HR Strategies
Compensation Principles and Practices

Understanding fundamentals of compensation approach at technology companies


The success of a company hinges on the quality of its workforce. But when it comes to making strategic business decisions, human resources—the part of an organization whose central function is to support its talent—isn't always positioned as a strategic partner. In this course, learn about the evolving role of human resources, and explore strategies and techniques that can help HR business partners become more effective in their roles, and help business leaders understand how to best partner with the HR function.

Michael McLernon of LinkedIn in Carpinteria discusses the function of HR within an organization, and the skills needed to be successful as an HR business partner, regardless of company size or structure.
