Overview/Description
HR plays a critical role in all aspects of risk management, including developing, implementing, and overseeing the execution of programs, practices, and policies that mitigate risk to support organizational strategies. HR professionals are central in collecting and disseminating risk information to help the organization become adept at mitigating and handling risk. In this course, you'll learn about core HR functions: organizational risk management, workplace safety and security, and crisis management. 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 careers.

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. 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.
