No matter what our role is in an organization, we are all affected by human resources. We are also affected by how successful our organization is in competing in the global marketplace as well as how we can increase profits, have a high rate of success and be an employer of choice.

This 3 course Human Resource Management Suite includes Understanding the Human Resources Function, Talent and Performance Management, and High Performance Organization which targets the critical areas of an organization: First, we will discuss understanding human resources. This will help people without experience in human resources to understand the importance of this field. It will prepare both managers and business owners how to handle the basic human resource functions to ensure the best possible result. We will discuss topics such as the hiring process, how to locate quality employees in a competitive labor market, how to attract and retain top talent, employee rights and the legal side of the human resources.

The next critical area is talent and performance management. This area addresses the best practices in developing talent inside your organization. We'll cover the effect of onboarding, performance management, learning & development, and employee engagement and retention. You will be prepared to address the issues around talent and performance management and to offer solutions, tactics and strategies to attract and retain key talent professionals.

Finally, whether your organization is production or service based, you would benefit from becoming a High-Performance Organization (HPO). Benefits include increased profits, a high rate of success, and being an employer of choice. An organization is better suited for long-term success if they build an initial foundation as a High-Performance Organization.

Calendar Jun 20, 2023

Communicating successfully depends on effective use of communication strategies and behaviors. Words, facial and body movements, tone of voice, even clothing and situation, all form an intricate symbol system that must be quickly translated by those who want to communicate.

It has been said that there is no communication unless a mutual sharing of meaning takes place. It has also been said that one cannot NOT communicate. These two ideas seem to oppose one another, but they are two sides of the same coin. A smile can have many meanings, but so can silence.

This course will show you how to manage the conscious and unconscious codes of meaning people send to each other and how to respond with appropriate codes in turn. You will explore concepts of verbal and nonverbal expression, including personal style, listening, relationship dynamics, self-esteem, conflict management, and cultural and gender communication differences.
