Human Resources Management and Development


HR is an essential component of a humanitarian organisation, from ensuring that staff with the right expertise are recruited, through ensuring staff are managed and recompensed in fair and efficient ways and that their welfare is monitored and supported. Poor people management can lead to low motivation, poor performance and the loss of good staff. Each of these has a cost for the organisation and a negative impact on the quality of projects and on accountability to communities and to donors. HR management and development is a three-day course that aims to develop the competencies needed to undertake HR for a humanitarian NGO in Sudan.

Course Aim

  • Undertake recruitment and selection for NGOs in Sudan;
  • Advise on posts required, organisational structure and budgeting for staff in humanitarian programmes.
