Course Description


Knowing what to do in increasingly complicated employee situations can be difficult for even seasoned HR, especially if Supervisors have never had training. For a new HR Manager this becomes an even a bigger problem as HR advises not just one Supervisor but all Management throughout an organization.


In an increasingly complicated world of employee compliance in which even HR struggles to keep abreast of new developments, not teaching both HR and Supervisors HR basics can be costly. After all, it is the Supervisors who interact with employees on a day-to-day basis and every day is an opportunity for problems to arise that a Supervisors was never trained in how to address. Even those who are in Management, even if they do not directly supervise employees, are still held to a higher standard of conduct as they make decisions that affect employees on a day-to-day basis.


In today’s workplace, all employees have higher expectations of their employers along with more knowledge of their rights as well as a higher likelihood of asserting those rights. There are simply more employee rights and higher employee expectations of their employers, combined with lower standards of what establishes non-compliance from an employer. This trifecta of elements creates a type of “perfect storm” of risk for employers. If a Supervisor does not know how to avoid common problems and triage more serious HR problems and/or a HR Dept. does not know how to recognize or fix problems, what can be solved as a mere miscommunication, can quickly turn into a huge problem. If Supervisors and an HR Dept. don’t know how to recognize and fix problems by working in tandem, what could have been solved at its lowest level, can quickly turn into a costly lawsuit.


However, it is not just managing compliance risk that is important. HR needs to be able to advise Supervisors how to stay compliant while motivating employees. Just as important is that Supervisors know how to hire, coach, delegate, train and develop employees. Hiring is the most important activity of both HR and Supervisors. Coaching and delegation are as close to being “superpowers” as Supervisors ever will have. Supervisors need to know how to set goals, hold people accountable and give employee feedback. Supervisors need to know how to deal with everyday squabbles, as well as bigger problems such as resistance to change. Because when Supervisors effectively handle employees’ problems, it is not just a risk management strategy it is also a powerful employee retention tool.


From a business perspective, training HR and Supervisors in the basics of HR compliance; basics of employment law, how to write documentation and how to use the tools of employee development is the cheapest thing an employer can do to stave off unwarranted employment claims and retain good employees.


From an HR perspective, training Supervisors of the basics of HR compliance can help to defend against a whole host of unwarranted employment claims, including those that often begin from miscommunication, misinformation, and mismanagement.


From a Supervisor’s perspective, managing from Day One while knowing the basics of HR is the most important thing a Supervisor can do for productivity purposes, compliance reasons, employee development and engagement, problem solving and also - to safeguard their own career.


This course if for any new HR Generalist and any Supervisor. From hiring to solving employee problems, at the end of this seminar you will be a much more competent, effective, and confident HR Generalist and/or Supervisor, able to handle HR functions, company problems and limit your company’s legal liability.
