Key HR Responsibilities

HR personnel are directly involved in the recruitment of new staff by placing advertisements and helping with the interview process, ensuring that the workplace reflects a diversity of people and and is non-discriminatory. Some Edinburgh training courses will focus on helping HR managers to review CVs and job applications and in putting the appropriate ones forward for managers to interview. They will then run background and police checks, obtain references and carry out any other procedures necessary, such as credit or drug checks.

Supporting organisational development with the right HR training

An HR department deals with pay, benefits, policies and training. It will ensure that holidays are paid, insurances are in place, illnesses covered and pension plans are operational. The HR department can also act as a point of arbitration for problems between managers and employees. When an employee leaves or retires it is the role of the HR department to make sure pay is up to date and any severance or retirement packages are in place. Attending an HR course in Edinburgh will train personnel in all of these vital areas.

An HR department also plays an important role in staff motivation and retention, through staff training as well as organising social and team building events to bond and encourage staff. Incentives such as reward packages and employee of the month awards, for example, will be part of the HR team's work.

Professional HR Courses and Qualifications in Edinburgh

Anyone living in the south of Scotland and wishing to develop their career in Human Resources will find plenty of opportunities for training courses in Edinburgh. These range from half day seminars to longer courses of six months to a year, leading to diplomas and certificates. Training courses will cover the needs of employees in businesses generally and more specifically for certain industries.

The courses offered in Edinburgh cover recruitment and retention, staff development, diversity and discrimination, health and safety, communication skills, the finances of pay and pensions and any relevant laws and legislations.
