Too few nonprofits have a dedicated human resource professional on staff.  Yet, the minute you have a staff member, or are even thinking of hiring your first staff member, it is imperative that someone in the organization understands the essential human resource responsibilities, regulations and laws.

Because workplace laws guide and control much of what we must do with employees, this class covers the major workplace laws and the legal principles that govern the employment relationship. It will explore the importance of good policies and procedures in creating an effective working environment and provide an introduction to some of the most common and challenging HR responsibilities: the performance management cycle; development and management of compensation strategies; and effective guidelines for hiring the right people.

Category: Audience: Executive directors, chief operating officers, chief financial officers, senior managers who oversee or handle HR, board members involved in HR or personnel committee, human resources professionals new to their roles Certificate Programs: Nonprofit Management
