Dallas, TX (PRWEB) June 30, 2006
BMH announced today that it will sponsor the first in a series of professional development courses to help clients better manage their human resources responsibilities. The first Internet class will cover the creation or refinement of a company policy manual.
“Many of our clients are smaller organizations, and their HR staff wears a lot of hats,” stated Emile Bonnecaze, a principal at BMH. “Some are the sole person in Human Resources, or have a small team of support people. Others have the even greater challenge of juggling both HR and Payroll duties. Many have complained about being too overwhelmed in basic, mundane chores to focus on any particular area of responsibility.”
BMH’s goal in offering this series of courses is to help clients concentrate on and master a specific job function. Upon completion of the first course, a user should be able to build or refine a policy manual – an absolute necessity when dealing with their company’s position on the employment relationship. As we all know, poorly-written or non-existent policies can wreck havoc and possibly put the company in a legal liability situation, and as the HR “guardian,” no one wants to put themselves in that position.
Topics to be covered include employment policies (former employees, nepotism, EEO and sexual harassment, etc.); compensation (overtime rules, bonuses, garnishments, loans, etc.); time off (PTO, holidays, weather emergencies, etc.); employee relations (performance reviews, conflict of interest, voice mail, Internet access, etc.); separation (voluntary/involuntary, reduction in force, etc.); and general policies such as acceptance of gifts, use of company credit cards and more.
Register now to participate in this valuable course. Cost is $150 per webinar connection. Two offerings will be provided:
Wednesday, July 19, 2 p.m.
Thursday, July 20, 2 p.m.
