HR – more than just hiring and firing!

Virtual Training Workshop:

Wednesday 17 April – 11am to 12.30 CET time

Most people only think of HR as the ones who look after the hiring and firing within an organisation, however it is so much more than that. We all want to work somewhere we feel proud of, and your employees are no different to you.

The majority of Jewish organisations in Europe are not fortunate enough to have a dedicated HR department, but someone within the organisation has to take care of HR issues. Whether you are that person, and whether you have some experience of HR or not, or even whether you simply want to understand how a modern approach to HR could benefit your organisation, then this workshop is for you.

Join Yesod Europe for a free virtual training workshop “HR – more than just hiring and firing!” with Bex Manning on Wednesday 17 April 11:00-12:30 CET. This workshop is aimed at Jewish community professionals in Europe.

This workshop will provide you with an overview of what you should be thinking about when it comes to the employees within your organisation and their employee lifecycle from recruitment and onboarding, to understanding employee engagement and supporting their wellbeing and development, to managing performance or absence.

This interactive workshop will:

  •            Provide you with an understanding of what is included in the lifecycle of an employee and your role within it
  •           Introduce the importance of employee engagement and what that means for you within your organisation
  •           What is important to employees and how to support their wellbeing and development
  •           What to consider when looking to manage performance or absence on an employee

For those interested in going into more depth, there will also be an offer of a follow-up course, looking at these issues in more detail.
