Sharpen your fundamental HR skills to face today’s people issues.
Human resource issues impact every company in some way. That’s why it’s important to understand the fundamental issues surrounding HR today.

BiMS, the country’s leading HR professional organisation, is the first institute in country to launch the PGDHRM course back in 2004. Whether you are new to HR or if HR is one of many roles you fulfill at your organisation, PGDHRM covers the key HR topics you need to know.

People are the biggest asset of any organisation. However, managing employees in order to maximise them for the benefit of the organisation is still a challenge. Why? Human psychology is complicated to understand and behaviours is unpredictable. Each individual has their own characteristics and people behave differently in organisations than they do individually. Furthermore, in an organisation, conflicts of interest are inevitable either between managers and employees or among employees themselves.

Why is HRM an Important Subject?

The importance of human resource management becomes clear when considering the importance of human resources to the modern business – any business. Organisations of all shapes and sizes spanning public and private sectors alike are dependent on both their HR contingencies and the managers overseeing them. Until the day arrives when human workers are rendered comprehensively obsolete, there will always be strong demand for qualified and capable HR managers.

Studying HR management before taking up a professional positon can help ensure the strongest possible groundwork is laid for a fantastic career. Likewise, those already working in HR roles at lower or mid levels may find their prospects improve significantly by studying for a recognised qualification. BiMS PGDHRM is suitable for existing workers and newcomers alike, providing a uniquely flexible and accessible approach to further education.

3. Job Security

4. People Management

The people management skills picked up while working as an HR manager can be transferred to an endless variety of other roles/positions in supervision and management. Once again therefore, future career prospects are wide open.
