Why Attend?

This course combines two of eight modules of the Advanced Certificate in Human Resource Management which are Total Rewards and Human Capital Analytics.

Total Rewards encompasses direct and indirect remuneration approaches that employers use to attract, recognize, and retain workers. HR demonstrates value by designing and administering systems and programs (e.g., base pay, benefits, incentive pay, leave, perquisites, retirement) that support recruitment and retention efforts. This module outlines a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to designing, implementing, administering, and maintaining a compensation system. 

Human Capital Analytics (sometime called Predictive Analytics) is fast becoming the means by which HR earns its seat at the decision-making table. Evidence-based HR starts with a clear and objective understanding of the relationship between data, information and knowledge followed by identifying, prioritizing and communicating the information which is most impactful in organizational decision making. This module explores how to gather and analyze pertinent HR metrics which have organization-wide implications including how to properly communicate those findings to drive better decision making.
