Description of Training
This workshop is intended for organizations of all sizes, as the principles of HR are relevant for a board president working with a single staff member; a director working with a very small number of staff; or a director of a large-staff organization. Attendees will leave with some basic information about effective communications/conflict resolution; staff retention and strategies for coping when a valued employee leaves; whether it’s a good idea to hire contractors in lieu of staff; and handling the employee who can’t or won’t perform to their potential.
