Human Resources Management, like other professions, keep evolving as changes emerge in the circumstances of businesses that HR Management is established to support.

A case in point is the nomenclature “personnel management” in the traditional practices replaced by “human resource management”. Accompanying that change were the role and functions from a perception ofroadblock” which used to be held by much of the rest of the organization. Common perception was that Personnel Department of old and even the modified Human Resources Management Department was mostly focused on serving the needs of the Executive Office.

We should accept that some traditional tasks are still relevant and are not going away anytime soon. But today, even with the current Human Resources nomenclature remaining, Human Resources Management roles and functions are emerging in a new way.

These new roles and functions are what the training will address. The training will fully expose the participants to them. The HR function must transform itself to:

  • align with forward-thinking practices
  • become more adaptive
  • be resilient
  • be quick to change direction
  • be customer-centered.

The goal is to make HR Management an enabler in shaping the future talent and culture profile to support business growth.
