Human Resource Management

Human Resource Management


The Human Resource Management course at CTS College equips students with the contemporary skills to manage staff in alignment with the operational and strategic business goals of small and large enterprises in a diverse range of sectors. Specifically, students will acquire the competencies to draft a human resource plan for their workplace and execute the processes of recruitment, training, performance management, employee discipline and employee engagement processes with precision to align employee outcomes with organisational goals.

The net effect of employee and organisational alignment will enable businesses to make their intended impact in the turbulent business environment and bolster their market positions against competitors. With the macro environment of businesses radically changing due to the myriad of external forces such as the Covid-19 and new competition, students will be able to apply trending concepts such as Virtual Human Resource Management strategies to manage human resources in an innovative and dynamic manner.
