Post Graduate Diploma in Strategic Human Resource Management - Eduqual, UK Human Resource Management Courses in Dubai It is widely recognized that people are an organization’s most valuable assets. However, in many organizations, people are also the most costly resource. Individual working patterns are changing as more people work from home, build portfolio careers, take sabbaticals, work flexible hours or are on short-term, fixed contracts. Organizations also face new challenges as the internet enables the smallest company to operate internationally and compete against multinationals. In addition, new technology such as mobile communication, social media, and outsourcing are changing how recruitment is carried out. For these reasons, companies invest in recruiting, HR training courses, developing and retaining the best people of the job. Thus organizations need experts with an understanding of human resource management and the skills to help them guide, support and manage this crucial business function. This human resource program uses current and classic theory and research to develop a critical understanding of both the theory and practice of human resource management (HRM).
