Recruitment: Finding the Best Candidates

In this module, we take a look at the macro-level strategic considerations in recruiting. We also will examine what makes an effective recruiter, along with where to find prospective employees. Current issues in recruiting are discussed, such as using social media and mobile technology. We then take time to focus on important legal and ethical issues in recruiting, and we wrap up this module with a look at recruitment from a global perspective.

Selection: Choosing the Best Candidates

In this module, we examine the selection process. Like the first two modules, we start from the big picture - what is selection and how do we tie it to strategic goals? We then explore the important legal considerations (U.S. laws) and other best practices in selection, such as avoiding biases and conducting background checks. Next we will see a number of different selection tools you can use to make a better hiring decisions. Lastly, we wrap up the third module by creating and presenting offers to candidates, and analyzing our hiring process for effectiveness.

À propos de la Spécialisation Gestion des ressources humaines : RH pour les responsables du personnel

Do you have people reporting to you that need managing? Or perhaps you want to consider a career in human resources? Or freshen up your HR knowledge? This specialization provides a robust introduction to the key principles, policies, and practices of human resource management. The specialization begins with a foundational course that considers alternative approaches to managing human resources, provides a background to the U.S. legal context in which employees are hired, fired, rewarded, and managed, and outlines the different reasons that people are motivated to work. The remaining three courses tackle three core areas that all managers should understand: hiring employees, evaluating their performance, and rewarding them. Throughout the courses, an accessible, scientific approach is embraced such that best practices and practical tips are informed by research, but presented in accessible, applied ways. Upon completing the specialization, learners will have a deeper understanding of what works in the workplace, including a toolkit of best practices for hiring, managing, and rewarding employees. The specialization will be valuable for managers and entrepreneurs taking on these responsibilities as well as anyone else interested in the fundamental principles of human resource management. The Capstone Project will provide an opportunity to apply this knowledge to a real situation, including your own organization or work unit if desired....
