Human Resources

In a human resources role, you’re responsible for maintaining an inclusive environment and improving the efficiency of your organization. This can be done by supporting areas such as employee training, recruitment, workplace ethics and labour relations. In these courses, you will develop leadership, teamwork, critical thinking and intercultural communication skills. You will identify how to execute new HR systems and policies effectively, and learn about individual and organizational behaviour. Not only will you study how to put strategies into effect, but you will understand why it’s valuable to an organization’s image and performance.
