Manager Training

The fastest easiest way to create manager training

If you provide manager training, you can essentially delegate HR to your managers by giving them the self-serve tools they need to manage and support their people.

ConnectsUs HR provides an instant but effective way to provide your managers with quality manager training.  The premium HR documents and templates are written in plain-English so they're easy to follow.  It's manager training your managers will actually read!

The tools were developed as a family of documents made specifically to create manager training. They are formatted and written consistently and connect to one another for a ready-to-assemble solution for manager training. Use what you need, as you need it.  

And it's cost effective too - which we recognize is a key consideration for small business manager training.
