About the course

Effective management of Human Resource (HR) is considered a distinguishing characteristic of successful organizations. In such organizations, the HR function has moved beyond its traditional role to occupy a strategic position. HR fulfills its new role by actively focusing itself in the organization’s direction. Value adding and innovative HR practices for building competencies and developing high commitment are found in these organizations. HR is accountable for tangible results both qualitatively and quantitatively. This approach ensures that the human capital is a source of sustainable competitive advantage.

We have been offering the programme on HRM for the last 14 years with good response from organizations in India and outside. The programme is specifically designed to examine the changing role of HR function in the present environment and expose the participants to current practices and research in the HRM domain.

The role of line managers in HRM is specifically emphasized in the programme. The programme will also be an opportunity for the participants to reinforce their understanding of HRM and explore ways of designing and implementing value adding HR interventions in their organizations.
