff, award fringe benefits without incurring the wrath (and financial penalty) of Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, and how to properly conduct job evaluations in order to determine a “fair wage”.

All fascinating and enlightening subject matter, with which you will be familiar and knowledgeable by the time you complete this excellent Course.

COURSE MATERIALS

One of the key benefits of studying Business Management with My Distance Learning College is that we deliver the entire package of course materials in a single dispatch.

The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers breaks up and interrupts the learning process. It prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper ideas that need more thought and understanding.

What is working in human resources?

Working in human resources is working closely with employees and their welfare. This can include hiring new employees and ensuring they have everything they need to work at full potential.

Why did you decide to work in human resources?

After leaving school I went straight into employment, I was first working in customer service where I was naturally a ‘people person’. I tended to take care of my colleagues and sort out their problems if they had issues with customer’s etc. My manager noticed these skills I had and offered me a promotion to work in HR to be able to ‘look after’ employees officially.

What is involved in human resources on a day to day basis?

Working in Human resources requires interviewing and hiring new employees. Records are made of new and existing employees where those that work in HR have to keep up to date. Human resources are responsible for staff training and development and arranging training courses to ensure employees are up to date in knowledge and skills within their practice. Human resources are responsible for the full welfare of employees such as health and safety. They may also have to deal with complaints and at times deal with disciplinary.

What are the entry requirements for working in Human resources?

There is no specific entry requirement s to work in human resources. However, employers will look for a standard education such as five GCSE’s A*-C level, usually including maths and English and usually office experience. You would then need to be willing to work towards (or already have) a qualification in human resource management.

What can I expect to earn working in Human resources?

Human resources administrators can earn - £15,000 - £19,000 a year.

Starting salaries for human resources officers can earn £18,000 -£25,000 a year.

Human resource managers can earn £25,000 - £50, 000 a year
