Students who earn a degree in human resources will be able to provide help to employees, departments within a company, and also help maintain accurate health benefit records and other necessary documentation. Human resource departments are where employees go when they are having work-related issues, grievances, or need to know important information about healthcare and other workplace benefits.
Courses that students will have to complete include human resources administration, project management, business law and ethics, corporate policy, healthcare law, and worker’s compensation. Improving communication skills will also be discussed. There are many areas within a human resources department where students will be able to find work include recruitment, compensation and benefits, employee counseling, and conflict resolution. Those who work in human resource departments may also have to schedule company events, attend job fairs, and keep employees informed when company policies change.
