SHRI Academy’s PGDipHCM equips human resource practitioners with the necessary techniques for the professional discharge of their daily responsibilities. The course will benefit HR practitioners and non-HR managers and executives who are responsible for operational and intra-departmental manpower and people matters.
The programme curriculum has two key features that make it especially appealing to participants:
- The curriculum is practical-oriented in focus, approaching each topic from the human resource practitioner’s vantage-point and taking into account theoretical dimensions.
- The curriculum will bring participants to the forefront of regional and international human resource issues.
The course will serve as a ‘toolbox’ for HR practitioners and non-human resource managers/executives to use in their day-to-day HR functions.
