The Human Resources Executive Program aims at providing the HR Department with business and strategy information and with the necessary tools to play a central role in the creation of new opportunities for the company.
This course provides HR managers with a complete view across the company and a higher degree of planning over their future development. The course is intended for both HR specialists wishing to acquire a full understanding of the HR process function, and those who’d like to hold an HR position and already have experiences performing different roles.
Thinking and operational skills are developed in order to provide an analytical understanding of the current situation and define an efficient people strategy. Thanks to a suitable HR management, companies can increase the return on human capital investments.
Attending the Human Resources Executive Program means acquiring the skills to be a protagonist of change and a higher degree of awareness on the role and the contribution provided by the HR department in achieving the goals.
The program consists of six topic-based modules on People Management & HR Function, People Strategy and Digital HR, Talent Attraction, Acquisition e Onboarding, Learning & Development, Employee Performance & Total Workforce Management, New Ways of working.
