The curriculum for training newly-hired HR representatives got a revamp and several new faces are teaching the two-day class for new HR representatives.
The ConnectCarolina team sends a big thank you to Dina Sikora, Joey Landry, Maura Murphy, Tabitha Massey, and Bill Stockard, who were selected to be a part of the ConnectCarolina HR Train the Trainer program. They attended a special program to learn about training techniques and develop expertise on the materials. Through December, they’ll be teaching the two-day ConnectCarolina HR Representative Training, a mandatory course for new HR representatives to gain access to ConnectCarolina.
The addition of the volunteer trainers is freeing time for the ConnectCarolina training team to design more computer-based training combined with self-paced hands-on practice, reducing in-classroom time for computer-systems training to one day.
The new model for training came out of a partnership between the ConnectCarolina Change Management team and the Office of Human Resources to develop a weeklong, immersive process to learn all facets of the HR world at Carolina. Representatives are introduced to staff in the HR central offices, get introductions to HR policies and procedures and receive ConnectCarolina training. The new curriculum provides a common set of information for HR Representatives regardless of which school or department they support.
