You have probably heard of 'Accounting for non Accountants' - well, this is HR for non HR people. This programme is designed for line managers or those for whom HR is only one significant part of their role.

HR 101: HR for non HR People is a jargon free introduction for those who have people responsibilities to help them recognise and understand good people practice which they can apply to everyday people management situations in their teams and organisations.

Topics covered in this one day programme include:

  • Resourcing (recruitment and selection)
  • Learning and Development (training)
  • Performance Management (appraisal)
  • Change Management (making change happen)
  • Legal Compliance and Employment Relations (staying on the right side of NZ Employment Law)

A workbook containing information and exercises is provided. The programme is informed by leading edge research and was fully revised and updated in 2017.

Terms & Conditions

All of our professional development courses are subject to our terms and conditions.

Travelling from out of town?

In response to member demand we are introducing a trial offering for our 2019 March course offerings.

Our new Travel Discount is available for those members in provincial centres who have to travel to attend one of our professional development courses.

As a rule of thumb if you have to travel far enough to book a flight/hotel room to be able to attend the course, HRINZ will offer you a course discount to assist with these costs: $250 for 1 day courses. To enquire about this discount or if you're unsure about eligibility please contact us.

This has been introduced as an initiative which will hopefully enable our members in regional areas to attend our excellent workshops! We will evaluate this offer in March to see whether we can extend it into other courses in 2019.

The travel discount is not available for non-members.
