Your culminating project in this course will be to play the role of a member of human resources (HR) management through various facets of an organization. This will allow you to experience how the operations of HR management deal with various internal or external challenges and how it affects the many operations involved in hiring, training, and maintaining employees. You may choose your current workplace, another company, or make up a company. You must also come up with a challenge or risk presented to your company that HR management must deal with effectively.
