HR | Atlantic - Positive Change at Work


Customized Learning

HR Atlantic offers a wide range of customized learning workshops and tools to ensure that our clients’ workplaces will work better and smarter.

Our workshops are interactive, engaging, and have proven to result in tangible skill development that builds confidence and competence. The format allows opportunities for application through group case studies, individual exercises, and practice to easily apply the learning to the workplace.

At HR Atlantic, we customize each learning event with the client, their workplace, and their key issues as our guide. We only teach what we know really well and we bring that to each learning experience. We also leverage the knowledge and experience that is brought to the workshop by each participant. Our workshops typically accommodate groups of twenty supervisors, managers, and/or leaders from all levels of an organization.

Here is a small sample of HR Atlantic programming:

Discovery Insights

The Insights® Discovery Personal Profile

A personal development tool which gives individuals an engaging, reinforcing and transformational insight into themselves and others. To receive the profile, individuals complete an evaluator tool. The result is a 20+ page profile that helps recipients to recognize and understand their personal style, and how this affects their relationships in both personal and professional environments. We use this valuable tool to help managers understand how better to manage their staff, and to help groups to work better as a team.
