Interviewing job applicants, onboarding new employees, coordinating benefits, sorting out payroll issues…the list of an HR professional’s duties goes on and on. To succeed in their roles, these individuals are required to employ a diverse skill set in an ever-changing environment. While organizing professional development opportunities and promoting employee engagement often fall under the HR department’s purview, it is important not to forget that they themselves need training to refine existing skills and gain new competencies. We offer a variety of customizable courses for HR professionals at all levels. Whether you are looking for a one hour seminar, a half-day workshop, a customized certificate program, virtual training, or a topic for your next staff development day, we can help!
