The Business of Communication "No organization can function if its members do not communicate effectively and understand each other. Few businesses can grow without innovation and refinement. When the time comes to develop a new product, proper communication among everyone involved is vital for that product’s success."
The Period, Question Mark, and Exclamation Point "Punctuation makes a text clear. It tells us when to pause, indicates questions, links ideas, and adds expression. Some people have different preferences when it comes to punctuation, so always follow your boss’s preference.  If he or she instructs you to insert more commas or semicolons than today’s magazines and newspapers typically use, then follow your organization's preferred style. However, if a matter is left to your discretion, remember that the old tried-and-true comma rule also applies for many other marks of punctuation: “When in doubt, leave it out.” Nevertheless, there are still standards and formalities in punctuation that you must fully grasp, not only to satisfy your boss but also to help promote your own career. Your work represents you, so you want it to speak well for both your employer and for you. "
Transitions, Repetition, Parallelism and Avoiding Redundancies and Clichés "In today’s high-tech business world, someone’s first impression of you may be through your writing.

It’s how we coordinate actions and achieve goals. The majority of a manager’s time is spent communicating, and communication ability is firmly related to a manager’s performance."
Understanding Linear and Circular Communication Styles "We have all encountered people who annoy us when they speak. They may ramble on about unimportant details, or they may be brusque and rude.

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT ^ Back to Top Menu
TITLE COURSE DESCRIPTION
Handling Conflict and Negotiation Ethically "Are hardball tactics OK to use? Sometimes a course of action is legal, but is questionable in terms of ethics. Ethics establish a way of doing what is right, fair, and honest. If your counterpart feels you are being unfair or dishonest, he or she is less likely to make any concessions—or even to negotiate with you in the first place."
Handling Conflicts in High-Value Relationships "Conflict management strategies will help you be more productive both in your work life and in your personal life. The Thomas- Kilmann conflict model discusses five strategies for confronting conflict."
Handling Conflicts in Low-Value Relationships "Conflict is unavoidable. We will inevitably disagree with people, and sometimes those disagreements can become serious. However, not all conflict should be handled the same way. There are some people who are very important to us—family and friends, and in another way coworkers and bosses; there are other people whom we need for their services but with whom we have very little interaction. These low-value relationships have their own strategies for conflict resolution."
Identifying the Causes of Conflict "There are many potential root causes for conflict—basically, anything that leads to a disagreement could be a cause. Conflict is common to organizations, especially larger ones, but some companies have more than others. If you understand the common ways in which conflict can bloom, and the potential outcomes for disagreements, you will be better equipped to prevent this issue from gettingin the way of your operations."
Managing Conflict "Have you ever known someone that was just difficult to get along with? Sometimes, people seem to be looking for a reason to disagree with you. Even if you don’t work with someone like this, conflict will happen, whether it’s between you and an employee, or between two differenat employees. When conflict does arise, it will be up to you to manage it in an effective and professional manner."
Managing Conflict in the Workplace "Dealing with conflict at work can be uncomfortable, frustrating, and tiring. However, conflict isn't necessarily a bad thing—it can help your team and company grow and improve. How you manage it can determine the success of the team, idea, or product. There are different managerial decisions you can make to diffuse and work through conflict, and different styles of managing conflict. In this course, you will learn about ways of managing organizational conflict, conflict management styles, and other considerations that must be made when addressing conflict in the workplace."
Productive Conflict Resolution – An Introduction "When conflict is present in an organization it can cause stress and uncertainty. By reframing how employees think about conflict, and by using team agreements to put a framework for dealing with conflict in place, much of that stress can be redirected into productivity."
Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Model "The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Model is a model that will bring you a tremendous amount of help as you learn to deal with conflict in a more productive and intentional way. This model encourages you to think about what you are trying to accomplish when you get into a conflict, allowing you to implement strategies that will allow for an optimal outcome."
Understanding Conflict in the Workplace "Most people are uncomfortable with conflict, but is conflict always bad? There are different types of conflict, resulting in pros and cons within an organization. Perhaps the most important thing to realize is that managing conflict and engaging in effective negotiation are key to nurturing and preserving working relationships and fostering a positive work environment."
Win-Win Negotiations for Conflict Resolution "In this module, we'll focus on specific steps that you can use in a Win-Win Negotiation Process.

Stress Management – Stress Awareness Comes First "There are two kinds of stress people deal with: motivating stress that helps you get things done, and paralyzing stress that stands in the way of your productivity.

Stress Management – Taking Care of Yourself "Taking care of yourself is important—you can’t be the best version of yourself if you aren't healthy.

