    Today’s HR professionals deal with many issues, but probably the biggest challenges facing HR Departments today are recruitment, retention & motivation, leadership development, and organizational culture.  Meeting these challenges requires a synergy that transcends the traditional approach where HR is expected to fix the problem all by itself.  All of these functions require line management support if organizations are to grow and accomplish their important work in a cost effective manner. 

    The HR Foundations: Understanding the Elements of Human Resource Management course was designed by IPMA-HR to illustrate the need and importance of managerial partnering with the HR staff in overseeing and managing the organizations most precious resource – its employees.  This course, designed specifically for line managers, explains and delineates the responsibilities and interrelationships for both line managers and HR staff in achieving organizational success
