Why Attend

Company expectations from Employee Relations (ER) staff are increasing, and the pressure to deliver more with less implies they should be more knowledgeable than the staff in HR administration and operations functions. Taking this into consideration, this course is designed to shed light on activities that are formally and informally expected from ER units. Also, this course is a functional journey that will assist participants in exploring the skills that contribute to success.
