Whether the HR Manager has access to staff positioned to provide assistance or not, students will need to know the essential competencies that impact their role, from management tactics, position analysis, training, and more.
  2. Hiring For Success: Interviewing sounds easy enough: you arrange for a conversation between you and potential candidates, and then select the best person for a particular position. But what if you could refine the process in such a way that you were confident that you are selecting the right person? How do you separate the good from the great, when they have similar work experience and strengths to offer? This course will give you the skills and tools to hire successful candidates.
  3. Giving Effective Feedback: Feedback is an essential element for our growth and development. This course is designed to help workplace leaders learn how to provide feedback any time that the message is due. In this course, you will learn about the essential elements of feedback, important communication techniques, and a framework for informal and formal feedback. You’ll also learn some tips for receiving feedback.
  4. Employee Recognition – Appreciating Your Employees: This session gives you the skills and tools to craft a recognition program that will help keep your most valuable resource, your employees, happy. In turn, happy employees are effective employees, and that can only mean good things for your businesses.
  5. Creating a Positive Work Environment: This course gives you a solid grounding in how you can play a role in creating a positive environment in your workplace. It shows you what a positive work environment is like and how you can help build one, whether you are an employee or a leader in the workplace.
