What is your training deficit costing you: $28,000, $300,000 or more?

Every week, iHR Australia comments on workplace issues and many of the items we are seeing in the news can be attributed to poor management or HR practice.

Whether we are talking about the boss whose "honest mistake" led to a $28,000 back payment to a worker, the $300,000 redundancy mistake of a large bank or the human costs of workplace bullying; errors or ignorance can be costly.

Through its work with organisations providing HR support services, workplace investigations and inquiries, iHR Australia sees time and again that lack of knowledge and awareness are often contributing factors when problems arise.

Reducing the risk of mistakes being made starts with comprehensive training; especially for managers and those dealing with our most valuable resource: people. Being proactive and providing effective learning and support for staff will help to prevent problems associated with poor management and will enable staff to deal with any issues that occur.

iHR Australia is now offering new courses to help your organisation ensure managers and those with human resources responsibilities have the skills and information they need to be effective:
