Leadership Essentials: Understanding HR

Even if your organisation has a dedicated Human Resources (HR) Department or Section, it is important that you as a leader understand the fundamentals of HR processes so that you can use relevant HR policies and procedures appropriately and objectively and influence and contribute to those processes if and when required.

‘Leadership Essentials: Understanding HR’ provides an overview of why an understanding of HR is essential for leadership capability and includes ‘Top Tips’ on how understanding HR can help you become a better leader.

The Essentials leaflet is supported by three Spotlights that look at understanding HR in more detail to help you improve your leadership skills:

  • Recruitment / Onboarding
  • Exit Management
  • HR Procedures

Please note: You can only unlock Leadership Essentials and Spotlights if you are a member.
