The effective and efficient operation of business is human resource-intensive. Strategies used to attract, motivate, manage and retain the right people are challenges facing all business managers. This unit introduces you to how these challenges can be met in practice. This includes functions such as recruitment, training, performance management and teamwork that are underpinned by fairness and respect, health and safety, and equity and diversity. These are introduced and discussed using business examples and applied activities.
