HR Training and Development Programs

Our HR training and development programs are designed to be engaging, meaningful, and relevant. Exude’s solutions are interactive and provide learners with knowledge, skills, and confidence. The facilitators focus on practical application. Each session includes tools and resources that participants can immediately use to impact their workplace interactions positively. We have training for leaders, managers, and all levels of staff.  We’ve indicated the ideal target audience for each course and can tailor the session to accommodate your specific audience needs.

Why Choose Exude Training?

Our training curriculum builds on years of experience in learning and development to cover the topics of HR, DEIB, Leadership, and Team development. Our content and sessions are always evolving and growing with market and regulatory changes. Our facilitators are well-versed and experienced in a variety of different topics and have delivered them in multiple ways to multiple organizations. They are knowledgeable and skilled at engaging learners and creating ways for them to apply their knowledge right away in the workspace. We also take the time to get to know our clients and understand what has already been tried before and what the goals of the training sessions are to achieve the most success. After the training is delivered, we’ll meet with you to conduct a debrief of what went well and what potential next steps could be to advance the learning. If needed, we can also provide customized training and advisory services, as well as help you develop a training program.

Exude Human Capital’s Training Programs

When facilitating our trainings, we always have the lens of inclusion and equity in mind. We believe Human Resources, Leadership, and DEIB all must play together, and that reflects in our training.

Harassment Prevention and Respectful Workplace Training

Professional conduct tied to treating people with dignity and civility is foundational to maintaining a positive workplace culture that positively influences relationships and productivity. Employers are accountable for regularly setting expectations of professional conduct to remind everyone of their role in maintaining a work environment free of harassment to protect both employees and the organization’s affirmative defense.

Target Audience: We can offer this to all staff, managers only, or combined with an added manager’s session.

Learning objectives of our Harassment Training course:

  • Accurately define harassment, including the various types of harassment.
  • Understand federal and state anti-harassment laws and how they are reflected in workplace policies.
  • List behaviors that constitute unlawful harassment and the impact those behaviors have on an individual, team, and business.
  • Understand your role in promoting and maintaining a safe, healthy, and productive work environment
  • Understand communication protocols in place for the escalation of instances of harassment.

HR for Non-HR Training

People leaders are expected to understand the connection between running a team/business and staying compliant with employment laws, policies, and processes. A manager’s or supervisor’s responsibility in using organizational tools is key to role clarity and successfully managing teams. This training uses real workplace examples to gain knowledge of employment law and HR best practices. The time is spent balancing an understanding of what they need to know versus how they can lean on an HR business partner in a way that is compliant, sets their employees up for success, and protects the organization.

Target Audience: All managers

Learning objectives of this course:

  • Understanding the role of the supervisor/manager and the importance of HR management.
  • Understand the key federal, state, and local laws that govern the workplace and their implications for the role of a people leader.
  • Know the triggers to listen for and how you can proactively be attentive to behaviors, decisions, or situations that require immediate action and/or escalation.
  • Effectively leverage the tools and resources available to you to lead in accordance with the company’s culture, values, and policies.

Interview Skills Training Program

Hiring is one of the most important responsibilities of a people leader. Whether the candidate is applying from outside the company or inside the company as a promotion or lateral move, having a strong interview process is the bedrock for building success. This session focuses on how to conduct interviews effectively and how to manage the interview process, from writing the job description to screening to final interviews and even making offers and dispositioning candidates. Through interactive exercises, leaders learn not only how to but also why in terms of what’s legal, what’s inclusive, and what’s equitable.

Target Audience: Leaders, managers, supervisors, and upcoming leaders

Learning objectives of the Interview Skills Training course:

  • Understand behavioral-based interviewing and how it influences the interviewing process.
  • Write job descriptions that are inclusive of requirements and detailed with role clarity.
  • Understand what legal parameters are in place around what questions can be asked and why.
  • Design interview questions around values and behaviors that are key to making this role successful.
  • Build an interview process that is inclusive and equitable for candidates and teammates.
  • Leverage what is learned in the interview process to build a strong onboarding plan.

We also offer custom training and Train the Trainer licenses. Please inquire for further information.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the value of Facilitated Training vs E-learning Training?

E-learning is typically created as a one-size-fits-all approach with little to no customization for your organization. It’s also typically self-managed. This provides an opportunity for teams to not fully embrace the learning and quickly go through it rather than apply the concepts and have a dialogue about the practical applications of the topic. While e-learning can be cost-effective, it usually doesn’t produce as much learning success as facilitated training does. Facilitated training takes into account your organization’s culture and finds ways to connect the dots to your people and needs. It also forces the team to participate and engage in the content.

What is the duration of a training class?

It depends on the topic and training delivery. Most trainings are 2-3 hours per session.

What is the training process?

After our discovery session, we will have an intake meeting so you can share more about the objectives for the training. Then we will share with you our approach and make sure we’re hitting the marks you believe we need. If it’s an in-person or virtual training session, there will be interaction, which usually includes breakout sessions and dialogue to engage the learners and encourage their input and perspectives. Once the training is over, we conduct a quick survey and have a debrief session with you to help you come up with some next steps.

What’s the platform used for virtual training?

Our virtual trainings are facilitated via Zoom, where we can host a variety of annotation tools and include breakout rooms and team engagement.

Why is there a limit on the number of learners per session?

In our experience, we believe this is the number that allows for the most successful facilitation and where the learners feel the most comfortable. The number can be lower, but if the number goes higher, it causes the session to feel overwhelming, and you may not have the participation or attention you’d like. Especially for sessions that are interactive, it becomes challenging when there are too many in one group. If you have more participants, we can do multiple sessions or have multiple facilitators for additional fees.

Can we just purchase the content for our own facilitators to facilitate?

We do offer Train the Training Licenses. Please inquire further for more information.

What is the facilitator’s background?

Our Exude Human Capital facilitators have very diverse backgrounds, having worked in many different industries, levels, and sizes of companies. They’ve facilitated all different topics and organizations, bringing with them expertise and experience that allows them to share best practices with our clients. Our facilitators will create a safe and engaging space for the learners while giving them tools they can start using right away.

What types of companies will Exude support?
