Derek Stockley provides specific HRM training in job search, recruitment and selection, career development and performance review. The training can be for small and large business, companies, government and community organisations. It can be for employees, team leaders and/or managers.

Job search and selection training for employees

Some organisations may be undergoing structural change which impacts on a significant number of employee positions. Consequently, training to support employees through the changes may be a very helpful human resources management initiative.

Training may cover the processes for internal appointment, or alternatively, the strategies for seeking employment in the open job market.

Program length will vary, depending on the situation. Each situation has to be assessed and a program developed and formulated based on the training needs of the intended participants.

Participants can range from general staff to senior executives in all disciplines.

Recruitment and selection for team leaders, managers and human resources personnel

This training relates to the process of recruiting and selecting employees. It can cover all the steps involved, or it can focus specifically on the "selection" interview or process.

Typical programs are one or two day courses. If appropriate, some may have a blended learning design, combining "training room" learning with other activities.

Performance review and development

This training revolves around managing performance.

A typical aspect is the various aspects of participation in a formal performance review system, which may have a variety of names: staff development scheme, career development scheme, performance appraisal system, performance management, etc. This type of training is fully explained at: performance management training.

However, the broader issue of performance, particularly dealing with poor performance or performance problems, can also be an issue for team leaders, co-ordinators and managers.

Managing human performance is a key leadership and management task. Sometimes, employees and staff are not performing at the optimum levels. There can be a wide range of reasons for this. It takes specific skills to identify the problem areas and work with staff to overcome the issue in order to reach acceptable performance standards.

Each program relates to the needs of the group. A heavy emphasis is placed on activities and exercises designed to develop and refine skills.
