Program Description

In a knowledge-based, globalized and open to change society, human resources are at the core of management as being the main factor of comparative sustainable advantage.

Only organisations that have managed to align their human resource policies with their business strategy, integrate personnel and technologies, attract and retain the best talent, develop the potential of employees, involve teams in objectives, create performance oriented cultures and ensure a high level of quality in the professional lives of staff will be able to succeed.

The answer to these challenges is a shared responsability of managers and human resources technicians, all levels of strategic decision and all of those that coordinate all levels of work teams. As a shared responsability, managing people is more than a staff activity, it is a set of complementary skills of all areas of management.
