Human Resource Management Certificate

Those running small businesses often cannot justify designating a full-time HR professional to manage employee relations, compensation, policy-making, performance management and employee appraisals. This suite of courses teaches you the basics of managing benefits and policies that support an effective staff. It also covers anti-discrimination regulations, key aspects of pay policies and avoiding traps in the employee selection process.

Courses included in the Human Resource Management Certificate:

  • Compensation and Benefits
    Understanding compensation practices and policies is crucial for any business owner, HR professional, or manager. Consider issues surrounding the key aspects of pay policy: legal requirements, pay equity within an organization, competitive pay within the relevant industry, how and when to grant raises, and different ways payment can be structured. 

  • Employee Selection
    Learn about the process of selecting the best candidate from a large, diverse pool of high-quality applicants. Discuss how to conduct an effective job interview, asking questions that elicit relevant information, and avoiding questions that might be seen as discriminatory. You will also consider how to discover more about a candidate through the use of reference checks, background checks, and testing. 

  • Performance Management
    Performance management is what every good manager does every day: makes sure employees know what they need to do to achieve the organization's goals, checks to make sure the employees are doing those things, praises employees for doing the right things, and uses constructive criticism when that is not the case. This course considers these varied elements of performance management.

  • Equal Employment Opportunity
    Equal Employment Opportunity is an important concept for HR managers, employees, and job applicants to understand. Learn about many of the major employment laws, Equal Opportunity issues, and the anti-discriminatory regulations employers must be aware of in hiring, promoting, and firing employees. 

  • Talent Management and Career Development
    Cover the challenges and issues that organizations face in developing and retaining their employees.

  • Introduction to Human Resource Management
    Human resource management includes the vital tasks of recruiting, screening, interviewing, training, appraising, disciplining, rewarding, and developing the employee. Since all managers have HR responsibilities, it is important to understand the key concepts of this increasingly important function, especially since many decisions they make about employees have possible legal ramifications. 

  • Data and Human Resource Management
    Big data and data analytics are changing how businesses run and managers do their jobs. Explore how HR managers use data to provide better support to the employees they manage and to contribute to the strategic practices of their organizations. Learn about different kinds of data and analyses, and consider how data collection and organization may factor into problem-solving processes. Review issues pertaining to data collection and employee privacy and confidentiality.