Stress, Emotions, and Ethics "A gap between our true feelings and the feelings we display at work can cause distress. What happens when there is a gap between our feelings and our true beliefs? Emotions not only play a valuable part in our work, but also in our personal lives. By learning to identify and maximize the uses of our emotions at work, we can more appropriately respond to emotional situations."

Therefore, managers must understand what strategies are effective in helping employees deal with work-related stress."

TITLE COURSE DESCRIPTION
A New Way to Train Employees Employee training and development is the process of helping develop employee’s  personal and organizational skills, knowledge, and abilities. Today, employee training has evolved to be more interactive and engaging for the trainee; advances in workplace technology make orientations and company-wide trainings less expensive and more efficient for everyone involved.
A Safe Workplace – OSHA and Right-to-Know Laws in the U.S. "Workplace safety must be a primary consideration for any organization. According to OSHA’s website, in 2015, 4,379 workers were killed by workplace accidents and the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports nearly three million workplace injuries occurred in the same year. These staggering numbers represent, not only a cost to employees’ well-being, but also financial and time costs to the company. It is vital that you understand the safety laws and procedures in place to protect you and your employees."
Administration of a Collective Bargaining Agreement When your business operates under a collective bargaining agreement, it means that its employees are unionized and have negotiated a contract acceptable to both employees and management. When employees feel mistreated or that their contract was breached, there is an official union process—a grievance—that is used to resolve the issue. This is a formal negotiation in which certain practices must be met.
Analyzing Pay Theories Providing fair and equal pay is one matter, but understanding your employees’ perception of fair pay is another. While you may believe employee compensation is satisfactory, it is very possible an employee might believe differently. When it comes to pay, there are many psychological theories behind how to satisfy an employee.  
Applying Management Styles in Organizations "This course discusses the proper application of different management styles within an organization by examining Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership Model."
Beginning Development for Training Programs "The process of developing a training program can seem daunting—there are many steps. Developing a framework can help make the task more manageable and keep you organized throughout the process.  Two of the most important pieces of this framework will be identifying the needs assessment and learning objectives, and the learning styles."
Building Framework for the Development of Training Programs What makes a successful training program? In order for a training to be effective, those planning it must think about its delivery method, style, how much money is available, who the audience is, and what the training objectives are. 
Career Development Programs Career development, sometimes called professional development, should be part of any company’s training program. A career development program is a process to help your employees manage their career, learn new skills, obtain additional education, and take steps to improve themselves personally and professionally. It is a training program of sorts, but crafted specifically for individuals rather than groups.
Communication Styles and Emotional Intelligence Communication is vital to a successful career as a manager. Miscommunication happens all the time, and it can seriously get in the way of your success. However, everyone can improve communication skills. There are a few basic principles that can make you a better speaker and listener.
Compiling Employee Satisfaction Data This course offers key research strategies for compiling employee satisfaction data. These strategies are essential elements in creating an employee retention plan. 
Completing and Conducting Employee Performance Appraisals "Managers must give their employees feedback through a systematic performance evaluation system. This is a very important part of management; feedback helps employees understand their strengths and weaknesses, gives them important information about how to improve their work, and increases overall performance. Creating an effective performance appraisal system and implementing it properly are vital to employee success."
Completing the Framework for Developing Training Programs "Creating a training program is an involved process that requires much planning and gathering of information. Breaking the process into steps is a helpful approach.  Once you've completed the initial steps of the process and are in the home stretch, you'll be ready to take on the final three steps: timelines, communication, and measuring effectiveness."
Costs and Causes of Employee Turnover "Why do good employees leave and what does it cost a company when it occurs? Losing an employee is called turnover, and the rate of turnover at a company can be a clue to how well employees are treated, and overall employee satisfaction. The ultimate goal of most companies is to have a low turnover rate; in order to achieve that, you must understand the reasons for employee turnover, and have a retention plan in place."
Current Labor Challenges and Labor Laws in the U.S. Current Labor Challenges and Labor Laws in the U.S.
Dealing With Performance Issues "Dealing with employees who are underperforming in their jobs is perhaps  the most difficult jobs you'll undertake, but it is a necessary one. What protocol exists for disciplining employees with performance issues? There are several types of discipline and dispute resolutions that management can utilize to address employee performance issues."
Deciding on a Pay System If we didn't get paid, we wouldn’t go to work. Deciding how your business’s salaries will be structured is an important part of ensuring that employees are compensated fairly for the work that they do for you. Salary cannot be arbitrary or based on something as whimsical as employee likeability. There are many different methods to create your payment structure to the benefit of your employees and your organization.
