The programme is based on the HRINZ competencies (derived from global HR Competency research of Professor Dave Ulrich) and examines each practical HR area within the ‘HR Delivery’ competency.

Topics covered in the three day programme include:

  • Resourcing
  • Learning and Development
  • Performance Management
  • Change Management
  • Organisational Development
  • Legal Compliance and Employment Relations
  • Remuneration and Reward
  • Cultural Awareness and Diversity Management

A workbook containing information and exercises is provided. The programme is informed by current research and was fully revised and updated in 2017.

I will be sending a new employee to the next course. I think it is a confidence builder and also gives a good overview on WHY we do certain things, which in the early stages of a career are not always obvious. Director, Boost Productive People Ltd.

The course is a great introduction to the foundations of HR - it provides all of the information to give you the understanding of HR Knowledge.I've already found it useful within 2 days of being back in the office.I've recommended this to other HR staff to attend.
