Fundamentals of Human Resources: Winnipeg Winter Session 2018

A series of training modules to elevate your HR management knowledge and skills

The Manitoba Federation of Non-Profit Organizations is once again offering Fundamentals of Human Resources, a six-part training program for the non-profit sector. It will offered in Winnipeg.

MFNPO has offered the course several times in 2016-2017. It sold old quickly each time. Register early to avoid disappointment.

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 will be offered in Winnipeg in 2018.

  • Class size is limited to 25 participants exclusively from the non-profit sector.
  • There will be a modest amount of work required after each session.
  • Winnipeg winter session dates: January 10, 11, 12, 2018 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pmRegistration deadline January 3, 2018.

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 initiative in Manitoba.

Module 4:  Health and Safety – Workplaces that Work

Module 5:  Training, Learning, and Development

Module 6:  HR Planning and Wrap-up