Designing a Performance Appraisal System Some researchers suggest that the performance appraisal system is perhaps one of the most important parts of the organization, while others suggest that performance appraisal systems are ultimately flawed, making them worthless. For the purpose of this discussion, let’s assume you can create a performance appraisal system that provides value to the organization and the employee. When designing this process, recognize that any process has its limitations, but if you plan it correctly, you can minimize some of the flaws.
Determining Internal and External Pay Factors There are many factors that influence a company’s salaries. Managers responsible for determining salaries take many different elements into account, based on the philosophies and resources of their organizations and on external market. Effective management can balance these factors to create a pay structure that is fair, feasible, and attractive to potential employees.
Determining International Employee Compensation in the U.S. How do you determine compensation for international employees? There are many variables to think about, including cultural concerns, legal mandates within countries, and cost-of-living considerations. As a manager, you need stay informed about the different types of compensation plans and other potential human resource issues that apply to your organization.
Developing a Compensation Package Before you determine your business’s compensation structure, you should learn the foundations about compensation.
Developing Employees "Have you ever started your first day at a new job feeling upbeat and optimistic, only to walk out at the end of the day thinking that maybe you've taken the wrong job? If this happens too often, your employer may need to revise its approach to orientation—the way it introduces new employees to the organization and their jobs. Starting a new job is a little like beginning college. You can ease this transition for new employees by applying best practices of employee development, especially new employee orientation."
Directions of Communication in an Organization "This course teaches learners about the four main directions of communication within an organization and their benefits. It also considers the different approaches an organization can take regarding communication."
Email Management and Ethics This course discusses the proper application of different management styles within an organization by examining Ken Blanchard’s Situational Leadership Model.
Employee Compensation and Benefits Most employees, even those who love their jobs, ultimately show up and perform their work to earn a paycheck. But a paycheck isn't the only part of employee compensation, as there are incentives and benefits to consider.
Employee Personality and Fit "You are interviewing a candidate for a position as a cashier in a supermarket. You need someone polite, courteous, patient, and dependable. The candidate you are talking to seems nice, but how do you know who is the right person for the job? Will the job candidate like the job or get bored? Will they have a lot of accidents on the job or be fired for misconduct? Don't you wish you knew before hiring? "
Employee Retention Strategies – Pay for Performance and Work-Life Balance "What makes good employees stay at their jobs? Employee retention refers to an organization’s goal that competent, hardworking employees remain in their roles with the organization. There are two main strategies for employee retention: pay-for-performance, when employees are rewarded for their achievements, and work-life-balance, which ensures employees can meet both home and work responsibilities."
Employee Rights – Job Protection Rights in the U.S. "Employees have quite a few legal rights to job protection, which HR professionals must understand and practice to avoid lawsuits and employee conflict. "
Employee Rights – Labor Unions in the U.S. The importance of unions, and their meaning to your organization and your employees, can be confusing. By learning about the history, purpose, and processes involved with employee-union relations, you will gain understanding of the role unions play in the life of a company. 
Employee Rights – Privacy What rights do employees have concerning their privacy in the workplace? Several laws exist to protect employee privacy, while still allowing employers to maintain a safe work environment. Failure to follow these laws can expose a company to potential lawsuits and fines, so it’s important to be informed about the various facets of this issue.
Employee Separation, Rightsizing and Layoffs "Letting an employee go is one of the less pleasant tasks facing managers. However, there are times that it must be done, and there are right ways to do it. It is important to follow the proper procedures so that the whole thing is as painless and efficient as possible."
Expatriate Selection, Cultural Training and Other Considerations in the U.S. "Businesses with an international presence or those hoping to expand internationally will sometimes have to send an employee overseas. This is a unique assignment. It’s not like being promoted in-house or changing positions from one department to another. There are important considerations specific to international assignment when you are selecting the employee and there is specific training you should provide to someone going to another country."
Exploring Indian Culture "India is a vast sub-continent that includes the countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. When you think about India alone, there are more than 1.3 billion people and more than 20 languages. It’s similar to Europe because the many states have multiple languages and different values associated with them."
Exploring Latino Culture "The Latino population in America continues to grow, and with it comes an increasing presence of different cultural expectations. You may know the right ways to speak to customers from your own culture, but you may be unfamiliar with customers who have a different understanding and processes for addressing difficulties. It is important that you understand the norms of Latino culture and how to adhere to those norms."
