HR Fundamentals is an online course designed to provide you with fundamental information about some basic HR functions of which all managers must be aware.  While it was designed as a part of the Lead on Purpose management training, it can be taken as a stand-alone or refresher course.

  1. Employment Law
  2. Recruitment and Selection
  3. Performance Management, and
  4. Labor Relations

The modules may be taken all at once, or one at a time.  At the end of each module there is a review which requires a score of 80% or better to continue to the next module.  Once the entire HR Fundamentals has been completed you will automatically be issued a completion/pass certificate for your training records.
