Essentials introduces a myriad of prerequisite topics that serve as a common body of knowledge for DHHS HR specialists and generalists.  It highlights the fact that human resource decisions are often interrelated and require a basic understanding and application of numerous employment topics.  It also highlights the fact that an effective HR organization cannot work in a silo and is interdependent on sound application of technology, business processes, and policies as well as each other to be successful. 

The online modules will provide you the fundamental “know-hows” to avoid “guess-hows.”  Once you have mastered Essentials, “it will become wisdom …..after practical use.”