Exploring Russian Culture "Russia is the largest country in the world and has more than a thousand years of documented history. As many Russians have immigrated to the United States, facets of Russian culture have become infused in our society. Since many people of Russian descent keep close ties with the traditions of their homeland, it’s helpful for others to understand a few things about Russian culture."
Exploring the Global Business Environment in the US "If your company expands to the global marketplace, will you be prepared to make human resource management decisions regardless of the type of market the company pursues? There are many considerations when thinking about the global environment of a business, especially when it comes to human resource management."
Exploring the Need for Labor Unions in the U.S. "Full time employees have the right to expect that their jobs will provide security and safety, as well as a salary that will allow them to take care of all their physical needs. On the other hand, businesses have their own goals for profit, low operating costs, and commercial growth. Sometimes, these sets of needs are not compatible. When there is conflict, employees may feel the need to form a union, or a formal body responsible for negotiating terms with management."
Global Anti-Bribery and Corruption "Each one of us has an obligation to act responsibly and with integrity when doing business. Businesses and officials must maintain controls and assessments to prevent corruption. This is done by keeping fair and accurate record keeping. Laws are also in place to ensure businesses and officials maintain the highest ethical standards."
Health Hazards at Work – Cumulative Trauma and Exposures "When employees suffer injuries or illnesses due to factors from the workplace, a company loses money. This may be due to loss of productivity, worker turnover, or an increase in benefits. Ideally, a company will have policies and procedures in place to help prevent and address trauma in the workplace."
Health Hazards at Work – Promoting a Culture of Safety and Health "OSHA covers many areas relating to health and safety in the workplace, often providing extensive training, however, there are some concerns that you, as a manager, must address. For example, stress management, office-related injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and no-fragrance areas are all contemporary issues surrounding employee health and safety that government agencies do not oversee. It is important that you understand how your company should address concerns like these."
Health Hazards at Work – Stress in the US While OSHA covers many areas relating to health and safety at work, a few other areas are also important to mention. Stress management, office-related injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and no-fragrance areas are all contemporary issues surrounding employee health and safety. We will discuss the issue of stress in this course.
Health Hazards at Work – Violence and Bullying in the U.S. OSHA covers many areas relating to health and safety at work, and often provides extensive training. There are some additional areas, outside of OSHA requirements; that need to be addressed to create a safe work environment.  For example, many employees are at risk of being assaulted by customers, invaders and even coworkers. Workplace bullying is also a concern; it can seriously impact an employee’s emotional and physical safety. It is important that you understand how your company should address concerns like these.
Hiring Employees "Hiring new employees is a very complicated process. Before it begins, you should have each step planned out and leave little room for error or impromptu actions. So that you can plan these steps better, it is important that you understand what each one entails."
Human Resources Global Strategies in the U.S. "In a world in which international business is increasingly the norm, it is important that your organization can function on a global scale. There is more to this than simply opening an office in a foreign country. There are unique considerations in all aspects of business functions, from legal and cultural ramifications to economic concerns to operations. Before you expand internationally, you must be aware of how human relations management is conducted."
Identifying Diversity in Others (2018) Moved to diversity and inclusion course bundle
Implementing Retention Strategies "How do you get good employees to stay? There are any number of reasons that motivate employees to stay with a company, and understanding those reasons helps lay the foundation for developing a solid retention plan. There are also several strategies companies can use to ensure that good employees are motivated to commit to the company for a long time. "
International Law for Expatriates in the U.S. "When thinking about helping expatriate employees begin a new overseas assignment, HRM has a lot to think about. There are many legal policies and other concerns facing an expatriate depending on the country, including visas and taxes. Part of your job as manager may be to help international employees begin a new job positively, so you need to stay informed about the issues surrounding overseas assignments as they pertain to your organization."
Introducing Human Resource Management There is a stereotype of human resources workers as being false empathetic bureaucrats. It’s not a very flattering image. However, a human resource representative’s job is to care about ensuring an organization has a full staff capable of performing daily operations without undue strain. It is also the representative’s job to ensure that the organization’s workforce is safe, happy, and taken care of. It’s a very important part of any organization, and requires a specific, strategic plan.
Introduction to Compensation and Benefits Having a good compensation package can offer reasons for employees to stay with an organization. It can be an enticement for recruiting new employees. However, there are other aspects and reasons to having a good compensation package to offer your employees.
Introduction to Employee Assessment All too often, managers and employees dread performance evaluations. Sometimes people can respond to criticism with defensiveness and frustration. For this reason, managers may feel awkward giving negative feedback to employees. However, it is of the utmost importance that as a manager, you provide employees with fair feedback, even if that means identifying areas of improvement. By offering evaluations in a systematic way, you can help reduce tension and hard feelings in evaluations by making these assessments less personal.
