Departmental Training Services

February 4, 2014

Summary: Campus Human Resources (CHR) provides on-site training to department staff on a wide range of human resource-related topics. Department management may contract for customized workshops delivered at their work sites for groups of their employees on a variety of topics. 

Training intact workgroups in departments offers the unique benefit of enhancing the skills of all staff members at the same time. Campus Human Resources works exclusively with managers or department heads to provide training that is tailored to address the distinct needs of different university departments. In this way, all staff members share the same information and there is greater support for implementing the training content. The following are examples of training that can be offered to department staff:

  • Building Effective Work Teams
  • Building Productive Work Relationships
  • Communication
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Customer Service
  • Group Problem Solving
  • Handling Difficult Customers
  • Leadership
  • Meeting Management
  • Performance Appraisal
  • Supervisory Development
  • Time Management
  • Understanding and Developing Emotional Intelligence

A modest charge for campus clients is incurred for departmental training ($492 for a half-day, $843 for a whole day). As the group size increases, this works out to be less per trainee than sending individual trainees to regular program classes.
