The goal of this course is to prepare a nonprofit manager with effective human resources tools, policies and processes. The course is focused around the student developing human resources tools at each stage of an employee’s life cycle: hiring, onboarding, training, employee evaluations, corrective action and employee separation. The course centers around building components for two major projects: 1) developing a nonprofit manager’s employee supervision toolkit & manual and 2) evaluating an organization’s employee manual and policies to ensure they follow best practices.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Outline an organization’s hiring process.