Introduction to Labor Unions in the U.S. "Throughout the history of the industrialized world, there has been the threat, and sometimes practice, of exploitation and unfair labor practices. Unions exist to protect their members from these problems. It is important for people in management to understand the history of this practice and the practices and laws surrounding them."
Introduction to Managing Employee Performance "New employees require a lot of investment of both time and money. The costs to select, hire, and train new employees can be staggering. It can be very disappointing when these employees don't work out. It can be even more disappointing when veteran workers suddenly start showing behavior or performance issues. However, these things do happen. There are many ways in which an employee can damage their own performance or the operation of the whole organization."
Laws Relating to Pay in the US Throughout American history, employee rights has caused concern for many employers and organizations. Throughout the 20th century, the United States has instituted a series of legal protections for its labor force, much of which concerns ensuring fair compensation. Failing to follow these laws can result in very serious consequences, including crippling fines and prison time. It is very important that managers understand these laws and the various ways to ensure that they are followed.
Leveraging Diversity and Strengths in the Workplace (2018) Moved to diversity and inclusion course bundle
Managing Employee Performance – A Look at Influences and Discipline "Sometimes, employees just aren't performing the way you want them to. This may simply be because they don't have the skills, or knowledge required to succeed, but there are other influences that can cause a person to perform less than adequately. Sometimes, addressing these influences directly will solve the problem; other times, you will have to take disciplinary action. Recognizing these influences and knowing the right way to discipline employees will help you to get your employees to the level you want."
Managing Expatriates – Reducing Stress and Homesickness in the U.S. Though all employees suffer from stress at one point or another, employees on international assignments face unique challenges. Not only do they have the standard job stresses, they must also deal with the fact that they are living and working in a foreign country and are struggling with culture shock, homesickness, family difficulties, and other personal issues. You may find yourself in a situation in which you must help these employees handle such problems.
Maximizing Productivity – Accommodations for Employees with Psychiatric Disabilities in the U.S. "Psychiatric disabilities are not uncommon, but they can be more difficult to recognize than something like a physical disability, which is more obvious in nature. As with other types of disabilities, employees with psychiatric disabilities are legally entitled to reasonable accommodations that help them perform their job to the best of their abilities. "
More Methods for Training Delivery A well-trained employee is one of a business’s most valuable assets. Depending on the type of training needed, you may choose one delivery method over another. Different delivery methods can provide different advantages to the employee being trained and to your organization. Keep in mind, however, that most good training programs will use a variety of delivery methods.
Multiculturalism and the Law in the U.S. "As we already know, it is in an organization’s best interest to hire and promote a multicultural and diverse workforce. However, workplace discrimination is an ongoing problem that some people experience. As a result, a federal agency has been established to ensure employees have a place to file complaints, should they feel discriminated against."
Nonverbal Communication and Listening In business, as in most other parts of life, being able to communicate well is a serious advantage.

Onboarding – Best Practices "Starting a new job can be a daunting prospect. When you have a new job, you have so much to learn, and you're probably uncertain about exactly what you will have to do. You may feel a bit out of place with your new coworkers and you may feel uncomfortable with the new organizational culture. Onboarding is the process where new employees are introduced to all major aspects of their work and are integrated into the company culture. Done correctly, onboarding makes this transition smooth and easy."
Onboarding – Orientations "Starting a new job can be a daunting prospect. When you have a new job, have so much to learn, and you are probably uncertain about exactly what you will have to do. You may feel a bit out of place with your new coworkers and you may feel uncomfortable with the new organizational culture. Onboarding is the process through which new employees are introduced to all major aspects of their work and are integrated into the culture. Done correctly, onboarding makes this transition smooth and easy."
Onboarding – The Power of Day One "Starting a new job can be a very difficult experience. It is important that any business or organization helps their new employees feel positive and welcome from their very first day. This is the time where new employees form very strong impressions about your organization; you must work to ensure that these impressions attract them to their new jobs and make them feel at ease."
Onboarding – Transmitting Culture "When we talk about organizational culture, we're talking about the set of key values, beliefs, and attitudes that are shared among an organization’s members. The organizational culture will affect most aspects of procedures and operations, sometimes through conscious effort and sometimes through unconscious absorption. It is important that you understand your organizational culture and how it can affect your employees."
