What is Human Resource Management? Human Resource Management is the process of acquiring, training, appraising, and compensating employees, in addition to attending to their labor relations, health and safety, and fairness concerns. The Society of Human Resources (SHRM) has categorized these HR functional areas of knowledge in four domains: people, organization, workplace, and strategy. In part II of the HR series, we will explore people. Topics include talent acquisition and recruiting, employee engagement, learning and development, and total rewards. This is the second course in a series of four courses to earn the Strategic Human Resource Management Certificate. Textbook required.
