Human Resource Management
Human resource management is the management of the people who work in an organization. They can be managers, employees, project officers, field workers, coordinators. Since the organization is run by these people, they are considered to be a “resource” – ‘a human resource.’ In the development sector, we use funds to manage a project, we also need to use these ‘human resources’ or the ‘people’ to manage the organization.
It is not enough just to have a dedicated team for an organization. It is fundamentally believed that unless the team is not properly managed, motivated and performed, the organization will not achieve its goal and objectives. This course is designed to provide knowledge and skills to civil society practitioners on the process of managing, motivating and making staff perform. This process involves setting up of systems, including management plans and policies. These systems fall under human resource management.
