Take control of your career.

A fundamental part of the Human Resource (HR) Management role is concerned with the mobilisation of a workforce - taking responsibility for ensuring that the organisation is able to access the skills it needs at the time and in the places that it needs them to drive sustained organisation performance.

This involves attracting, retaining and, from time to time, managing the departure of staff from the organisation. Achieving this requires insight-driven strategic and operational activity.

You will be introduced to the strategic approaches that organisations take to anticipate and meet the talent needs of the organisation as well as techniques and practices that organisations use to resource the talent pool effectively.

You'll explore aspects of recruitment, selection, workforce planning, staff retention, succession planning, retirement, and dismissal processes. You'll learn how to optimise the management of these activities and which are the most effective in the context of diverse and distributed locations.

  • 92% of ICS Learn graduates end up working in HR.
