What will I learn?

Starting your first job in HR or taking on a role which requires you to manage staff can be a daunting prospect. This course aims to take some of the stress out of managing people by explaining the basics of HR management. The training is based on the use of practical examples and exercises which can be used in the workplace.

Delegates will learn about

* the fundamentals of the employee / employer relationship
