Introduction to Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management includes the vital tasks of recruiting, screening, interviewing, training, appraising, disciplining, rewarding, and developing the employee both for business and non-profit enterprises.

This introductory-level course draws on material from Harvard Business School professor D. Quinn Mills' book, Principles of Human Resource Management.

Performance Management

In its broadest sense, "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. A formal performance management system simply makes sure all those management tasks get done consistently across an organization. This introductory-level course considers these varied elements of performance management. Earn SHRM and HRCI credit while mastering these important elements of human resource management.
