In a small company, managers and supervisors tend to take on responsibilities outside their skill set, and HR is often one of these. Managers and supervisors end up performing basic HR duties that include all aspects of human resource work and require a range of knowledge that the SHRM Essentials of Human Resources course provides.
The SHRM Essentials of Human Resources program develops a critical skill path for employees responsible for HR and will meet your companyâ€™s future skills and needs. HR training is a long-term investment in growth and development that will pay off when HR missteps are avoided.
Regardless of the situation, there are HR issues that your supervisors and managers are handling regularly. Some are straightforward, some are complex. Although the supervisors and managers do their best, they may violate basic HR law and leave your company in a compromising position that could eat up your hard-earned profits. They need to know where their HR role begins and ends and the consequences of their HR decisions.
Since HR can be a moving target, you need to arm your supervisors and managers with basic HR skills to prepare them for the day-to-day challenges of interacting with their staff. Prepare them with the knowledge and skills they need to maintain a positive relationship with their staff as well as avoid HR missteps that can end up in costly litigation.
