HR Administration Skills course has been developed to enrich the HR professional’s knowledge in the areas of organizational structures, organizational systems, HR reporting, legal documentation and employee policies. In addition, the course provides an extensive body of knowledge on the competencies required for successful HR administrators.
HR Administration Skills have always been thought to be generic and ambiguous, but in reality, there is a definitive skill set which needs to be practiced in order to excel in the domain of HR. If you have the set of skills that the recruiters are looking for then you can easily become the recruiter yourself.
HR departments are often under-funded and neglected to the extent that they simply play the part of HR and not actually indulge in any HR activities. This is because they lack the personnel with HR-specific skills and not place enough importance on their skill set.
HR administrators and oﬃcers are requested continuously to expand their existing knowledge and skill set. HR administrators often function as the first point of contact for employee inquiries and requests.
This course provides a ‘best practice’ approach to the critical administrative activities and on the practical application of significant HR administrative activities. The course leader will provide you with the insight, knowledge, and skills to manage potentially sensitive issues and situations with tact, discretion and confidence.
Gain an overall understanding of human resources as it relates to an organization’s goals and strategic objectives. You will examine the issues of human resources management and its various functions, activities, and processes.
This HR Administration Skills training will give you a broad range of skills, including understanding the principles of HR and advanced IT skills.
The HR Administration Skills training will give you a great foundation to take your career in any direction – be it in a significant HR role or moving into the specialist areas of employment law, payroll or training and development.
