UNA Credential in Human Resources overview:

Nonprofits recognize that people are their most important asset. They utilize effective leadership and fair practices to attract and retain employees and volunteers.

Keep your employees and volunteers on the right side of the law. This training course provides nonprofit leaders with practical and actionable skills for developing high-performing agencies.

  • Gain a comprehensive understanding of key employment and discrimination laws relevant to an organization’s size, and how to implement practices to follow those laws.
  • Learn how to create, review, and revise an organization’s personnel handbooks, policies, and practices to ensure compliance with applicable laws.
  • Gain critical insight into employee recruitment best practices, learn new methods to retain and motivate employees, and leave with a toolkit for performance appraisals that drive performance.

This course is one of nine UNA Credential offerings. Each course is designed to move your organization to the next level in adopting and following best practices--resulting in a vibrant, sustainable nonprofit. We encourage you to invite staff, volunteers, and board members to accompany you. Expanded participation broadens perspective, builds cooperation, and lightens the workload. UNA's Credential in Human Resources provides state-of-the-art information condensed into two days of classroom instruction taught by our Subject Matter Expert, Kathleen D. Weron. You’ll take this deeper understanding back to your organization and begin to apply it to your policies and practices. Then you'll reconvene at your consulation with our Subject Matter Expert to review your practices and ask questions specific to your organization. Once you’ve documented best-practices at your organization, your organization earns the Human Resources Badge.
