Overview

The management of people is essential in every organisation to maximise performance, wellbeing and success and with the reliance on technology and analytics, it’s more important than ever that we use data to assess and drive business decisions. This course will equip you with the skills to guide recruitment, retention and to manage a diverse workforce in the digital age.

You’ll learn recruitment techniques needed in an evolving digital landscape. You’ll explore performance management practices, conflict management, remuneration and how to use human resource metrics and analytics to make business decisions.

You’ll also learn to interpret the increasingly evolving legal practices associated with the management of people and how you can use this to efficiently and effectively manage the future workforce.

What’s changing in 2022

To enable accelerated delivery, our teaching year is split into three trimesters so you can complete more units in one year. There will be three entry points in 2022 when you can start studying, with trimester one starting in January.

Because of the close-knit environment that block learning offers, this course will be offered internally (on-campus) only.
