Spring teaching

You study how a strong workforce with relevant experience, skills and capabilities enables companies to remain competitive in industry, and examine why some companies are filling positions with people who do not have the right skills for the job.

You examine key questions, including how to:

  • develop employees’ capabilities
  • attract highly capable employees
  • retain highly capable employees
  • align individual employees with organisation strategies.
