HR is considered to be a support function because its work is to support the business in its entirety by sourcing, finalizing, hiring, and training candidates for the job. They are responsible for ensuring that they get the right candidate that fits the role as defined by the operations or other support functions.

One can say they are the people who work at the back of the stage. Sometimes their involvement seems invisible, however, once everything has been done the way it is supposed to be done, we tend to ignore their contribution at times. And, sometimes we question what they do.

This course will help you understand the functions that HR handles and manages at every stage of a person’s career. You will be able to appreciate their work and the challenges that come along the line.

Besides, you will also know that although they seem privileged, their work can be equally challenging as operations or other support functions such as Administration, IT, and related functions. Apart from all of these, you will get a clearer perspective about your roles, responsibilities, duties, etc. from an organizational culture viewpoint.

The HR for Non-HR Managers course is designed to upskill managers to give them the competence needed to effectively manage everyday human resource needs and challenges within their workforce.

The course examines the main human resource components within the employment lifecycle – from recruitment to retirement. Alongside this, the course looks at employment law (IR/ER) and common employee relations challenges that leaders may encounter.
