Certificate for Newly Promoted Supervisors in NGOs - HR Essence on Recruitment, Selection and People Development in Aligning Goals and Values (Session 6)


According to the HKCSS Institute’s Training Need Analysis (NGO TNA, 2018), junior managers were found to be having difficulties in managing their changed role in terms of attitude and skill set, especially on staff supervision and, workload and work level management. There is also a need for them to have a mutual-support network for on-going challenges and to have different exposure to widen their horizon. "The First-time Manager” (2015) specifies that role and function of a supervisor include recruitment, communication, planning, organizing, training, supervising, performance assessment and dismissal. Based on the needs found, a 5-day programme in 2 months with two clusters of skills is designed to cater for the changing role of a newly promoted supervisor, which are personal efficacy and people management. Besides, a programme in 2-month long in 5 meetings may facilitate participants to build peer network outside the organisation.
