Managing human resources in the public sector is a rewarding and challenging career. To be successful, human resources professionals in the public sector must understand the unique constraints and expectations of the public sector employment relationship. There are different expectations, different and often-competing goals, and additional laws that do not apply to HRM in the private sector.
Whether you work in a large city or a small township, a public school district or a state agency, knowing the fundamentals of public sector human resources management is essential.
This program is designed for human resources professionals in the public sector and those in the private sector who are considering a move to the public sector.
This weeklong class will provide you with in-depth information that you will be able to put to use as you manage the human resources in your public sector organization – even if you are an HR department of one.
You will also learn the core human resources management roles, the activities and responsibilities associated with them, and how to develop a strategic approach to HRM.
Knowing how to effectively work with elected officials and communicate in a way that fosters collaboration and results, is also essential for successfully working in the public sector.
Learn how to attract and retain top talent with a limited budget, enhance employee engagement, and methods for performance management and employee evaluation.
This program will provide you with a solid foundation in the fundamentals of human resources management in the public sector.
