Program Details

Learn more about Champlain's 100% online human resource management graduate certificate, designed for working professionals.

Champlain's online human resource management courses encompass the top skills needed by today's HR professionals.

To gain a foundation for the Human Resource certificate, students take a macro-view of the field and examine the role of an HR department as a critical strategic business partner within the organization. Students integrate concepts and current workplace issues, including using new technologies in the field; the need for a broader understanding of business and culture; and how to build and support agile teams that work effectively.

Diversity is different from inclusion and organizations often miss the real opportunity to successfully move to a culture of inclusion. Students will look at organization development theory and change models to address diversity as organizational change, thus leading to inclusive policies, practices and procedures in all dimensions of the organization. They will explore diversity as it relates to race/color/sex and will also include diversity as it relates to other facts such as appearance, generational beliefs, economic status and gender identity.

Companies are exploring human capital analytics for workforce reporting and to help make informed decisions about human resources. The continuum of value that analytics bring to an organization includes practices from basic data reporting to predictive analytics. Explore workforce reporting and both traditional and advanced decision-making analytic tools, especially predictive modeling, which make it possible for organizations to inform decision making for the future. Learn to make the business case for using advanced HR analytics.

After a review of those areas, students will use that foundation to develop a range of coaching tools. Learn to ask the right questions, provide applicable feedback, use a customized approach and help employees learn to independently grapple with problems and find solutions. Finally students will use coaching to deepen an individual's self-awareness to promote action and accountability.
