Human Resources Strategy
The strategic management of Human Resources underpins the fundamental condition that all business strategies must have as a key element: the human factor. Human Resources Management is a crucial strategic partner in the implementation of the strategy, success in achieving its objectives and the contribution of value to the business. The courses included in this module focus on developing the principles, policies and values that must underpin the company’s strategy from the perspective of People Management. Contents include:
• Foundations of Human Resources management.
• Human Resources Strategies.
• Ethics and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).
Decision-Making in Human Resources
In the world of Big Data and the Internet of Things, Human Resources Management involves decisions in relation to the organizational strategic objectives based on criteria of efficacy, efficiency and maximum certainty. We will gain insight into the main advanced decision-making tools with the aim of minimizing the risk in terms of the potential consequences of these decisions, as well as gaining a holistic vision of the implications that the decisions involve for the organization’s objectives. We will cover:
• Decision-making in Human Resources: financial decisions.
• Decision-making in Human Resources: data-based decisions.

When the development of the organization coincides with the development of the people within it, this is when the necessary strategic alignment has been achieved between Human Resources and the Organization (and vice versa). Therefore, Human Resources policies and action plans are key competences involved in responding to both of these needs for growth. We develop the skills required to implement the functions involved in Human Resources Management within a context of talent development and a constantly changing environment. We will study:
• Management of employee movements.
• Human Capital Development.
• Management of salary remuneration models.
• Employee branding.
Contextual Areas of Human Resources
Operating in a globalized market, organizations are required to deal with legal, economic and sociodemographic factors, among others.

We will gain insight into:
• Economics and demographics of the employment market.
• Employment regulations.
• Global management of work capital.
Human Capital Management acquires full significance when striving to achieve people’s effectiveness by organizing them and their organizational behaviour, which must by focused towards achieving results that contribute to the organization’s mission. We develop the crucial skills required by a Human Resources executive, to thereby achieve the maximum commitment of the personnel towards achieving the business goals. We will analyse:
• Leadership, Team Building and Coaching.
• Change management.
• Welfare, security and protection.
