How To Write & Implement Human Resources Policies & Procedures

Why Attend

Writing human resources policies and procedures is both an art and a science. Historically, human resources departments have resorted to outsourcing this function to professionals who have specialized in this arena. This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to complete this challenging task in-house. If you still decide to outsource this activity, you will benefit from this course by learning how to ensure the policies and procedures produced by the third party are written in the right manner for your organization.
