2 days | Non-HR managers and those new to human resources | IPMA-SCP/IPMA-CP: 6 recertification points

This 2-day course provides non-HR managers with an overview of the contemporary human resource function, including its legal framework and best practices. Front-line managers will be guided through the complete employee life cycle — from pre-recruitment to post-termination — and examine key legislation affecting the employer/employee relationship. Attendees can expect to come away with a roadmap for working effectively with the HR professionals in their organizations.

Ever wonder why the HR staff in your organization advises you the way they do? Are you curious about general HR dos and don’ts? Because of their varying degrees of involvement in HR-related activities, it’s critical that front-line managers in every department understand and operate under the guidance of HR best practices and comply with all relevant employment laws and legislation.

Designed for non-HR managers and supervisors, this course provides attendees with introductory knowledge of the essential elements of employee relation practices and general human resource leadership, management, and communication techniques, including:

  • Legal and Regulatory Compliance
  • Employment Recordkeeping
  • Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action
  • The Employment Life Cycle
  • Basic Wage and Salary Administration
  • Unemployment, Workers’ Compensation, and Safety & Health
  • Communicating with Employees
