Understanding Human Resources in the Workplace

Human resources, within a business, typically refer to a management team whose primary goal is to organize and manage the needs and concerns of staff members.

The human resource department will often deal with various matters including, but not limited to:

  • Compensation
  • Vacation and time-off
  • Workplace safety
  • Employee conflicts and concerns
  • Employee health and wellness
  • Employee benefits
  • Employee performance and motivation
  • Hiring and recruitment

The role of human resources management is to create and maintain a positive workplace culture that is both accommodating to its employees and conducive to the success of the business. Often the HR manager will work as a liaison between employees and those in more executive roles.

Having trusted human resources is especially important in businesses that operate from the top-down. Ensuring that employees have a space to air their concerns and grievances will increase employee retention and build the company a good reputation.

HR Training for Every Business

While the existence of a human resources department may only be required for companies of significant size, at Suzanne Desrosiers Professional Corporation, we believe that all businesses can benefit from human resources training.

Equipping your upper management team with the skills to successfully address the needs of staff members will promote communication in the workplace, helping your business grow and thrive in the future.

Having human resource training, however, is about more than just making employees feel supported. There are various labor laws regarding how workers are treated by management in the workplace. Any slip up can put the reputation and, in some cases, the existence of your company at risk.

A single mistake in dealing with an employee can expose your organization to costly litigation or a substantial settlement. This is because, oftentimes, it is not possible to backtrack once a human resources decision has been made.

Protect the integrity of your workplace by investing in human resource training.

HR Training & Resources

In addition to providing legal advice on Employment Law related matters to both federally governed employers such as First Nations, airlines and banks and provincially governed employers, our law firm also provides Human Resources training/courses to Upper Management by way of in person and online seminars and workshops in various HR related areas.

Not all businesses are big enough to warrant the hiring of a Human Resources Professional. The task is often left to upper management such as the owner, the executive director, the manager, or the Band manager, whose workload is already strained from managing the business. Often, they do not have all the skills and the knowledge required to deal with employees and human resources issues. Unknowingly, they can quickly get themselves in hot water simply by the manner in which they chose to deal with an employee. Therefore, it is important to invest in HR Training and Development for Upper Management so that when faced with a HR situation in the workplace, a business’ upper management will know if they can handle the problem themselves or if they should reach out for help from a lawyer who specializes in that type of work before making a faux pas.

Human Resources Training and Development

Our HR Training Courses for Upper Management provide participants with practical information based on real case studies which set out the fact situations of the case in question and the Court decision as it relates to that fact situation. Your management team will acquire the necessary tools and knowledge to know when they should reach out to a lawyer before taking a step in order to avoid common pitfalls.

Our Human Resources Management Course for your Upper Management team is geared to both federally governed employers such as First Nations, airlines and banks and provincially governed employers.
