One way or another, all employees are managed. But approaches to managing employees varying from employee-to-employee, job-to-job, manager-to-manager, organization-to-organization, and country-to-country. This course provides a foundation for developing your own approach to skillfully managing employees by illustrating alternative human resource management (HRM) strategies, introducing the importance of the legal context, and thinking about what motivates employees. This will then give you the factual and conceptual basis for developing specific, critical HRM skills in subsequent courses on hiring employees, managing performance, and rewarding employees. Don't know anything about HRM? That's OK! Leave this course with a new-found understanding of the range of options available for managing employees, a grasp of what makes workers tick, and the readiness to develop your own HRM skills.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PREPARING TO MANAGE HUMAN RESOURCES
I got knowledge that makes my future bright. Other useful skills I will learn include organisations' HRM reporting and communication.
It a Great time to learn from John w. Budd. Thanks sir.
Very well detailed and engaging.
P.S: Just a minor pet peeve with watching the video is, Prof. Budd's light tongue smacking while speaking, is distracting for me. Just a tiny personal issue.
I want to congratulate the teacher's hard work put in the content of this course to allow other people to learn in a practical manner, how to face different situations when managing human resources.
Great course for new managers. Provides framework for first decisions as a new leader. Good refresher for existing managers or individuals looking to transition into HR from a leadership role.
