Description

The goal of this course is to prepare a nonprofit manager with effective human resources tools, policies and processes. The course is focused around the student developing human resources tools at each stage of an employee’s life cycle: hiring, onboarding, training, employee evaluations, corrective action and employee separation. The course centers around building components of the final project – a nonprofit manager’s employee supervision toolkit & manual.

This course is intended to be used by organizations to help train new managers in best practices in order to avoid any potential legal issues for HR. The intent is that this free module could be assigned as professional development as part of a “new manager training” to complement any training already being done by the organization.

After learning the key processes and best practices, students will then create a nonprofit manager’s employee supervision toolkit manual synthesizing practical human resources tools.
