    Program Description

    Human Resource professionals handle the hiring and staffing of businesses, they institute employee compensation and benefits, and they help define the work processes within a company.. Human resource managers are the intermediaries between top executives and the rest of the company. A human resources department oversees every process that involves people, and people are the most valuable resource in any company. The importance that companies place on human resources is reflected in the salaries offered. The median income for a human resources professional in 2015 was $104,400 per year. The job growth in this field is at 9% per year, which is a fast rate of growth. What’s in this program? To prepare you for this vitally important role, and the certification exams you’ll need to pass, this program teaches you how to interview and select employees, and how to influence your human resources department to create strategic partnerships with individuals and other departments within your company. To accomplish this, we teach you powerful interpersonal communication skills, you’ll learn how to collaborate in problem solving, and we offer proven paths to help you steer your company to becoming a high-performance organization. The final part of this, the Human Resources Exam Prep program, is designed to provide a fun and engaging opportunity to prepare for the revised Professional in Human Resources (PHR) and Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification exams through HRCI. **NOTE: To sit for the PHR certification exam you must meet education and experience requirements.
