Course Description

In this post-Covid era, companies are facing huge challenges like the ‘great resignation' and 'quiet quitting'. Highly qualified and skilled HR professionals are essential for companies to maneuver these challenges and foster a healthy culture in their organizations. Successfully navigating complex HR laws and current regulations regarding compensation, employment law, recruitment, benefits, risk management and more requires significant expertise.
