Over the past decade, businesses and non-profit 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.
This online 12-week program offers working professionals the opportunity to study the role of HR professionals within the organization, including the professional’s duty of care, ethical, legal, and philosophical frameworks, and responsibilities as a driver of change in an organization. Our online learning management system is a flexible, interactive portal that offers online discussions, practical exercises, and collaborative activities that can be completed when it fits into your schedule. Keep up with compliance laws so you can become a driver of change in your organization.
