HR Management Practices

The purpose of HR Management Practices is to provide the tools to manage the IT human resource lifecycle. This lifecycle begins with the decision to hire new employees and ends with how to manage departing employees. IT must recognize that that their human resources, when managed properly, can be their most valuable asset.

The HR Management Practices involve five steps:

  1. Making the case for recruitment.
  2. Finding the "right" employees.
  3. Hiring and onboarding.
  4. Employee management.
  5. Retention.

When you have completed the HR Management Practices program you will have:

  • An understanding of what additional hiring is required and why.
  • The steps to get through the hiring process, starting with the job descriptions, followed by guidelines for the interview process.
  • A defined process for onboarding new employees.
  • Templates for completing new employee contractual arrangements.
  • Policies and templates to help you manage employees throughout their employment at your enterprise.

HR Management Practices are centered on the hiring process and, therefore, this section should be revisited whenever you consider bringing new employees into the organization.
