Join Catherine Mattice Zundel for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Administrative Human Resources.
- Thanks so much for joining me on this journey as we talked about the fundamentals of Human Resources. Now that you've completed the course, you should be able to build trust with your employees, author an awesome corporate policy handbook, and stay compliant with all of your record keeping. You should also be able to recruit, interview and hire, the right talent for your organization, and partner with your managers and supervisors to help employees grow. Unfortunately you may also have to discipline employees along the way, but now you've got the tools you need.
The resources available to you beyond this course are virtually endless. A quick internet search of any HR topic will yield a wealth of results. That said, one great place to start is the Society for Human Resource Management, or SHRM. This national group at www.shrm.org has a wealth of knowledge available, and I also recommend joining a local chapter for the networking and mentorship. Your own state likely has a strong HR group that can help with compliance too, and any government agency enforcing employment laws has information available too as well.
Each time a human issue happens, you'll have to do research on the right answer because nothing is ever black and white. I am so excited for you to have taken this step in learning more about HR. Human Resources is truly one of the most valuable assets to an organization because it is responsible for the growth and development of the people who make the business thrive. You are a big part of your organization's success, and I know you can do it.
