Overview/Description
Acquiring, developing, motivating, and retaining people are at the core of the HR function. HR policies and practices must be structured in a way that enables people to fully apply their skills to the achievement of organizational goals. Every element of the HR function - strategy, organizational design, policies, and programs - needs to align with HR and business strategy. This course discusses the key elements of the HR function and how they connect with organizational strategy. 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 career.

Target Audience
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.
