Human Resources | Ashton College
If you enjoy working with people, can exercise sound judgment and are diplomatic and detail-oriented, you already have the trademark attributes of a successful human resources management (HR) professional.
HR professionals are responsible for a company’s recruitment strategy by screening, interviewing and selecting candidates who will positively contribute to the organization, both financially and personally.
In addition to human resources planning, HR professionals manage the overall quality and cohesiveness of company culture, including employee and labour relations. They also implement policies, programs and procedures regarding collective bargaining, training and development, occupation classification and pay and benefits administration.
Graduates of our Human Resources Management Diploma program will have a strong foundation in all areas of human resources management. The program prepares them for a wide variety of employment opportunities. After graduating, they may work as human resources administrators, recruitment officers, labour relations officers, training coordinators, health and safety specialists and employee benefits administrators.
