What this paper is about

Edit What this paper is about Content

New Zealand managers must develop people management skills and knowledge for several basic reasons. Very importantly, they need to understand how to do so to influence employee behaviour and human capital, with the bigger aim of carrying out the organisation's strategy and achieving higher levels of performance. At the same time, it is important, for performance-related reasons, to know about how to manage employee well-being and organisational diversity. Likewise, managers need to know how to maintain organisational compliance with employment law, most particularly as it pertains to dismissal.

This is a people management course, with a strong focus on achieving higher organisational performance. Skills and knowledge learning in this course should be directly relevant and applicable to your workplace.
