What Kroger associates had to say about the program:

“I am glad that Kroger teamed up with SHRM to offer this class. I think this is a GREAT class for someone in the DHRM role. There are a lot of topics that we hit that would be very insightful for them. I know that if I would have had this class back when I became a DHRM, it would have helped a lot.” Division Recruiting & Training Manager

“[T]he biggest take-away I have so far relates to the entire experience. I have been on the HR team for close to two years and as I mentioned in the beginning I knew a little about each department. After working through the modules, I have a much better understanding why we do what we do.” Sr. Field Trainer

[A big] takeaway for me was that solid definition of Human Resources. As we are in the stores Human Resources can lose its meaning, and sometimes it can get mixed in with everything else we do . . . I think this made me think about my role, and how I can use this to create more productivity in the store. The other thing that I thought was great was the Strategic Planning process. I want to give this to my store and have a solid plan that everyone knows going forward. I think this class is going to take us to the next level.HR Assistant Store Manager
