Online Managing within the Law Training Course
Effective management is vital to a successful company. Too often, individuals who have excelled in an organization due to a specific skill set are promoted to managerial positions before having adequate management training (or any at all).
Consequently, many managers lack the interpersonal skills, sensitivity, legal awareness and professionalism necessary for effective management. The result can be disastrous: endless conflicts, low morale and productivity, wasted talent, high and costly turnover, and lawsuits based on privacy violations, harassment and wrongful termination, among other things.
As the workplace has grown more complex, the need for managers to understand the legal ramifications of their decisions and actions has increased dramatically. Organizations cannot afford for managers to learn through trial and error; comprehensive training is needed to prepare managers for the challenges of the modern workforce.
