As business environments increase in complexity, the lines between different business functions continue to blur. To remain a strong asset to your business, it is important to cultivate a broad range of value-added skills. Today, the most coveted business leaders are those with an agile base of cross-disciplinary knowledge and abilities.

CPAs and finance and accounting professionals can boost their career trajectory by cultivating their abilities to look beyond the numbers. Taking a big-picture approach and gaining a deeper understanding of the “people” side of the business, including disability management, employment standards and total rewards or harassment policies, is an invaluable asset in the current business climate.

In this two-day certificate program, participants will leverage critical knowledge of the HR function to increase collaboration and cross-functionality within their organizations and lead their businesses (and careers) to new heights.

  • Effectively coach team members and manage challenging employees
