Managing compliance and risk in your organization
Over the past decade, business, government, and nonprofit organizations have faced increasing demands to comply with a myriad of government regulations in a rapidly changing legal landscape. Today, human resources professionals are responsible for the design, administration, and enforcement of many of the policies that address these regulations while ensuring compliance and managing risk for the organization. This program offers intensive, practice-based training for human resources professionals and their advisors in identifying and evaluating compliance requirements, while also being able to work with stakeholders to effectively implement compliance programs within their organizations.

I enrolled in Mitchell Hamline’s Human Resources Compliance Certificate to further my knowledge of the profession after specializing in talent acquisition and Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) compliance for seven years.
The format of the program was ideal, with online convenience and offering the ability to progress at my own pace, but my favorite part was learning from the instructors and my classmates. The cohort ranged from individuals new to the HR profession, to intermediary and experienced professionals. Our discussion posts challenged me to explain how I would respond to case study scenarios while also allowing me to read others’ strategies to mitigate risk and communicate policy in the same situations. Entering into the program when I did was especially valuable for me. Having had a specialized work experience, I wanted to determine or solidify my career path and then set new professional goals for myself, without changing occupations or leaving the established career and organization that has offered me so much opportunity.
