HR 101 for Managers
by Kathleen Huggins
In the free HR webinar I presented, I discuss ways to prepare your leaders. Specifically, front-line managers have a significant impact on employee performance, productivity, quality, efficiency and even turnover. A 2015 Gallup study of 7200 individuals reports that about half of employees who resign leave because of their manager. Other studies have shown the figure to be as high as 80%. With the costs associated with turnover, it is in the company’s best interest to ensure that managers and supervisors have the skills needed to keep employees engaged.
Apart from employee engagement and turnover, there are other reasons to ensure that managers are well prepared for their people management role. While there are technical HR issues that are best left to the HR subject matter experts, ensuring that your managers have some basic understanding of HR requirements will help them succeed, provide protection for your organization and make your job easier.
Training will benefit those who are new to management and to managers who are new to your organization. There are several key topics to consider including in a training program. The topics can be designed as modules so that the training can be delivered in smaller sessions, allowing managers the time to assimilate and apply each topic after learning.
