An organization's workforce translates its business objectives into reality. This is why the management of the workforce is so critical to an organization's success. Workforce management is a set of processes and systems that enable the organization to meet its talent needs and develop employees. HR professionals use IT and data analysis tools to manage the workforce effectively. Technological developments provide HR professionals with many opportunities to reduce the amount of time required to perform their administrative and managerial tasks. This course covers two key areas: workforce management and technology management. You'll learn about components of workforce management – requirement analysis, planning, and employee development. You'll also explore the role of the human resource information system (HRIS) in gathering, analyzing, and reporting of workforce information, as well as reviewing data analytics and technology for collaboration and communication. The content in this course is based on the Body of Competency and Knowledge (BoCK), 2015 of Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). While the course helps learners to prepare for the SHRM-CP/SCP certification exams, it is equally useful for HR professionals who want to develop capabilities for improving their effectiveness in the workplace and advancing their careers.
This course is aimed at junior or senior level human resource professionals, HR managers, and all individuals preparing for the SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP certification examinations of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Compensation and benefits analysts, administrators, staffing managers, and recruiters will also have interest in this certification path. Courses in this curriculum are created keeping in mind certification as well as non-certification users of the content. While the curriculum helps learners to prepare for the SHRM certification exams, it is equally useful for HR professionals who want to develop capabilities for improving their effectiveness in the workplace and advancing their careers.
