HRS-501 - Introduction to HR Management
From Personnel Management to Human Resources Management, the role of the HR professional continues to change in today’s work environment.  Participants will explore today’s major HR roles and functions and how they influence and impact the success of an organization. 

HRS-502 - Recruitment and Selection
Whether you have recently lost an employee, laid someone off or are seeking a person to fill a new position, proper recruitment is crucial.  Today’s HR Professional is challenged to ensure that an effective recruitment and selection process is established to enhance organizational competitiveness, while also increasing employee capability to contribute to both organizational and professional objectives.

We will discuss issues such as external and internal forces that affect recruitment, selection, and the planning process.  Particular attention will be paid to the challenges that lie ahead for the HR professional to recruit and select in an ever-changing workplace environment.

HRS-503 - Conflict Resolution and Management
Wouldn’t it be great if we could eliminate conflict as easy as hitting the delete button on our computer?   Conflict is an occurrence of our everyday lives.  It’s inescapable and it becomes something that we try to avoid.

The focus of this course is to provide you with the tools necessary to recognize and address conflict within yourself and in your work environment.  As an HR professional, it becomes important for you to learn how to engage your colleagues and coworkers in conflict situations, as well as to help them manage conflict in the workplace.

Our time together will be spent learning how to recognize conflict, how to address it, and how to turn it around to become a positive interaction.  You will take the SDI (Strength Deployment Inventory) Assessment that will help you to understand what empowers you to communicate in a way that achieves the results you desire both when things are going well and when there is conflict and opposition.

HRS-508 - Employee Engagement
The world of work is evolving and changing, and organizations must learn to adapt.  Employee engagement is the degree to which employees are emotionally connected and committed to their organization and their role, exerting discretionary effort for the betterment of the organization. On average, only 1 in 3 employees are engaged.  The HR Professional is challenged to take the pulse of the organization and address the behaviors that create disengaged employees and introduce and generate actions and behaviors that encourage and develop engagement.

This course will focus on the “Who, What, and How” of employee engagement.  Who is responsible for it? What are the issues affecting employee engagement? And How can it happen?
