Course overview

Human Resource Management (HRM) – The goal of this section is to introduce the whole area of human resource management skills and get your audience to take on the main concepts as quickly as possible. If you’ve had any involvement with Human Resource Management in the past 5 or 10 years, you’ve probably seen many changes that have tried to soften the gap between management and employees.

You’ll need to share that human resource skills were more aligned with management structures than meeting the needs of employees. Nowadays, you can confidently tell your audience that people think differently about human resource management and how it fits within a company. In particular, share that employees are the most critical asset of the organization.

Here is where you can discuss a definition of human resource management and highlight the significant functional areas that it covers.

Human resource planning skills – Spending time exploring human resource planning has many benefits too. Most of all, it builds awareness of this critical human resource management function. With that in mind, we’ve included content that you can deliver on some of the essential aspects of the human resources planning process.

Get your audience to start thinking in terms of using these skills within their work environments. This awareness will unveil possible gaps exist. Think about it this way: Your audience will never really build their skills unless they see the merits of where these skills can be applied. If they’re not “relevant,” then why should they learn about them.

During this critical section, we suggest that you share your perspectives on human resource planning within companies. Your experiences and reflections will make the content more meaningful to your audience. To put it simply, this form of storytelling will help your audience get the maximum benefit from the material presented.

Recruitment and selection skills – In this section, the goal of the content is to make sure your audience gets practical information on recruitment and selection skills. By using the content and providing insights from your own experiences, you will send positive signals to your audience and embed their learning. Keep in mind; you will need to offer a consistent training course while accepting that your audience may have different levels of experience, different backgrounds, and even different expectations on recruitment selection skills. And here’s a helpful another set of training material on recruitment and selection skills.

Understanding compensation – We all feel it, are curious about it, complain about it, and do our best to understand the whole world of compensation and benefits. The truth is that compensation and benefits are a natural fit for human resource management skills, and a company’s push to marry compensation systems with the business’s performance objectives. For best results, use the content to examine the various types of compensation and benefits used within companies. These include:

– Flat Rate Only
– Flat Rate Plus Payment By Results
– Merit Pay
– Profit/Gain Sharing
– Piecework

Another step that you can take to improve your audience’s knowledge base is to add company or industry-specific information on top of the examples provided. If available, these examples will make better sense to your audience and make it easier to explore this area with them. At the very least, it will also just make conversations more engaging and relevant.

Performance appraisal – You know that your audience has skills that they need to develop. That shows itself in the skills they currently have and where they need to be. From a practical standpoint, you should start by exploring the need for performance management skills can build up within a company. This need is pressing as a company can get bogged down with paperwork or worse, it can lead to an apathy where performance management initiatives get rushed. Explore the content provided with your audience, and we’ve included a clear performance appraisal procedure that paints a clear picture of what needs to apply. The exciting thing about sharing this procedure is that it gives you access to invaluable information from your audience, experiences, and challenges: consider it as an opportunity to discuss aspects of human resource management skills, but within a space that is comfortable to your audience.

Once you’ve explored this process, you can then use the content to discuss eight appraisal techniques. It’s vital to form a lasting impression with your audience by including a company and industry-specific examples. After all, most of us find information more appealing if it relates to how we spend our days.

Training and development skills – The key to this section is keeping everything simple. Make sure you’re keeping pace with where your audience’s capabilities are currently at and share that there’s always a lot of changes in the area of training and development skills. These changes emerge as organizations evolve, needs change, ways of working morph to meet customer preferences, technology improvements, globalization, and a constant push for innovation. How do we even try to accommodate these never-ending trends? Does this have such a profound impact on how we work? Have human resource management systems adapted or stayed the same? Or is this simply the gap between what people say and what they do?

Think about it this way: Your audience will be looking to go behind the scenes of training and development skills. They’ll expect discussions on what training is. They will also be interested in finding out about the training cycle, approaches, and what is a training needs analysis. Use the content to outline these crucial parts of training and development skills. Here’s helpful course material should you delve into how to perform a training needs analysis further.
