HR Brain Trust, Inc.




In addition to our customized training, development, and HR services, HR Brain Trust offers the following training series.

Discriminatory Harassment and Bullying Prevention

California law requires all employers of 5 or more employees to provide 1 hour of sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training to nonsupervisory employees and 2 hours of prevention training to supervisors and managers within six months of hire or promotion and then again once every two years. Many other states have adapted similar requirements for training. Even if you are not doing business in California or one of the growing number of states which require Discriminatory Harassment Prevention Training, it is wise to provide it to your employees and managers. There are laws at both the state and federal levels prohibiting discrimination in the workplace and employees and managers are in a position not only to create exposure through their own actions, but also to be the best line of defense when the problems are being caused by other employees. Take time to make sure all your staff understand what your expectations are for proper workplace behavior.


Basic Employment Law

Discriminatory Harassment is only once aspect of the workplace where poorly trained managers may create exposure. We recommend that all managers be familiar with some basics of employment law. Issues such as rules regarding Meal and Rest Breaks and Employee Overtime and Timekeeping are ones your managers will deal with every day. If they don’t know the rules – they won’t know when those rules have been broken. That can mean headaches down the road.


Personality Assessment and Understanding Personal Interaction Style (4 hours)

This workshop guides participants through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory. The process will help participants see how seemingly random variation in behavior is actually due to consistent basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment. This understanding can be applied and carried through the other courses in the series, used as a launchpad for individual or teach coaching sessions or both!


Performance Management

All managers should know how to effectively improve the performance of their team. If Performance Management is synonymous with “employee discipline” in your company, then it is time to seriously consider some training for your managers. Performance Management includes learning how to communicate, coach and mentor your employees. Done well, those discipline issues will be few and far between.

The best HR partner will be one who will work with you to determine the needs for your particular organization. In addition to the programs HRBT delivers regularly to clients, we also provide custom developed courses for clients with unique needs.
