Training, by its definition means, preparing or guiding any person to perform a certain task. The same implies for HR personnel as well. As we all know, HR is an integral function in any organization, which supports it to get the right people in, grow and develop them, and eventually manage talent so that the organization achieves the desired objectives through its people.
It is important then that the people in HR, who make business success possible for the organization, are appropriately and adequately trained to perform their day-to-day functions. In fact, such is their job responsibilities that they do require certain training to handle their job efficiently. The trainings provided are mostly HR domain related, which could be on various techniques of managing people, understanding employee related issues that encompasses counseling and other best practices across the industry, and orientation on various HR systems enabling them to be more efficient in executing their respective jobs.
HR training in most organizations is typically around the behavioral and knowledge modules. Most of these cover areas like recruitment and retention, leadership, team building, conflict resolution, psychological assessments, time management, risk management, and mandatory training in quality certifications that the company is vying for.
