  • Fostering a Nurturing Healthcare Workplace

    Every organization in every industry has to get work done by using limited resources; this is especially so in the field of healthcare. Healthcare facility administrators who have to achieve results using fewer resources should understand the important role that staff training, productivity, job satisfaction, and motivation plays in getting the job done. A workforce that is engaged is also satisfied. This in turn increases productivity for the facility. This course discusses the link between employee engagement and satisfaction, along with how to build an engaged, motivated workforce.
  • Human Resource Planning

    Human resource management is the set of tasks managers undertake to effectively manage a company’s employees.  Strategic human resource management is the process of connecting the human resource function in an organization to the strategic objectives of the organization in order to improve performance.  There are two types of roles on a human resource management team: generalists and specialists.  Human resource management also includes the processes of performance management and succession planning.
  • Training and Development

    Training occurs when companies provide employees the opportunity to develop the job-specific skills, experience, and knowledge they need to do their jobs or improve their performance. Instructional design is the practice of arranging media and content to help learners transfer knowledge in the most effective manner.  Managers consult on early stages of design, but are often key players when it comes time to train their workers.
  • Performance Evaluations

    For companies to be successful, they must routinely review the efforts each employee makes towards meeting company objectives. Leaders should consistently manage employee performance throughout the year, coaching poor behaviors and recognizing desired behaviors. This cycle of performance management is documented and used to give employees formal performance evaluations.This course discusses performance evaluations and how to write them.
  • Training Your Employees

    Organizations that train and develop employees are investing in their human capital.  This investment will deliver returns through improved performance, increased productivity, and improve morale. Training and development is executed to meet many company needs, and often dedicated training professionals are tasked with these duties. Training and developing employees, however, is everyone’s job; sometimes the best trainers are the experts who do the job every day. This course will describe basic concepts about organizational training and development.
  • Interviewing & Hiring

    Recruiting, assessing, and hiring new employees are some of the more important functions a manager does. A poor hiring decision can be expensive and has a negative impact on team productivity and moral. However, hiring the right person can have a positive short term impact, when the new hire contributes to the organization, and a long term impact as this employee develops and helps the company grow.
