Course Detail: BUS655 - HR 101: Compliance and Talent Management

Avoid costly HR mistakes!

To be a successful small-business owner, you must master the art of juggling. Owning and managing a small business means having to take on multiple roles, from accounting to marketing to human resources. Unfortunately, having to juggle the tasks of various roles increases the likelihood of making mistakes.

It's easy for small-business owners to sometimes ignore the human resources side of business when things are running smoothly. However, doing so can lead to costly mistakes (think litigation and employee turnover) -- mistakes that could have serious consequences for small businesses.

This course is intended for new supervisors, office managers and entry level HR employees who need to better understand employment law, performance management, staffing and more.

Topics include:

  • Legal compliance requirements such as FLSA, FMLA, and Title VII
  • Recruiting and interviewing best practices
  • Performance management techniques including completing evaluations, conducting investigations and issuing discipline.

Participants will leave with a better understanding of the front-line supervisor's role in important HR-related transactions.
