What is human resources management?
Human resource management covers a wide range of tasks, including administrative and legal aspects, talent development, recruitment, training, etc. These tasks concern both the establishment of a human resources policy and the operational implementation of this HR policy.
Talent managers must be able to propose an effective human resources management strategy to recruit new talent and retain existing employees.
The HR function is constantly evolving with the help of technological advances that enable performance gains. Data analysis and Big Data are used to evaluate and optimise recruitment processes and resource planning. In addition, web-based platforms have been used more and more in recent years for human resources management.

Testimonies of graduated
Thanks to the classes, I discovered a sensitivity to the human aspect of management and to the HR management in companies. The professionals talking about their experience inspired me a lot and I liked working on practical exercises. All the subjects that revolve around HR seemed really natural to me and in line with my personality.
I immediately realised that this was the field for me. At that time, I had no experience in the subject at all. The optional year allowed me to confirm this wish. I was really lucky to find my path so spontaneously.
Chloé Legay, HR officer at TF1
I work in a start-up called Climb, which currently has 50 employees. Our objective is to help individuals manage their personal finances.
When I left the recruitment firm, I left the commercial part to concentrate on the strategic part by working with the managers on building teams and processes. The experience in a recruitment agency is extremely formative because recruitment is very similar to sales, even if it is rarely perceived as such. You have to be able to sound out the expectations of the prospect, manager or candidate, and satisfy them.
Manon Abaziou, Talent acquisition specialist at Climb
I work on human resources development, in other words the implementation of forward-looking skills management. To do this, I work with all the departments to help them improve their performance. I also deal with internal and external recruitment. We have a very ambitious training plan of 40,000 hours.