Onboarding – Why You Should Care "Why is onboarding important? One of the first impressions a new employee has  about an employer is shaped during the onboarding process.  Onboarding is an opportunity to introduce important information to new employees and to set them up with the tools they need for success."
Onboarding Tools "Most organizations have some type of onboarding program for new employees, but not all are effective. The onboarding process is so important because it sets the tone for an employee’s tenure with an organization. Therefore, a well-thought out, well-planned onboarding process lays a solid, positive foundation for a new employee, whereas a poorly planned or poorly executed one can leave the employee feeling unsure or unconfident about their place in the organization. There are many tools you can use to create the type of onboarding program that will set employees up to thrive within your company."
Organizing the Performance Appraisal Process and Conducting Appraisal Interviews "How do your employees know if they are doing a good job? Performance appraisals are a major part of any HR professional’s job, but they require careful planning and execution. Successfully conducting a performance appraisal should result in a positive outcome for both the employee and the manager, as a well as the organization as a whole. "
Pay Types and Considerations "There are many variables that go into the decisions HRM must make with organizational leadership to determine how employees are paid. Some of the factors to be considered when an organization creates a pay system include things such as the potential growth of the organization, as well as the methods used to incentivize and compensate employees."
PCI-DSS and Wireless Use If you have wireless access to computers or terminals that contain cardholder data, make sure the data is segregated and encrypted, and that the connection is secure. Some of the most famous hacks on retail outlets’ credit card information came from criminal hackers sitting outside a store and capturing not only credit card numbers, but passwords and authentication information, which they then used to break into corporate networks and steal tens of millions of credit card numbers and associated data. In this course, we'll discuss the PCI Data Security Standards and wireless use best practices.
PCI-DSS Compliance Standards "It seems we read about major security breaches in the news on a daily basis. With big names like Target and Best Buy in the headlines, it’s no wonder that even small retailers need to take precautions when it comes to Payment Card Industry data security. Learning more about the specific requirements for the Payment Card Industry is key to protecting certain card data information so you can be at the front line of data security."
PCI-DSS Relation to Data Cards and Equipment PCI-DSS requires merchants and vendors to validate their compliance every year. From your standpoint, it’s of utmost importance to be mindful of the fact that credit card data is extremely sensitive, and to treat it accordingly. In this course, we’ll focus on what you need to do as a user.
Performance Appraisal System Errors and Legal Considerations "Why are performance appraisal systems important and what can possibly go wrong with them? Learn about the potential pitfalls of performance appraisal systems and the legal considerations present."
Performance Appraisals "Employees generally want their managers to tell them three things: what they should be doing, how well they're doing it, and how they can improve their performance. Good managers address these issues on an ongoing basis and also conduct regular official appraisals. Knowing the best ways to provide this feedback is a tremendous asset for you and your employees."
Practicing Advanced Retention Strategies "Managers have a profound effect on whether or not employees want to continuing working for the company. In a recent Gallup poll of one million workers, poor management was the top cause of resignations. Incompetent managers, bullying managers, or managers with poor communication skills can seriously damage employee morale, thus leading to a high turnover. Manager training is important to minimizing this negative impact. There are many different ways in which management policy can improve employees’ perception of their jobs."
Preventing Workplace Discrimination and Harassment for Employees Every employee has the right to come to work and do their job without being treated unfairly. There are a number of laws designed to protect individuals from discriminatory employment practices as well as harassment and retaliation; specifically if it’s based on an individual’s membership in any protected group. This course discusses the laws that protect individuals from discriminatory employment practices, harassment and retaliation.

This course also provides specific guidelines for an effective complaint procedure in your organization.
Providing Government-Mandated Benefits Although many employee benefits are offered on a voluntary basis, some benefits are required by law. There are set standards for these benefits and for how they are administered. It is important to understand how these work.
Providing Voluntary Benefits – Incentive Pay and Paid Time Off "How are good employees rewarded? There are many different types of compensation and benefits that help a company stay relevant and competitive to employees. Although types of compensation vary, their purpose is the same: to recruit, reward, and retain the best employees and give a company a competitive advantage."
Providing Voluntary Benefits – Medical Insurance and 401(k)s "You do not have to provide voluntary benefits to your employees—they are voluntary, after all. However, they can be a tremendous motivator and an excellent retention tool. Although they are useful, they are also costly.  It is the duty of HR professionals to choose the most cost-efficient benefits to offer."
