HR Essentials


This 40 hour course runs every Thursday afternoon from March until May.

Human Resource knowledge is the foundation for creating healthy and profitable workplaces. Good HR practices are required to create environments where employees are committed to the business success and are motivated to provide excellent customer service.

It is critical to stay up to date as our workplaces change and employee expectations evolve.

- Successful Hiring
- Performance Management
- Delivering Feedback
- Employee Engagement
- Labour standards Legislation
- Employee Handbook Policies
- Respectful Workplaces
- Health and Safety Compliance
