WORKSHOP FOR HRM STUDENTS

 

Would-be personnel managers studying at the Hull Centre for Management Development spent a day networking with members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development this week.

 

Students taking a degree in Human Resource Management at the University of Lincoln in Hull discussed the latest human resource issues with representatives of the Humber branch of the CIPD at a workshop.

 

The purpose of the workshop was to bring students who are currently out on placement back into the university and give them an opportunity to network with professionals and students from other years,” said organiser Jane Thompson, a senior lecturer in HRM at the Hull Centre for Management Development.

 

“The Humber branch of the CIPD has been extremely supportive of our course over the years.”

 

Over 20 current students on the HRM degree attended the workshop, which was held at the university’s newly refurbished Derek Crothall Building on George Street.

 

BA (Hons) Human Resource Management at the University of Lincoln is a CIPD-accredited course. The CIPD is the professional body for those involved in the management and development of people.
