Basic Training Courses

Specialized training for some employee positions is difficult and time consuming.

That’s why MWG Employer Services has teamed with Holmes Community College (Ridgeland Campus) to provide training classes for payroll administration and human resources. These one-day classes, held from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm, teach the basics by providing an understanding of duties and responsibilities, rules and regulations, and best practices.
