Applied HR for Line Leaders (Cebu Campus)


The management of manpower, the most important asset, has been entrusted to every leader in the organization regardless of position or title. Such a responsibility is shared with the Human Resource (HR) Unit in order to achieve an effective utilization or maximization of the human asset within prescribed guidelines and policies. But such partnership has not been successful in many companies due to several factors, such as:

  • Lack of alignment and poor understanding of the responsibilities by the leaders;
  • Inadequate skills of leaders to implement HR systems;
  • Untimely or lack of communication of concerns between partners; and
  • Absence of trust and openness between HR and line leaders.

Applied HR for Line Leaders intends to respond to all these difficulties from the point of view of officers, managers, supervisors, and team leaders. By providing the necessary skills and clear understanding of the roles, a harmonious working relationship will be attained. This will benefit the leaders, team members, and organization as a whole. 

Who should attend

This program is designed for line executives, managers, supervisors, and team leaders, who work hand in hand with HR to implement its systems, policies, and procedures. HR personnel who design and monitor policies may also attend to have a clearer understanding of the responsibilities and challenges of line leaders.

  1. Apply the critical guidelines for interviewing applicants;
