HR Fundamentals: 2017

Fundamentals of Human Resources – Winnipeg: 2017
Elevate your HR management knowledge and skills

Are you a non-profit organizational leader? Join us for Fundamentals of Human Resources, a three-day course presented by the Manitoba Federation of Non-Profit Organizations (MFNPO).

This course was originally announced and offered in the fall of 2016. It sold out in two days! We are pleased to offer it again to meet the demand.

  • The course will be held on March 22, 23, and 31, 2017 (8:30-4:30 each day, with a lunch break).
  • The fee is only $300.
  • Class size will be limited to 20 students
  • Register by March 15, 2017.

Recognizing that many non-profit organizations cannot afford to hire designated human resources managers, this program is designed to help Executive Directors and other organizational leaders provide more effective human resources management within their organizations. The program is comprehensive, interactive, moderately priced, and professionally facilitated.

With expanded in-house human resources expertise, non-profit organizations in Manitoba can improve decision-making, elevate their overall performance, and help to develop a stronger sector for the benefit of all Manitobans.

Fundamentals of Human Resources is based on materials originally produced by the HR Council for the Nonprofit Sector, work that is now housed within Community Foundations of Canada. The Manitoba Federation of Non-Profit Organizations and Community Foundations of Canada are collaborating as partners in this new initiative in Manitoba.
