HUMAN RESOURCES TRAINING


Human Resource knowledge is the source for creating a healthy, profitable workplace. Good HR practices are required to create an environment where employees are committed to the business success and provide excellent customer service.
 
All managers are HR Managers; however, business owners and managers rarely receive formal Human Resources training. This can lead to frustration, wasted time and costly mistakes. Issues that are not addressed (or addressed poorly) fester, stagnate growth and interfere with achieving performance goals.
 
This HR training provides you with the tools and confidence to handle common workplace situations. From hiring the right people to paying them properly, dealing with performance issues and when necessary ending employment.  You will also learn how to implement a basic HR structure that will ensure you are legally compliant.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Successful hiring
  • Conducting Performance Reviews
  • Managing Attendance and Performance
  • Employment Legislation
  • Employee Handbook Policies
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Health and Safety Compliance
  • Respectful Terminations
  • Pay and benefits
  • Organizing Personnel Files
