Human Resources Manager, Continuing Education Certificate

Human Resources (HR) Managers often serve as a link between management and employees by handling questions, interpreting and administering contracts and helping resolve work-related problems. They frequently advise managers on organizational policy matters such as equal employment opportunity and sexual harassment, and recommend needed changes. HR Managers also perform difficult staffing duties, including dealing with understaffing, refereeing disputes, firing employees, and administering disciplinary procedures. They generally plan, organize, direct, control or coordinate the personnel, training, or labor relations activities of an organization.
