Developing strategies to attract, retain and develop employees can give a business significant competitive advantage. This course will lead you through the basics of developing a human capital strategy. You’ll learn how to intentionally design your company’s values and culture, recruit and hire the right people, adapt your organizational structure as you scale, and build effective teams. You’ll also learn how to structure compensation, manage employee performance, and offer relevant professional development. This course is ideal for early stage entrepreneurs thinking about how to build and grow their teams in impact-driven companies.
