Human resource management covers more ground than people might initially imagine. Some may define it as interactions between employer and employee in the period between which an employee is hired until they are terminated. While this is true, human resources management begins even before this, with the policies that are created by the institution and the laws that govern workplace relations. Human Resource Management is the process of working with people so that they and their organizations reach full potential even when change precipitates the need to acquire new skills, assume new responsibilities and form new relationships. This course is designed to give you an overview of the key elements of human resource management.

Communication with citizens is a central means by which democratic ideals are realized in county government. Responsibility for citizen communication goes far beyond just talk at commissioner meetings and includes listening, soliciting ideas, responding to complaints and sharing information through the spoken and written word. The demands and opportunities for communication with citizens are nearly endless. Which communication strategies are effective? Which promote good government? Which contribute to unnecessary conflict? Which help resolve conflict? Which maximize use of the commission’s resources, including time?
