Course Description: 

Leading People focuses on Strategic Human Resource Management (SHRM)- the combination of human resource management (HRM) and strategic direction of the organization- of both public and nonprofit organizations. This course will examine the theory and principles of SHRM as they relate to job analysis, recruitment and selection, compensation, benefits, training and career development, performance management, and labor-management relations. Learning to deal with daily SHRM challenges makes leaders and managers more effective and more valuable to the organization.
