What is Human Resources Management?
Human Resources, also commonly abbreviated as HR, are a wide term used to describe the functioning of an organisation’s workforce. In essence, it is about the people that make up the workplace – how they work, interact, what motivates them, how to keep a good balance between wellness and work output, what training they need and so forth.
Just like a machine, the whole entity cannot function properly if all the smaller components do not work together, so in order to ensure the success of a business or enterprise, attention must be given to all the parts involved. If workers at ground level are not happy or feel that they are being treated unfairly, this would directly affect the efficiency of the higher levels and could ultimately have a very negative impact on the business as a whole.
Therefore, no matter what job you wish to pursue or already perform, having knowledge about the principles that govern successful Human Resources Management and getting the right HR training and obtaining a Human Resources qualification would always be of great value and give you a certain advantage in the corporate world.
Why should I study Human Resources Management?
The increasingly demanding corporate world is fuelling the need for qualified Human Resources Managers. Businesses aim for maximum success and, in order to achieve this, they rely on skilled, efficient, reliable and motivated workers. It goes without saying that a manager should therefore be able to work with people because motivating them implies that you understand and appreciate them. You cannot get the best out of your workers when you don’t know how to treat them correctly, which makes HR Management an integral part of running a successful business.
Human Resources Management Courses
College SA offers the following Human Resources Courses:
Human Resources Management courses by the South African Institute of Management (SAIM)
In this HR Management course you will explore the relationship between the organisation and the individual in order to grasp the way in which end goals are achieved. Attention would be given to theories of motivation, as human interaction and people skills are central to successful HR Management. Aspects such a workforce planning, recruitment, job analysis, job description and job specification would also be covered, while skills like the decision-making process, organising, leadership and communication are developed throughout. Since these HR courses focus on Business Management in general, specific focus is also placed on Business Law principles, Economics and Marketing Management.
Human Resources Management courses by Strategic Investigations and Seminars (SIS)
College SA teamed up with Strategic Investigations and Seminars (SIS) to offer you courses within the field of Forensic Science and Investigation Studies that are very closely related to Human Resources in general. These Human Resources short courses offered by SIS are the perfect stepping stone towards a career in Forensic Science and Investigations, as they not only introduce students to the investigative world, but also prepare them for challenges within the social world we live in.
What else does Human Resources Management involve?
Another part of Human resources that goes hand in hand with the ability to manage the workforce is the process of constantly supplying a stream of skilled employees. In the modern working environment, people seldom start working at a certain company and then stay there until they retire. People tend to migrate between different spheres until they find a job that suits them best. For this reason, a big part of HR Management involves the recruitment of qualified and capable individuals to fill positions that open up. The basic nature of any organisation or business is to make a profit or be sustainable, and therefore one would expect that through HR processes only the most worthy candidates would be selected to secure its future success.
By enrolling for a Human Resources Management training program subsequently obtaining any Human Resources qualification, you would develop your ability to manage the workforce and ultimately make the correct decisions to strengthen your company’s position within the corporate sphere.
Since the ultimate purpose of HR is to ensure maximum output of a business by maintaining the wellness of employees, helping them grow and become more efficient is also an integral part of Human Resources Management.
The Human Resources Management Diploma and Certificate Courses that are available through the College SA Human Resources Management courses will teach students how to enhance the potential of employees by means of performance enhancing activities. These would include aspects such as development training, performance appraisal, reward systems, and so forth.
The importance of Human Resources Management
HR at its most basic level involves planning, organising, coordinating and analysing – skills that underline any secretarial function. Ultimately, these skills are important in each and every job. This function could be compared to the heart of a body that keeps everything else functioning: someone needs to delegate and monitor duties, organising the manner in which work should be done, regulate levels of motivations and productivity, coordinate different task to ensure that the end of the goal is achieved, analyse and implement strategies to increase the efficiency of a company or organisation, and determine the overall success by interpreting outputs at basic level. Whether this is at junior or senior Human Resources Management level, the skills are essentially the same. All the Human Resources Management courses at College SA are exciting and relevant to the modern working environment.
