Human Resources Management and Assessing Staff Capacity (Sudan)

Date: 9 - 11 May 2017
Length: 3 days
Location: Khartoum, Sudan
Residential: No

About the Course:   

HR is an essential component of a humanitarian organisation, from ensuring that staff with the right expertise are recruited, through ensuring staff are managed and recompensed in fair and efficient ways and that their welfare is monitored and supported. Poor people management can lead to low motivation, poor performance and the loss of good staff. Each of these has a cost for the organisation and a negative impact on the quality of projects and on accountability to communities and to donors.

This is a three-day course that aims to develop the competencies needed to undertake HR for a humanitarian NGO in Sudan. Upon completion, participants will be able to demonstrate the essential skills and confidence to fulfil key HR responsibilities such as recruit and select staff, ensure staff receive a relevant induction, assess staff capacity and develop capacity building plans, facilitate objective setting and performance management processes, ensure HR policies, pay and benefits are effective in the situation, and where applicable contribute to the scaling down of a humanitarian programme.

Course Aim:
