Enhanced HR Dashboard is Now Online

The Chamber and Manufacturers Association of the Southern Tier have successfully provided access to online sexual harassment compliance training for more than 370 local businesses in recent months. Now, that system is changing just a bit. The former Training 360 dashboard that had been used for managing employee access to the training program has been migrated to a new and enhanced Learning Management System Dashboard. There have been a few issues with conversion to the new system, but we are here to help you with that process. You will need new login credentials for the new enhanced system. If you need assistance please call our office and we can help you. In the meantime, any member business that has questions can feel free to call the Chamber office at 366-6200 or 484-1101.
