FOUNDATIONS OF HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
Hello student, and welcome to this module in Foundations of Human Resource Management.
This course is suitable for aspiring HR managers and/or managers at the top and middle levels. It is also important to entrepreneurs because almost all successful businesses require at least one employee. As an entrepreneur or a business manager, you require an understanding of various concepts of human resource management.
In this Foundations of Human Resource Management unit, you also need to learn how HR managers carry out a job analysis. You must know how to analyze a job in order to ensure that it fits the organizational strategy and goals.
After analyzing the job, HR managers carry out recruitment and selection to bring in the best talents that match the needs and specifications of each job. We then go on to the step of placement and induction where you learn to bring your new hires on board.
Once the new employees have been integrated into the organization, HR managers will want to know whether they are good at what they are doing. If an employee is not performing as expected, then there must have been a mistake in his selection. That is why there must be a performance appraisal which measures employees’ performance against the company’s standards.
Training will then be proposed to help employees improve on areas where they are not performing well. They should also be rewarded for good performance.
But what happens several years later when the employee has accomplished his tasks and wishes to leave the organization? Good employers do not just dump their employees like sacks of rotten potatoes. That is why we will finally look at the process of employee mobility and separation.
