“The hardest challenge being in HR is that sometimes you have to be a lawyer, the judge and the hangman.” Hassan Choughari


Human Resource Project Management is the practice of recruiting, hiring, deploying and managing an organization’s employees. If you are just starting out or moving up as a project manager, the Human Resources Project Management Certificate can help you become a more effective professional. You will learn to master the fundamentals of project management and leadership concepts and processes, process framework, integration, time, cost, scope, quality, risk management, procurement and stake holder management, and Interpersonal skills. It includes all aspects of overseeing and supervising business operations.

HR facts: The average pay raise is 4.5%, and 88% of businesses plan to give employees raises this year, 57% of organizations view employee retention as a problem, and 22% of new hires leave their jobs within 45 days of being hired. Reasons include poor performance and temperament issues, fully 46% of new hires fail and are let go from their jobs within 18 months of being hired. Only 11% of these are for lack of skill, with 89% for reasons of motivation and lack of ‘coachability’, new hires that undergo a structured on-boarding program are 58% more likely to be with the company after three years, the costs of employee turnover range from 30% to 150% of the employee’s salary, 78% of employees said they would remain longer with their employer if they saw a career path within the current organization.

Understanding the importance of this role, human resources management is the act of allocating resources to accomplish desired goals and objectives efficiently and effectively; it comprises planning, organizing, staffing, leading or directing, and controlling an organization (a group of one or more people or entities) or effort for the purpose of accomplishing a goal.

Meanwhile, before you can lead others, you must be able to grow and develop personally. This requires a solid foundation of self-knowledge and critical self-reflection. What motivates you, how you handle conflict resolution, and how do you pull your team towards success instead of pushing them.Why do you do the things that you do (ethic, morals, visions, missions) and is the culture with work productive, healthy and affective?

This course is a comprehensive study of Human Resource Management principals and body of knowledge. Students will learn the historical perspective of the profession, management concepts and strategic applications, workplace health and safety regulations and workforce planning. The program targets professionals seeking to obtain a Professional in Human Resources (PHR) or Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) certification.
