Online training courses HR

On this page you can find a selection of online HR training courses. This page will be updated regularly. Most of the regular HR training courses are now also available online. 

Online Helpdesk for Managers

In these unusual times, being a manager may be more demanding than usual. Informal contact is limited: a quick brainstorm session at the coffee machine or in the corridor now takes careful planning. Do you have any questions concerning online management you would like to discuss with an HR advisor, or would you like to exchange thoughts on this? You can!

Please contact us at hr-experts, so that we can link you to an HR advisor. If possible, please also indicate a subject in your email. We will contact you within two working days. In an online conversation, you can directly discuss your questions and any follow-up questions. If necessary, you can also plan a second meeting.

Intervision for managers

For now only available in Dutch.


Coaching is open to all members of staff who want to improve their performance through coaching sessions. Depending on the agreement, between 3 and 10 sessions can be arranged.

Dutch conversation meetings

There are still spots for participants in the weekly Dutch conversation meetings of Dual Career Support. During these meetings, which will be held online due to the coronavirus, you can practice your Dutch, guided by a Dutch-language coach. The meetings are for international staff and their partners with a minimum level of A2 (CEFR).

Would you like to practice your Dutch and do you have the minimum level of A2 (CEFR)? Sign up via the registration form.

Talent Portal

Would you like to further develop yourself, but aren’t sure what the possibilities are? Do you wonder how you can stay motivated in the long term? Or do you want to know how you can benefit from new developments in your position? Then the Talent Portal is for you. The Talent Portal was developed by the HR department and contains information about personal and career development, which you can get involved with yourself. On the Talent Portal, you can find:

  • Information about UG regulations to invest in your development
  • Stories from colleagues about their experiences, TED talks and podcasts
  • Relevant training courses (via the Corporate Academy)
  • Short tests to gain insight into your own motivation and qualities
  • Information about applying for jobs (within and outside the UG)
