Human Resources Programs

Human resources (HR), finance, and administration form the backbone of the organization. They manage functions like recruitment, benefits, and payroll; do the accounting and produce reports on the organization’s financial health; and they are the go-to people who tell us how do manage our daily lives at work. Do not make the mistake, however, of viewing these areas as support functions. They frequently drive organizational strategies like talent management and financial management.

Just as organizations must respond to demographic and social changes that introduce new languages, cultures, values, and attitudes to the workplace, so must individuals. To understand and appreciate diversity, workers must develop an understanding of the ways in which each other views the world.This course identifies strategies to help students become aware of their own attitudes toward diversity; increase acceptance of diverse cultures, people, and ideas; and become an advocate for diversity within the workplace. Without diversity in the workplace, companies run the risk of becoming mono-cultural organizations that see things from a very limited perspective. The effects of this are far-reaching, right down to the company’s bottom line. To instill an appreciation of diversity within a company is a difficult task. It requires changing existing views and practices that until now have defined the workplace. However, diversity isn’t something that needs to be managed. Rather, diversity is an initiative that must permeate the company culture to be truly successful. This course explores the need for a holistic approach to workplace diversity, and the effects of incorporating a work/life initiative into business strategy.
