    Improve your knowledge and effectiveness…

    Bellingham Technical College is offering a course beginning in October on the essentials of Human Resource Management.  This 6 week course will be held once a week, each Tuesday evening, from 6:00 - 8:00 pm from October 17th to November 21st.

    Course Outline:
    Human Resource issues impact every company in some way. The risk of losing or not attracting the right talent for your company and the real risk of not complying with the law reduce productivity, profitability and effectiveness.  That’s why it’s important to understand the essential issues surrounding HR today. SHRM, the leading global HR professional organization, has developed the SHRM Essentials of Human Resources course, which teaches the HR knowledge, skills and competencies required for overall business success.

    Whether you are new to HR, or it’s one of the many roles you fulfill at your company, BTC’s course covers the key HR topics you need to know. Backed by SHRM’s track record of providing quality HR training, the SHRM Essentials of Human Resources course covers the topics you need to meet key HR challenges that are relevant to you and your company.

    In this class you will:

    • Increase your foundational knowledge of HR practices.
    • Recognize the importance of aligning HR goals with organizational goals.
    • Understand the talent acquisition process to help avoid legal pitfalls.
    • Gain information on compensation and benefits offerings, as well as why communicating this information to employees is important.
    • Gain knowledge of employee orientation, onboarding, and other professional development programs.
    • Explain the process, methods and purpose of performance evaluations.
    • Identify key pieces of federal legislation that impact HR, including anti-discrimination laws.

    In less than 20 hours of training time, you can cover the issues you need to reduce potentially costly lawsuits. Developed by leading HR experts, HR practitioners, and legal counsel, the SHRM Essentials of Human Resources course covers introductory HR topics in a condensed, easy-to-understand format. The straightforward format ensures that HR concepts can be mastered and applied to real-life situations. Along with classroom interaction with peers and the instructor, case study exercises threaded throughout the program provide opportunities to practice applying newly acquired HR skills during training prior to using them on the job.
