Preparing to Manage Human Resources

School: University of Minnesota (Carlson)

Platform: Coursera

Registration Link: REGISTER HERE

Start Date: March 5, 2018 (4 Weeks Long)

Workload: 4-5 Hours Per Week

Instructor: John W. Budd

Credentials: An expert in human resources and management, Budd has taught at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management for over 25 years, where he currently heads the Center for Human Resources and Labor Studies. He has authored a half dozen books in the field, including the popular student textbook Labor Relations: Striking a Balance, which went into its 5th edition in 2018. His research has also been published in many of the field’s leading journals, including Industrial and Labor Relations Review, Journal of Labor Research, and Personnel Review.

Graded: To earn a passing mark, students must complete all graded assignments.

Description: Often, management is treated as a cultural endeavor. However, the most successful companies build up a structure to reinforce that culture. Leaders may model the right behaviors, but it also takes incentives and coaching to reinforce them. In other words, the success or failure of culture is often tied to strategy. That’s where human resources comes into play. The HR team is responsible for executing strategy and monitoring its success, whether it be through hiring, training, or rewarding. In the end, human resources sets the bar and establishes the practices that create a fair environment and motivated workforce.

In this course, students will examine the foundational elements of human resources, such as complying with legal requirements and managing and rewarding performance. Taught through videos and case readings, the course illustrates the best human resources in practice so students can foster clear expectations and consistent performance.

Review: “Preparing to Manage Human Resources is an information rich module, and the content delivery by Professor John Budd was just brilliant. This was an enjoyable course but also an unexpected surprise. The information I gained from this module was more than I hoped for. I would recommend to other students that you allow a few more study hours than the recommended 4-5 hour per week, if you want to make the most out of this course. This is a five star course with out a doubt.” For additional reviews, click here.
