Building the Perfect HR Training Program - Part 3


Building the Perfect HR Training Program - Part 3

Do you know that your employees need training, but aren’t sure what topics to prioritize?

In our free guide, 10 Must-Have Training Courses for Your HR Program, we outline the 3 most important topic areas to cover when training new or existing employees. They are compliance, soft skills, and management training.

There’s a commonly shared quote floating around LinkedIn:

 “Employees don’t leave companies, they leave managers.”

Training your managers is essential. An employee's relationship with his or her direct manager is the most important single factor in employee engagement. And engaged employees = more productive employees. More productive employees = higher revenue for you. I don’t know about you, but that’s the kind of math I like.

Management Courses to Look for:

Legal Aspects of Interviewing

Understand what you need to know from a legal perspective when interviewing candidates.

Unconscious Bias

Learn what unconscious bias is, ways to make your own biases visible, and how to minimize the negative impact your unconscious bias has on your relationships with coworkers.

Coaching Conversations

Learn how to have effective one-on-one conversations about respect, including how to skillfully tackle objections and defensive responses.

Receiving Complaints

Learn how to effectively listen to an employee’s concerns and ensure you handle all workplace complaints with skill and professionalism.

Corrective Action

After becoming aware of harassment; the company has an obligation to investigate, draw conclusions, and take appropriate action that resolves the problem.

Fast Fact: Studies show that 33% of Americans believe poor leadership is the most stressful part of their jobs and employees with bad supervisors are twice as likely to be looking for a new job as those with good supervisors. Train your managers well to retain your talent!

So now you know what courses you need, but do you know how to deliver them?

These days, the most common way to deliver training is through online courses. With more and more companies employing remote workers and having multiple offices spread across the globe, it doesn’t make financial sense to fly everyone to one location for a week of in-person classroom training.

Purchasing off-the-shelf courseware enables you to quickly put together a comprehensive training program. Not all off-the-shelf training is created equal, so be sure to do your due diligence to verify you’re offering your learners engaging, quality eLearning content. Ask to see a preview of the courses before you purchase, so you can ensure they look modern and feature interactive elements.
