Managing Human Resources (2-Day)
The bigger picture ...
As difficult as your day-to-day “hot issues” seem, they pale in comparison to your larger responsibilities as a human resources professional.

You are the key talent management strategist for the organization. You are responsible for keeping up with employment laws and pertinent compliance mandates. Your boss relies on you as a key member of the leadership team ... though you’re often forced to be a “bad news” messenger, thanks to ever more complex laws and escalating benefit costs.

Plus, you’re responsible for making sure your organization’s supervisors and managers understand organizational policies and procedures ... as well as major laws and compliance mandates ... and apply them consistently and correctly.

It’s a big, big, big job ... and unfortunately, it’s one that often does not earn you the respect and appreciation you deserve because no one else comprehends just how big your job really is.

This training makes your tough job easier and helps you be more successful!

There’s absolutely no better way to update your knowledge than by attending Managing Human Resources. You’ll leave with tons of practical tools, techniques, strategies, and guidelines you can use immediately to handle your role with greater confidence and success.

Front Desk Safety and Security
Prevent workplace violence, handle emergencies and be prepared for any situation

Workplace violence couldn't happen at your organization … or could it?
Workplace violence can strike anywhere, anytime. It doesn't matter if your company is a small mom-and-pop business or a large corporation. It doesn't matter if you're in Middle America or on the East or West Coast. And it doesn't matter what type of business you work for.

In these times of turbulence and unrest, safety and security issues on the home front and in the workplace are more critical than ever before. Terrorist threats, mass corporate layoffs, a depressed economy, and political upheaval are all real factors contributing to stress and emotional anguish in the workplace.

As people feel pushed to the breaking point, workplace violence becomes more of a reality. Employees need procedures and policies in place to follow in case of emergency, and — just as important — the training and confidence to put those policies into action should the need arise.
