Big data and data analytics are changing how businesses run and managers do their jobs. In this course, you will explore how human resource managers use data to provide better support to the employees they manage and to contribute to the strategic practices of their organizations.

We will also review issues pertaining to data collection and employee privacy and confidentiality.

Employee Selection SHRM approved for PDCs: 3 Estimated Hours to Complete: 3-5 Access: 30 Days

In this course, students will learn about the process of selecting the best candidate from a large, diverse pool of high-quality applicants. Based on D. Quinn Mills' book, Principles of Human Resource Management, the course discusses how to conduct an effective job interview, asking questions that elicit relevant information, and avoiding questions that might be seen as discriminatory. Students will also consider how to discover more about a candidate through the use of reference checks, background checks, and testing.

Equal Employment Opportunity SHRM approved for PDCs: 2.5 Estimated Hours to Complete: 2-4 Access: 30 Days

In this course, students will learn about many of the major employment laws, Equal Opportunity issues, and the anti-discriminatory regulations employers must be aware of in hiring, promoting, and firing employees.

Introduction to Human Resource Management SHRM approved for PDCs: 0 (There are no SHRM credits offered for this course.) Estimated Hours to Complete: 3-5 Access: 30 Days

Human Resource Management includes the vital tasks of recruiting, screening, interviewing, training, appraising, disciplining, rewarding, and developing the employee—both for business and non-profit enterprises.

Since all managers (especially line managers) have HR responsibilities, it is important that they have an understanding of the key concepts of this increasingly important function, especially since many decisions they make about employees have possible legal ramifications.

The course draws on material from Harvard Business School professor D. Quinn Mills' book, Principles of Human Resource Management.

Performance Management SHRM approved for PDCs: 3 Estimated Hours to Complete: 3-5 Access: 30 Days

This course considers the different elements of performance management. In its broadest sense, "performance management" is what every good manager does every day: Makes sure employees know what they need to do to achieve the organization's goals, checks to make sure the employees are doing those things, praises employees for doing the right things, and uses constructive criticism when that is not the case. A formal performance management system simply makes sure all those management tasks get done consistently across an organization.

Talent Management and Career Development SHRM approved for PDCs: 2 Estimated Hours to Complete: 3-5 Access: 30 Days

Drawing on material from Harvard Business School professor D. Quinn Mills' book, Principles of Human Resource Management, this course covers the challenges and issues that organizations face in developing and retaining their employees.

Package Courses

Online HR CE Course Package SHRM approved for PDCs: 14 Estimated Hours to Complete: 21-25 Access: 180 days
