Are you looking to gain insight into expense control, budgeting, benchmarking and more? The deadline to apply for the North American Hardware and Paint Association’s (NHPA) upcoming Financial Management cohort class is Jan. 6. Or, get started now with the flexible, self-paced option.
NHPA’s new online Financial Management course is the latest in the Foundations of Leadership program lineup and provides key team members and their mentors with a comprehensive understanding of the income statement and:
- How to control expenses
- How to drive sales and the components of the revenue equation
- How to increase the productivity of your salesfloor, your employees and inventory.
The curriculum is based on NHPA’s Cost of Doing Business Study and covers the financial fundamentals any developing manager, assistant manager or key employee needs to help take their business to the next level.
“Your store becomes their lab while students learn how to increase sales, profits and retail productivity,” says Scott Wright, NHPA executive director of advanced retail education programs.
As part of the nine-week course, students will complete an assessment of their business where they will apply the knowledge and skills they have learned toward solving a problem or capitalizing on a missed opportunity in the business.
