Charleston, SC (PRWEB) July 17, 2014
Now HRCI approved, PeopleMatter announces its upcoming schedule of free educational webinars. Designed to provide HR professionals with in-depth training on specific challenges unique to the hourly workforce, the webinars are led by subject matter experts and followed by a Q&A session. PeopleMatter, an approved HRCI provider, is the largest provider of workforce management technology specifically designed for the service industry.
HRCI certification, created by the HR Certificate Institute, is the highest standard in the world for HR professionals, with more than 135,000 HR professionals certified across 100 countries. The HR Certification Institute is the global leader in developing rigorous exams to demonstrate competence, mastery and real-world application of forward-thinking HR practices, policies and principles.
HR professionals who hold the HRCI certification must recertify their designation every three years by completing sixty hours of HR-related continuing professional development activities or by retaking the exam and successfully passing it again. PeopleMatter’s informative webinars provide HR leaders in the hourly space with training that not only helps them achieve recertification, but also equips them with action-oriented tips and best practices they can implement in their companies.
PeopleMatter will host HRCI credit-approved webinars throughout the year, starting with five this summer:
“4 Secrets to More Efficient, More Effective Restaurant Training: How Bruegger’s Bagels Scored Higher Efficiency, Cost Savings and Customer Satisfaction with Online Training and How You Can, Too.”
“The Ultimate Employee Screening Series: The 4 Must-Run Pre-Hire Screenings for Higher Compliance, Applicant Quality and Cost Savings”.
Successful completion of the four webinar series earns attendees 2.0 HRCI credit hours.
Part 1: Background Checks
Employee theft and fraud costs businesses $50 billion each year. Learn how to reduce your risk with background screenings.
Part 2: I-9 Verification
High employee volume, turnover rates and percentages of immigrant workers make I-9 compliance difficult in hourly workforces. Learn what new I-9 verification trends and immigration laws mean for your business and how you can stay compliant.
Part 3: Assessments
Not hiring the wrong people is just as important as hiring great ones in the service industry, especially since one in thirty retail workers will be arrested for workplace theft. Find out how scientifically proven assessment tests can weed out risky candidates and identify best-fit hires.
Part 4: Tax Credits
One in five hourly workers qualifies for tax credits, averaging $1,200 per new hire. Eighty percent of employers, however, do not file for available tax credits. Learn how to save your company money with tax credits.
Program ID information will be provided to receive HRCI credit after successfully viewing the webinars.
