This course is relevant to students interested in human resource management, business ownership or those who are likely to supervise or manage other people in the performance of their work. A finely assembled employee resource can provide a unique contribution to a firm’s competitive advantage. This course provides knowledge about enhancing the organisation’s talent by developing, encouraging, rewarding and if necessary, counselling employees so that the talent resource in the organisation continues to prosper. Such efforts assist the organisation to face the modern-day challenge of ensuring that the organisation is staffed with competent, committed and appropriately talented people to meet continually evolving strategic and operational business needs.
Talent management is a broad concept that refers to the processes that organisations use to attract, retain, motivate and develop its people, for now and for the future. In this course, students examine how organisations can design and use talent management initiatives to enhance performance by motivating, developing and rewarding people. Students will have the opportunity to improve their management knowledge as they examine how training, development and performance management are contributors to achieving the business strategy. Further, it is recognised that sometimes things go wrong with the performance or conduct of a person or people within the organisation. This course considers approaches to managing these issues if they arise.
