Modernizing Human Resource Management

Start: Jan 15, 2024
End: Jan 26, 2024
Venue: Kampala - Uganda
Duration: 2 weeks
Statement of Need

The function of managing people in organizations formally commenced after the industrial revolution of the mid-18th century.  Ever since the function has undergone paradigm shifts. Personnel management gave way to HRM and the focus now is on strategic HRM and human capital management (HCM).  The implication of these shifts is changing the way we look at and manage employees. This programme focuses on modern people management practices.  It emphasizes a mindset change and shifts from traditional bureaucratic management to modern, proactive, more democratic human capital management orientation.  Value creation by employees and addition to the organization are emphasized in the delivery of all HRM roles.  For that to be realized the function has to transform itself and HRM practitioners to abandon outdated HR practices.

Who Attends

Senior HRM practitioners with responsibility for transforming the HR function and officers handling particular HRM portfolios who are keen to learn modern approaches of managing people in general and the HR functions in particular.

  • Explain impact of globalization on HRM;
