Short Duration Programme


Effective management of human capital is critical to success of most organizations. The connection between HRM function and the organization’s ability to achieve its strategic goals has been established beyond doubt. However, the role of HR Organization in leveraging this reality is more often than not impeded by lack of competent HR professionals. Managing organizational performance poses immense challenge to many HR leaders owing to poor HR talent.
Considering the projected growth of Indian economy reaching double digits, the country would need thousands of competent HR professionals to act as catalysts in enhancing growth across sectors in the coming years. With the small number of graduates from leading B Schools unable to meet the large requirement of quality HR professionals, XLRI has been exploring newer avenues and approaches to ramp up. It is against this backdrop that XLRI, arguably among the best HR Schools in Asia-Pacific region has decided to partner with SHRM India in this development journey to support capability building of HR professionals. Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) being the world’s largest HR membership organization devoted to human resource management perfectly complements the academic expertise of XLRI. With lectures imparted by eminent faculty of XLRI and Industry experts from India and abroad, this program will fill a huge void in the HR education needs in India.
The objective of the program is to deliver an integrated HR course content that will provide working professionals a comprehensive understanding of Human Resource Management and prepare them for HR Leadership roles in the global environment. The programme will also help the participants in their preparation for the global SHRM certification exams; SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP.
