The current epidemic situation takes many educational programs online.

“There are no restrictions on previous education, nor on available experience. If this area is completely new for the program’s listener, this is not a problem. On the contrary, this is a great opportunity to understand the prospects of HR for yourself - whether you like it or not”, - emphasizes the agency’s interlocutor.
For those who already work in HR, the program will help to learn and master new trends, establish contacts with other, possibly more experienced colleagues, and systematize existing knowledge.
What is the feature of the program
Practice and practice again! This, according to Anastasia, distinguishes the online course of TSU from many other similar programs.
“This is not only classical lectures or theoretical material. The program has a practice-oriented basis. This means that participants analyze a variety of situations and cases from Tomsk, Russian and international companies during trainings and discussions”, - she explains.
For companies that bring their employees to the program (and absolutely any business or organization can do this), such a practice can be of double benefit.
Firstly, employees will be able to use the experience of other market participants to solve future problems. And secondly, it is possible to put into practice - in the so-called "investigation" - the situation established in this team or company. A good opportunity to solve the case with the participation of third-party experts.
By the way, the experts of the program are not only experienced teachers of the Institute of Economics and Management of TSU, but also many practitioners from the HR sphere. For example, Elena Shinkevich, regional head of the group of internal structural unitsof the Tomsk branch of PJSC Sberbank.
It's possible to become a member of the advanced training program "Personnel Management of a Modern Organization" in a couple of clicks by sending an application to email@example.com. The organizers put everyone in a kind of waiting list and after recruiting a certain number of people announce the start of the course.
Training is conducted on a commercial basis, but in parallel with this, certain subsidies are provided for companies and certain categories of the population. Thus, women who are on maternity leave, as well as citizens over 50, will be able to upgrade their skills using budget funds.
Some companies will be able to receive a subsidy for the training of their employees at TSU. This opportunity has existed for more than a year within the framework of the national project “Labor Productivity and Employment Support”.
