County Wexford Chamber Skillnet ‘HRing for Managers’

Following feedback from HR Leaders, we have recognised a need for businesses to provide training for their Managers in HR processes.  You have told us how you need your managers to have an awareness of procedures, knowledge of language and legislation and an ability to address different situations that arise through the life cycle of an employee.

We have listened and come up with a solution.

HRing for Managers is a HR Series of 5 individual Workshops:

1. Recruitment & Onboarding
2. Performance Management & Employee Engagement
3. Employee Relations & Mediation