Recruitment – Job Analysis and Job Descriptions "Job analysis is a formal write-up that explicitly determines the “what and how” of a job. The purpose of a job analysis is to match a job to the employee who performs it, and to determine how employee performance will be assessed. "
Recruitment – Process and Strategy The recruitment process is an important part of human resource management (or HRM), and it isn't done without proper strategic planning. Recruitment is defined as a process that provides the organization with a pool of qualified job candidates from which to choose. Before a company recruits, it must implement proper staffing plans and forecasting to determine how many people they will need.
Recruitment Law, Part One – IRCA and Patriot Act in the U.S. One of the most important parts of Human Resource Management (HRM), is to know all the laws and applying them to  all activities the Human Resources department handles. Specifically, with hiring processes, the law is very clear on fair hiring practices that are inclusive to all individuals applying for a job. It is of the utmost importance that you familiarize yourself with the laws affecting the hiring process and communications within your organization.
Recruitment Law, Part Two – EEO Set of Laws in the U.S. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a federal agency charged with the task of enforcing federal employment discrimination laws. While you may know about the EEOC, they are worth mentioning in relation to the recruitment process. In order avoid legal matters, understanding how the EEOC plays a role in recruiting is essential.
Recruitment Strategies, Part One You have worked hard to develop effective job analyses, job descriptions, and job specifications, and you are aware of the laws relating to recruitment. So, now it is time to start recruiting! Of course, this means developing a recruitment plan and becoming aware of all your different recruitment options.
Recruitment Strategies, Part Two "Where can you find qualified candidates for the open positions in your organization? There are many different recruitment sources; some reliant on the most current technology, and some from more traditional channels.  You can use one tried and true source, or a variety of these sources from which to draw a pool of qualified job candidates."
Retaining Your Best People "Part of the job of a human resources manager is to develop strategies to keep employees from leaving the company. The more you retain your employees, the more efficient and successful your organization becomes. To do this, you must gather data about the satisfaction of your current employees and use that information to develop specific retention plans. However, before you take those steps, you should understand some theories of job satisfaction and dissatisfaction."
Selecting New Employees – Criteria Development and Resume Review "When a new position opens on your team, you will likely be responsible for making the hiring decision. As with most aspects of management, the hiring process should be specifically planned out. Knowing the kind of person you want to hire, and knowing how to use résumés to determine qualified candidates will be a valuable tool in making sure you select the right candidate."
Selecting New Employees – Interview Methods and Avoiding Mistakes We have all been through a process of interviewing, evaluation, and hiring; it is an unavoidable part of the business world. Some may have encountered people who were not successful at conducting a smooth interviewing  process and some of you may even have turned down a job offer based on a poor application experience. It is important for managers to understand how to create and execute a hiring process properly, without making the  common mistakes.
Selecting New Employees – Making the Offer Selecting the appropriate candidate for a job is not the end of the hiring process. The next step is to make sure you offer an appropriate compensation to your selected candidate. Presenting an employment offer improperly can have negative effects on the candidate’s employment, even going so far as to make that candidate seek employment elsewhere. With the right care and attention to detail, you can make the candidate’s, now a new employee, first experience valuable and exciting.
Selecting New Employees – Selection Methods Selecting new employees can be a lengthy and costly process. It’s important to get through the process as effectively and efficiently as possible. Using the right selection method is a big step in the right direction. 
Selecting New Employees – Testing "Resumes and interviews are not the only ways to select people for a job. Many organizations test their candidate's’ aptitudes, personality, or other skills to make sure that they will be a good fit. Whether you will administer tests and what those tests should be, will depend heavily on what position you are hiring for. It is important for you to understand the kinds of tests available to you."
Selecting New Employees – The Selection Process Whether because of employee turnover or company growth, new employees must be selected and hired, sometimes on a frequent basis. There is much to consider when selecting new employees, including the cost in doing so and what type of process should be followed.
Selecting New Employees – Types of Interviews and Interview Questions "Interviewing people costs time and money. After candidates make it through the initial screening, it is very important to conduct good interviews so that you can efficiently select the right candidate. Many businesses have lost time and money because their new employees couldn't perform the job or just plain quit. Knowing the different interview options available to you will help you in this process. "

There are three options when staffing internationally: home-country, host-country and third-country national strategies. Each option has pros and cons, which should be weighed carefully when making a decision.
The Collective Bargaining Process in the US When employees of an organization vote to unionize, the process for collective bargaining begins. Collective bargaining is the process of negotiations between the company and representatives of the union. The goal is for management and the union to reach a contract agreement, which is put into place for a specified period of time. Once this time is up, a new contract is negotiated.
The Four Stages of Employee Training What type of training does a new employee need to be successful in their job? Employees thrive when expectations and responsibilities are made clear from the beginning. Effective training is key to the success and retention of new employees and as an employer you should be well-versed in the various steps required.
