According to HumanResourcesEDU.org, human resources is used to describe both the people who work for a company or organization and the department responsible for managing all matters related to employees, who collectively represent one of the most valuable resources in any businesses or organization. The term human resources was first coined in the 1960s when the value of labor relations began to garner attention and when notions such as motivation, organizational behavior, and selection assessments began to take shape in all types of work settings.
Understanding human resources is the cornerstone of building productive and healthy organizations. To foster workplaces where employees are dedicated to the success of the company and are motivated to deliver top-notch customer service, good HR practices are necessary.
Keeping up with changes in our workplaces and employee expectations is essential. The current healthcare crisis emphasizes the necessity to evaluate HR knowledge and practice efficacy. There is little doubt that the treatment of employees prior to, throughout, and beyond the crisis will have an impact on the outcomes of the organization.
In every company or workplace, HR is one of the most essential part of its manpower. In line with this, The Halifax Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with the Department of Labour, Skills, and Immigration, is hosting a 10-week program on Human Resources Essentials. This will start on January 25 and will take place every Wednesday at 9:00 am.
You will learn how to build an HR structure in this course, and the course’s content will be tailored to take into account our present reality. The course will provide you the skills and assurance to deal with typical workplace circumstances, such as selecting the best candidates, adhering to legal requirements, motivating employees, addressing performance difficulties, and, if required, terminating employment.
The topics in this training will include successful hiring, performance management, delivering feedback, employee engagement labour standards legislation, employee handbook policies,
respectful workplaces, health and safety compliance, ending employment and terminations;
and rewards and recognition.
The trainer will be Genevieve MacInnis who has 20 years of expertise in human resources working with large multinational corporations and mid-sized Canadian businesses in both unionized and non-unionized situations.
