Human resource management is a particularly important field to study in South Africa due to the diverse make-up of our workforce. Human resource management skills are valuable in assisting business units to develop more enhanced relationships with their employees as well as in analysing jobs, to formulate job descriptions that will determine the most suitable candidates.


This course will develop your understanding of the best practices used to advise and assist line managers with the roles and activities of the human resource (HR) department. You will be able to assist management with HR activities such as administration of workforce planning, recruitment and selection of potential candidates, as well as developing an induction programme.
