Course Description

Whether you're looking to change your HR strategy or you want to know more about benefits and compensation, "HR Benefits and Compensation" is for you.  With eight lessons on how to manage current and future benefits questions and compensation needs, you will be able to quickly understand the basics and apply new strategies in the workplace.


The lessons include the following:
 
  • The Importance of Compensation and Benefits
  • What Compensation and Benefits Are
  • Following HR Regulations
  • Organizational HR Strategies
  • Benefits of a Needs Assessment
  • Managing Policies, Programs, and Activities
  • Organizational Responsibilities
  • What Small Businesses Should Know

Many companies today now realize that the more they focus on benefits and compensation, the more they will be able to attract the right talent – and keep the talent they already have.  By performing needs assessments, organizations can begin to identify their unique needs by finding the gaps in their strategies. 


In addition, you will learn about how these strategies and ideas apply to smaller businesses that may not have the same resources available as larger companies.  By simply looking at their organization in a different way, smaller businesses can change the way their benefit and compensation packages are structured.

 

"HR Benefits and Compensation" is a course that is designed for those who are looking to gain a basic understanding of compensation and benefits in support of organizational development and success.
