Update on the School’s Training Opportunities for HR Practitioners

The School of Labor and Employment Relations has continued to grow its management outreach activities through its Academy for Human Capital Development (AHCD). Our experience to date reinforces our belief that our programs can be a useful resource for LER alumni and others looking for effective training and development interventions.

The School of Labor and Employment Relations has continued to grow its management outreach activities through its Academy for Human Capital Development (AHCD). Our experience to date reinforces our belief that our programs can be a useful resource for LER alumni and others looking for effective training and development interventions.

In February we conducted an additional set of workshops for Foxdale Village, a retirement community in State College. The title of the course was, Supervision: Helping People Work Better. The content focused on the various ways in which managers and supervisors could improve their coaching skills.

This summer we created and delivered a two-day workshop for ICS, Inc., an executive recruitment firm, titled Promoting Employee Engagement. The workshop was delivered to managers in both New York City and Chicago.

If your job responsibilities include training and development, please consider using the services of the Academy.  We offer great on-site programs at a reasonable cost and would be happy to discuss how we can help with your training needs.  We have the capability to do programs on a wide range of topics.  Below is just a sample of the on-site training programs that are currently available. 

  • Introduction to Supervision: Leadership
  • Introduction to Supervision: Coaching
  • Counseling and Discipline
  • Managing People
  • Win/Win Negotiations
  • Facilitation
  • Conducting Workplace Investigations 

You will find course outlines at http://ler.la.psu.edu/profdev/professional-development.

If you are interested in our training programs please contact Tom Hogan (tch12@psu.edu) or Antone Aboud (aja19@psu.edu).

One of the additional services that AHCD routinely provides to students, faculty, alumni and guests is a series of webinars conducted throughout the academic year. The webinars are designed to provide non-credit opportunities for participants to become familiar with critical issues associated with human resources and employment relations. This past year the Academy conducted six such programs, delivering content to as many as 54 participants (see below).
