HR Training for Managers as a Key Compliance Strategy for Your Business
Posted on Nov 14, 2011.
The value of providing training to managers throughout the employment life cycle cannot be overlooked. Training ensures that your managers are knowledgeable about your company’s workplace law obligations and skilled in delivering human resources best practices in order to become successful in their roles. Training further enables business costs to be low, employer liability to be controlled, and allows for successful organizations to emerge. Did you know that in 2010 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed 99,992 charges against the private sector?
Managers should be trained in various discipline areas, but some may or may not apply depending upon the company’s size and industry. Below are some suggested strategic and compliance training topics to assist managers in increasing effectiveness and reducing exposure.
It is vital to understand that once training is received, managers should be able to “transfer” the training into actual real life situations and settings when an opportunity presents itself. One way managers can transfer training learned is by utilizing action plans. Proper training can assist organizations by enhancing performance, productivity, employee satisfaction and customer service within a department. So, start training every day!
