Why Is HR Training Important to the Success of a Business?

HR training is key to your business's success because a well-prepared HR team ensures your organization has the right people in the right positions at the right time. A well-prepared HR team has a solid understanding of employment law and knows when to reach out to an employment lawyer when issues arise that exposes your organization to liability. Without proper training your HR team can make mistakes that could cost the organization thousands of dollars in legal damages without realizing. In Human Resources, once you have taken a step, it is very hard if not impossible to take it back. The damage is done.

Effective HR training also allows your business to anticipate and prepare for changes in the legal landscape or industry that could impact your workforce. Additionally, proper HR training can help reduce costs associated with turnover, as well as improve employee engagement and retention.

By proactively addressing potential issues, HR can create a more stable and engaged workforce, which ultimately contributes to the overall success of your business.

What Are the 3 P’s of Human Resource Management?

The 3 P’s of human resource management refer to the three key components that are essential for effective and successful HR practices. These components are People, Policies, and Processes.


People are at the core of any organization, and human resource management is responsible for attracting, developing, and retaining talented individuals who can contribute to the business's success. This includes creating a positive work culture, promoting inclusivity, and providing opportunities for personal and professional growth.


Policies serve as guidelines for employees to follow in order to maintain a productive and harmonious workplace environment. These policies should be fair, consistent, and in compliance with legal standards. HR professionals are responsible for regularly reviewing policies to ensure they align with current laws and regulations.


Processes refer to the systems in place for managing and organizing employee-related tasks such as hiring, performance evaluations, and training. Effective processes are essential for streamlining operations and ensuring all employees are treated fairly. HR plays a critical role in developing efficient processes that align with the organization's goals and values.

The training programs at Suzanne Desrosiers Professional Corporation help HR professionals understand the legal landscape involved in managing people, creating and adhering to policies, and designing effective HR processes. With our help, your human resource management practices can help your organization achieve its objectives and create a positive work environment for all employees.

Practical and Legal Considerations to Conflict Resolution

Workplace disputes happen. Sometimes you have a legal obligation to address the dispute, such as when harassment or discrimination occurs. However, there are other times where the law does not apply and you must practically address the dispute, such as cases of a personality conflict. Our training addresses both situations. The legal considerations are taught by one of our employment lawyers. The practical considerations are taught by a consulting firm that is well versed on conflict resolution.
