UNA Credential in Human Resources (online)

UNA’s Credential in Human Resources (HR) gives you the tools—and expert advice in how to use them—to implement best practices in HR at your nonprofit. The course, delivered via Zoom, also includes a review of how your HR policies need adapt to new laws in response to COVID-19 as well as a framework for staying current as everything in the HR landscape continues to evolve.

Course Description and Learning Objectives

People are your most important asset. To attract and retain quality employees and volunteers, your nonprofit must follow effective and fair leadership practices. Human Resources is one of nine courses in the UNA Credential Program designed to provide you with the resources you need to make an even greater impact.

This course provides nonprofit leaders with practical and actionable skills for developing high-performing agencies. Successful completion of the course will help you:

  • Become current on the impact of COVID-19 on employment practices, legal issues, and moving forward with the next normal.
  • 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.
