Finally, you will address various theories regarding employee morale, organizational behavior and group dynamics. If you are interested in changing or advancing your career, this course will give you an overview of this growing field. Introduction to Employee Benefits Employee benefits are an increasingly important and complex segment of your organization's compensation portfolio. Now you have access to the latest information relating to employee benefits--information that will help you make better decisions and maximize your benefit choices. You will begin with a comprehensive survey of the complete range of major employee benefits. Then you'll be introduced to the skills of effective planning, implementation and communication of employee benefit programs, including funding, plan management and administration, as well as brokerage selection and coordination. You will expand your knowledge of your benefit options, such as major medical (health and dental, HMO's), disability plans and pensions, while exploring new benefit and compensation strategies.

You will gain an understanding of your role and responsibilities as a trainer, as well as the practical hands-on knowledge needed to implement a successful program through lectures, classroom discussions, and developing and presenting an actual training session in class. This course is excellent for training and human resources specialists as well as operating managers with significant human resources development responsibilities. Leading Successful Organizational Change Managing change in an organization is a dynamic process. Effective change maximizes the alignment between an organization's strategies, structure, systems and culture. It requires an understanding of the systemic interrelationships among these factors and how changes in one can affect another. This course focuses on planning and implementing change in organizations, with an emphasis on the role of leadership within an organization. Participants examine the role of leadership and the competencies and skills required of individuals who initiate, manage, and are affected by change.

You'll also learn to spot, correct and avoid the most common writing pitfalls, and gain valuable experience analyzing, writing and revising a wide spectrum of business documents. From a simple interoffice memo to a twenty-page business proposal, learn how to put good business writing to work for you.

Added to these challenges is the constantly shifting diversity of the workplace, where coworkers cope with generational, gender, age and cultural differences.
