Do you know how motivation to work "works"? Have you ever encountered challenges with team tasks? Do you know how an application process looks like from the perspective of a company? Would you like to be a founder, but wonder how to select the best people for your startup? These and many more topics will be addressed in this class on Human Resource Management (HRM).

This course offers you a broad overview of the role of HRM from a strategy, organizational, and individual perspective. In fact, effective management of HR has become a competitive advantage. It involves employment planning, recruiting and selecting employees, training and compensating them, evaluating their performance, retention, and leadership.

The aim of this class is to provide you with the theoretical knowledge related to these aspects and offer you practically applicable tools to handle them. Because it has become more common for non-HR specialists to implement or plan HR initiatives, and because employees themselves have become responsible for services that werepreviouslyprovided by HR specialists like for instance scouting for training and development opportunities, the content of this class will be relevant for you, regardless of the functional area in which you will operate in the future.
