Stocking the HR Toolkit

Community Futures offers HR Toolkit program to help small business implement quality human resource management practices.

In a recent local survey, nearly 30 per cent of businesses indicated that human resources (HR) is one of the most pressing issues they struggle with in their business.

To help this, Community Futures North Okanagan is offering an HR Toolkit program designed to provide useful tips to help small business and non-profits implement quality human resource management practices.

The workshop will run over the course of three Wednesdays, starting Jan. 18.

“Poor human resource planning can have long term effects. These can include unmotivated employees and higher staff turnover, and can put businesses at a disadvantage in the marketplace,” said Leigha Horsfield, business services co-ordinator at Community Futures.

The Toolkit sessions are practical and immediately applicable to the workplace. Some of the topics include: HR management and leadership assessments, workplace health and safety initiatives, performance management and recognition, employee hiring, retention, replacement and succession, compensation issues and opportunities, and the development of an HR policy manual.

Businesses will gain an understanding of how to actually put theory into action and will discover solutions for specific HR issues.