The U.S. Legal Environment in Human Resources "If you remember your United States history lessons, you will know that the Industrial Revolution sparked a serious backlash about employee rights. Over the last century, the U.S. has instituted a series of legal protections for its labor force. Failing to follow these laws diligently can result in very serious consequences, including crippling fines and prison time. It is very important that you understand these laws."
Types of Communication Styles in an Organization "What kind of communicator are you? The way you communicate with others can make the difference between success and failure in your career, so this topic deserves some attention.  There are different types of communicators and different types of communication styles used in personal and business communication. "
Types of Management Styles in an Organization "Every manager has his or her own different style.

If you are aware of the different ways of managing your team, you will be able to approach each situation in the way that will make your style and solutions as effective as possible."
Types of Professional Training for Employees In many jobs, professional training is an ongoing process. Successful organizations expect continuing education and/or training to stay current with changes in their field. This continued professional training, may be required by your organization or through the certification or professional license, which the employee holds. Technology, laws and policy, as well as external factors are constantly changing, and your employees must keep up with these evolution's.
Types of Training for Employees "What types of training are important for employees, both new and established? Depending on the field you are in, there will be specific types of employee training you'll need to be aware of, including technical training, quality training, and skills and soft skills training. "
Understanding and Investigating Performance Issues "One of the duties of a manager or HR representative is to address employee performance issues. Therefore, it’s important to know your company’s policies and procedures, which address job performance; this knowledge will let you know what course to take, and what your options are."
Understanding Performance Appraisal Methods – Part One It is very important that employees are appraised and evaluated on a regular basis. Not only does this give management a way to objectively understand each employee’s strengths and weaknesses, but it also allows the employees to know how they can improve the quality of their work. There are many different methods for appraising performance. Which one is the most effective for your company depends on your industry and on the specific job; however, many businesses prefer to use several methods in combination.
Understanding Performance Appraisal Methods – Part Three "It is very important that employees are appraised and evaluated on a regular basis. Not only does this give management a way to objectively understand each employee’s strengths and weaknesses, but it also allows the employees to know how they can improve the quality of their work. There are many different methods for appraising performance. Which one is the most effective for your company depends on your industry and on the specific job; however, it is important to understand several different methods and why a business may choose one over another."
Understanding Performance Appraisal Methods – Part Two You may already know that establishing a systematic performance appraisal benefits your organization, including yourself  as a manager and your employees. However, the type of system you decide to use may vary greatly depending on your organization and the nature of work performed by employees. Certain types of appraisals may be more thorough, but will require unrealistic time and effort on the part of a manager in a large company.
Understanding the Code of Conduct Policy Here, you’ll learn about the code of conduct or ethics policy most business have, which detail how employees should conduct themselves in business dealings with its various stakeholders—including officers, employees, board members, customers and shareholders.

Unionization and Corporate Resistance in the U.S. Although unions are currently in decline in America, they still can have a lot of influence. Sometimes, employees who feel disgruntled may decide to unionize at a business that has traditionally been nonunion. This can cause a great deal of difficulty for both employees and employers. You should know how to handle it if your employees start to go through this process.
Utilizing Job Evaluation Systems Job evaluation means just that: evaluating each position within your company. This allows you to determine how much each position is worth—that is, how much you should pay employees who hold that position. Using a consistent method to evaluate jobs, helps ensure that your pay structure is fair. It helps you consider each job by itself and compared to other jobs within your company to create salaries based on these considerations.
What is New Employee Onboarding? "The first day of a new job can be quite overwhelming. Although employees are eager to start their work, they don’t know their coworkers, they don’t know their boss’s expectations, and they don’t know what it will be like to work at this new, unfamiliar place. An organization that plans a fulsome onboarding process will help new employees’ integration be painless and fruitful."
What Makes a Great Place to Work "Happy employees are motivated employees. The better people feel about their jobs, the harder they work. Most people report that they are happiest with their work when they are challenged, respected, treated fairly, and appreciated. People want to feel pride in their work, feel that they make a difference, and feel that they have the opportunity to grow their careers. The best managers understand their employees’ wants and needs and work to fulfill them."
Working with Unions and Bargaining Breakdowns Unionizing, bargaining, and striking are considered to be among employees’ basic rights. It’s ideal when the bargaining process is smooth and productive; however, this does not always happen. Sometimes, negotiations stall because one side or the other refuses to compromise on certain points. When this happens, there are several common tactics that unions and management use to get the other side to give in.
