Key HR Training Topics
Human resources training spans a broad spectrum of topic areas. Here are just a few of the many essential HR training topics:
Clear communication is the foundation for any other sort of successful interaction at work. HR employees need to have communication skills mastered in order to be effective trainers and to do all of the myriad tasks that human resources involves.
Every organization needs strong leadership. That means standing up for values, demonstrating integrity and cultivating respect. HR professionals are no exception, and they even embody company values more than any other class of employee. Make sure HR training includes leadership development skills to empower your HR team to show up with the leadership needed to tackle the tough parts of the job description, from letting employees go to training them on sensitive topics.
HR is often involved when a conflict arises between two employees at work. These conflicts are never black and white. There’s usually a lot of gray area and room for hurt feelings. Having hard conversations with employees and encouraging them to resolve their differences is a huge challenge. Work to improve HR conflict management skills to help ease tension and create a safe space for all employees to work through their differences.
Managing annual review processes is a large part of most HR roles. HR training should cover how to conduct a comprehensive review cycle from start to finish. These typically involve peer reviews, manager reviews, and self reviews. They also involve setting forward-looking goals and navigating the career ladder. Make sure HR has the tools and resources they need for this important process.
