Specialist seminars for HR managers

Specialist seminars for HR managers

Globalisation is increasing the demands placed on HR management teams. Excellent foreign language skills and intercultural awareness are essential. In addition, specific knowledge of contractual, legal and organisational issues relating to the integration of foreign employees is increasingly important.

Our executive team includes trainers with years of experience in HR management. They develop and carry out highly specific programs aimed at individual HR requirements. The focus is on interactive simulations and case studies, the direct exchange of experiences and best practice.

Interviews in English

Successful job interviews lead to appointing the right employees. It is critical to get to know the applicants as well as possible, identify their know-how, social skills as well as strengths and weaknesses, and to assess them accordingly.

In our English-language seminars, HR teams learn to:

  • Efficiently prepare and structure an interview
  • Formulate the right questions
  • Analyse the answers of the candidate
  • Conduct interviews over the telephone or via video conference

Appraisals in English

Conducting appraisals requires diplomacy and sensitivity. Where intercultural differences or the inappropriate choice of words could lead to misunderstandings and misinterpretations, we help you prepare your English appraisals with your foreign colleagues.

In our seminars you learn to:

  • Efficiently prepare and structure an employee appraisal
  • Create a positive atmosphere
  • Express criticism in the correct language and tone
  • React appropriately to requests, expectations and criticism from the employee

Relocation management

An increasingly mobile workforce is leading to an influx of international specialists relocating to Germany. 

Our trainers support HR managers in expanding their English vocabulary and helping them to smoothly integrate foreign employees and their families, making their transfer to Germany as pleasant as possible.

In our seminars, HR managers learn to:

  • Explain relocation contracts
  • Discuss benefits and incentive programs
  • Speak competently about visas, registration procedures, choice of schools and house-hunting
  • Explain the relocation package
  • Clearly and efficiently interact with relocators by telephone
Successful job interviews lead to appointing the right employees. It is critical to get to know the applicants as well as possible, identify their know-how, social skills as well as strengths and weaknesses, and to assess them accordingly.
