Training for your Business

The most effective method to ensure your workforce protects your business is to provide them the tools, resources, and support they need to be successful.  Embedded in the concept of tools is training, both initial training when the employee is hired, and refresher training as practices and regulatory obligations change over time.  Your business will experience a variety of risks and liabilities the moment you begin hiring a workforce.  To counter these risks you must proactively educate and train your managers and supervisors on compliant employment practices so they can be effective people leaders.  The result of the training is more effective managers and supervisors, and more effective and compliant employment practices.

Below are some of the training programs SymbianceHR offers to our clients.  If you would like to discuss delivering any of these training programs in your business please contact us today by calling Jennifer Cook, Director of Operations, at 888-343-7340 or by email at jennifer@symbiancehr.net.

We also create custom training programs that meet the specific and unique needs of your organization, and the topics can range from employment practices to project management and process excellence to leadership coaching and mentoring to effective communication and conflict management, and more.  Contact us for a free consultation to discuss your specific business goals.

Harassment Prevention

This training is designed to inform and transfer the knowledge of harassment prevention to both supervisors and employees to ensure comprehensive training is provided to the workforce and enhance compliance initiatives. Supervisors and employees will learn the facts about the different types of actions and behaviors in the workplace that are illegal and unprofessional, and what the difference is. They will be informed as to what rises to the level of illegal behavior, and what behaviors and actions are merely unacceptable and a violation of company policy.

This training is appropriate for all employees and supervisors of an organization, and should be established as a mandatory training for all new hires. Designed to be delivered to employees at all levels, this training is easily transferred into an annual refresher training to ensure continued compliance and to promulgate a workplace free of harassment and unacceptable behaviors.

Attendees will gain insight, knowledge, and strategies to implement and execute a compliant harassment prevention program that enhances morale and professional communication in the workplace while minimizing exposure and risk to litigation. This training also provides a post quiz to measure effectiveness of learning outcomes and for documentation and record keeping of employee training.

Second, you need to create an environment that is engaging and embraces your greatest asset, your employees.
