Business School Of The Year

The very nature of work is changing. The unprecedented scale and pace of change in the economy and world of work presents an urgent and critical need to ensure the ways we work, our workforces and workplace cultures are fit for today and drive performance and growth for the future.” (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development)

People are at the heart of any successful business. Ensuring their personal fulfilment and creating a happy workforce is so often the key to a successful, sustainable and prosperous business. This course is built around these beliefs and is aimed at those with their sights on a career in Human Resource Management (HRM) or a general management role. Your HRM tutors are from a mixture of academic and professional backgrounds.

A career in Human Resources can be an incredibly rewarding one, involving working on crucial organisational activities such as recruitment and selection, training and development, diversity, reward and employee relations. Getting these things right enables employees to reach their true potential in a positive working environment that will both retain talented staff and make the company an attractive one to work for.
