Reference letter training
Reference letters (processing, analytics, wording)
Nowadays, drafting reference letters is a routine job for HR staff. However, the challenge here is to create a reference letter which is, on the one hand, legally compliant, and is, at the same time, adapted to the individual employee. A reference letter also serves as the “business card” of the company.
Goal and content:
With our training we would like to familiarize HR department staff with the topic of reference letters and develop specific guidance for their daily work.
Potential training contents:
In close cooperation with you, we will develop a target-oriented roadmap regarding approach and a time-efficient process, covering everything from the employee’s request for a reference letter to its final handover.
