3. Human Resource Management
Organizations today, Fire Service included, face many challenges in the management of their human resources. Every week brings news media reports on organization downsizing, workforce diversity, shortages of skilled workers, and many other concerns. The purpose of this class is to provide current information developments in the field of HR management. Everyone who works in any organization will face HR issues and be confronted with HR management decisions with major consequences for every organization. The EDI program provides a learning environment, allowing students to verbally share HR issues, work through mock HR scenarios collectively, and learn preventative measures that could avoid future conflict and possible litigation in their Fire Service Organizations.
