A look behind the curtain . . .

Hi there! I'm Candice Elliott, a community-drive HR Strategist. I've been fascinated with the magic of business almost my whole adult life. I started my first successful business at 23. My degrees are in Anthropology & Philosophy (BA) and Human Resources and Labor Relations (MBA). And now, 15+ years of working with businesses later, I'm honored to help entrepreneurs like you create sustainable management systems based on your unique worldview.

So. . . Why HR Building Blocks you may be asking? Well, I got to a point in my business's growth where I couldn't take on any more one-on-one clients but still had lots of interest from folx who wanted a way to learn and grow their HR chops. These were mainly small business owners or new managers with limited resources and time. So I built this course for you! It's self paced, so you can go at your own speed when you have time. You can choose to do all the Building Blocks, or you can pick and choose which ones you want to learn most. There are lots of templates available that you can customize to your own needs, and I provide resources to build your own policies and procedures based on best practices.

I have dreams of doing a more in-depth course with a group of you in the future. I would love to be able to dive deep with you all into HR super nerd-dom and work together to solve the issues you are facing.

What's included in

Preparing for the Unexpected?

In Preparing for the Unexpected we do a deep dive into the more common unexpected events that employers encounter. This includes when employees give notice, administering medical leave and emergency preparation. We also look into layoffs and things to consider if you may go that direction.

This building block includes some of the foundational elements you need when start responding to the unexpected. This includes best practices for accepting resignations. We also cover the foundations of administering medical leave and provide sample Leave of Absence Request forms. Lastly, we provide a sample Emergency Action Plan that prepares for power outages, fire, earthquake, flood and other unexpected events.

Once you have completed this course you will be prepared to handle resignations and ends of employment. You will know what your requirements are related to medical leaves of absence, and you will be well on your way to having your own emergency response plan.
