Sharpen Your Fundamental HR Skills To Face Today’s HR 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 maximize them for the benefit of the organization 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 organization, conflicts of interest are inevitable either between managers and employees or among employees themselves.
Why study HRM?
If you are working in the HR field, you may have asked yourself these questions:
“What do my employees think about the way I manage them? “
“How do I choose the right person for our company?”
“What should I do when employees feel unhappy with their job?”
“How can I motivate my employees to work more effectively?”
“How can I train my employees to be better in their job?”
Apparently, HRM is complicated and requires people who work in this function to have both up-to-date knowledge and experience. Generations change over time and hence, HRM needs to evolve in response and adapt to changing practices as well as legislation.
As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. Studying HRM might be a good solution for the current challenges faced by those working in HR.
