With many firms now implementing full employee self service functions and subcontracting other traditional Human Resources roles and responsibilities, it appears that the HR role and its impact is diminishing. This course explores the emerging position of HR and the core competencies required to create a high-performance HR function that can add significant value to the bottom line and sustainability of their organizations as business partners and strategic contributors.  The primary objective of this course is to discuss and learn the emerging HR competencies that allow HR professionals meet the emerging needs of their organizations and make a difference in the lives of those whom they support. This course provides students with the opportunity to practice critical thinking, reflecting, collaborating, researching and learning through individual and group activities, discussions and seminars, and team projects.
