HR management

“Recruiting and training people to develop as employees”

HR covers a wide range of interconnected activities, but essentially it is about generating performance through people. HR professionals recruit, train and develop employees, and look at how they get rewarded. They’re dealing with legal issues, helping to shape the culture of their organisations, and focusing on what keeps their colleagues productive and engaged. Every organisation is different and so is the way their HR function operates. From generalist roles to specialist positions, there are many different functions, depending on the job role and the organisation’s size and needs. As an apprentice, you may work in areas such as performance and reward, employee engagement, employee relations, organisation development, learning and talent development, recruitment and resourcing, and talent planning.
