Course Overview

The business climate is ever-evolving, global, and innovative, requiring organisations to use their resources effectively and powerfully. HR in the Public Sector Organisations must be effective, efficient, and nimble to fulfil their current and future needs to successfully satisfy the public interest and relevant stakeholders in the volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous environment we live in.

The most valuable resource for any organisation is its human resources. All the individuals who work for or contribute to the enterprise in some manner are considered to be human resources. These people may be employed (full-time), employed as independent contractors, freelancers, or engaged in another capacity. Human Resource Management (HRM) is the process of hiring individuals, providing them with the necessary training and compensation, creating policies pertaining to them, and creating retention plans. In other words, managing people to improve performance is called Human Resource Management. How well this is done influences corporate culture and employee engagement. Employee engagement increases productivity results in higher-quality work, and improves customer satisfaction.
