Training Course Syllabus:

Successful HR Management - Human Resources Seminar

You’ll learn …

  • Avoid recruiting and hiring danger zones that can trip up even the most experienced HR professionals
  • Understand the most important employment legislation and how it impacts your organization
  • Minimize your liability in every step of the discipline and dismissal process

In HR management, you can’t afford to NOT be at the top of your game. Not even for a day. It’s just too important. If you haven’t had an employee suddenly walk through your door to accuse you of a hostile work environment, complain about a bullying boss, demand reasonable accommodation or notify you that you’re being sued for overtime pay, remember it could happen. That’s where this intensive workshop comes in. It’s a rare opportunity to step back … polish your skills … and renew your energy and confidence in handling your very tough job confidently.
