    Administrative Human Resources

    HR administration is vital to the success of every business and every
    employee. Effective HR administrators make sure companies stay compliant
    with regulations, and keep their employees motivated and engaged. If you
    are a small business owner who wants a deeper understanding of HR,
    someone looking for a job in HR, or an administrative professional whose
    duties include HR, this training course is for you. It provides a general
    introduction to the role and duties of an HR administrative professional.



    Human Resources: Compensation and Benefits

    This course provides an overview of the strategic choices that employers
    must make when developing a total rewards system. HR expert Wayne
    Cascio addresses management, policy, and legal issues in developing pay
    structures, incentive plans, benefit offerings and more.


    Human Resources: Managing Employee Problems

    In this course, JoAnn Corley explains the role of an administrator—enforcing
    policy and legal rules—as well as the need and role of an advisor—coaching
    and viewing problems as opportunities for growth. First, get an overview of
    the most common employee problems and why they can present a legal risk
    to your company. Then learn why, as with most HR functions, problem
    management starts by putting a good process in place. Discover the
    importance of training and documentation, and find out how to solve
    problems when they occur.
