MegaSession C: HR Basic Training Module 1

Tuesday, May 10th, 2022 @ 10:15 am - 11:45 am

HR Basic Training Session is FULL

Introduction to the Employee Life Cycle  

***Note, that this session is intended for new HR practitioners (i.e. you’ve joined the profession within the last couple of years).  

HR Basic Training – First Module. One of the terrific aspects of a career in Human Resources is the opportunity to work in so many areas, all under the HR umbrella, especially when serving as an HR Generalist (as opposed to a Specialist, which connotes someone who is working solely in one aspect of HR, such as Compensation). In this interactive and fun work-session with Ross Gibson, we will explore HR through the lens of the employee life cycle. This is the engaging opening for the two-day boot camp (followed by some golden tips this afternoon and a full day of the ins and outs of employment law tomorrow). This segment begins with issues related to recruitment and sourcing, takes you through the on-boarding process, and on to the actual experience of employees in-house right up through the end of their time with your organization. The focus will be on roles and responsibilities, with a bounty of practical advice. The goal is to highlight the framework for human resources in your workplace and to help open your eyes to learning and understanding the possibilities for HR.
