Human Resources Major
The evolving workplace and work force continually present employers with challenges — skills shortages, family considerations and diversity issues. Human capital is a strategic force in any organization’s success. To stay competitive in the global competition for talent, organizations rely on human resources managers to develop employees’ skills, increase productivity and build job satisfaction.
