Fundamentals of HRM
Human resources management (HRM) is one of the most vital aspects of an organisation, regardless of the organisation's size. This course enables participants to conduct research to identify an HR-related issue, review the issue, and document the scope of the review. Using different sources of HR data and information, participants are familiarised with the HR policies and procedures of their own organisation/s, and are able to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of these procedures, and to consider the legislation, regulations and standards that are applicable. A section of the course also covers the legal obligations and ethical practices relevant to HRM. This course is ideal for those who are entering or interested in the HR field.
With this course, we cover the skills required to work in the industrial relations (IR) arena and methods of implementing appropriate IR policies and procedures in an organisation. The knowledge and personal skills required to represent an organisation or employer whilst dealing with industrial relations matters in the workplace are discussed in detail. Participants learn how to communicate effectively to implement IR policies and procedures, assist in minimising IR conflict, and further develop industrial relations between employees and employers. Completion of the course enhances participants' interpersonal and communication skills, opening opportunities for further self-development and career progression.
Managing Personal Effectiveness in the Workplace
HR practitioners need skills in planning, research, analysis, implementation, monitoring, administration, and evaluation to allow them to effectively manage projects. This course emphasises programs designed to improve individual effectiveness. It covers researching and analysing issues that affect personal effectiveness, and planning, implementing and evaluating programs to enhance personal effectiveness.
All employees who are eager to be more productive and wish to contribute significantly in the workplace will benefit from this course.
Recruiting, Selecting and Inducting Staff
This course covers the planning and actions required to ensure that an organisation has the optimal number of staff, with the right combination and level of skills. The course deals with developing job descriptions and selection criteria, staff recruitment, selection and employment, followed by providing induction and orientation. We provide an overview of how recruitment and selection procedures and practices can complement other systems, and discuss how legislation and ethical principles influence the entire process of obtaining the best people for the position. The course is designed specifically for people who have some basic knowledge of HR functions and want to move to the next level.
Integral to the role of managers, supervisors, and team leaders is the need to ensure that the activities, behaviours, efforts and energy of staff are aligned with the strategies and goals of the organisation. This course focuses on enabling HR practitioners to support the Performance Management System (PMS) across an organisation. It describes and explains the outcomes, skills and knowledge required by HR practitioners to assist in the effective design, implementation and operation of PMS, thus facilitating employee performance. Course participants learn how to review the performance management infrastructure, promote a PMS and collate performance management data. This course is best suited to those with strong interpersonal skills and a desire to assist their colleagues in improving performance and achieving an organisation's goals.
Every employer has a duty and responsibility, so far as is reasonably practicable, to provide a safe workplace. That responsibility is now shared between employers and those staff in control of workplaces (for example, team-leaders, supervisors, managers). In this course, we provide a concise background on the OHS responsibilities of supervisors and managers. The main focus of the course is the implementation of appropriate OHS policies, procedures and programs to comply with relevant legislative obligations. The course is suitable for those aspiring to move to the next level of leadership, whilst making the workplace safer.
