Maximize Your Managers…Survival Skills

Making the Most of Your Managers…Survival Skills

Are you giving your managers everything they need to be successful? Do they know all they should to keep themselves and your organization out of trouble?  Most of them are proven achievers in their technical areas of expertise, they’ve risen through the ranks, and now they’re in charge of your most expensive assets…your employees.  But often, they’ve had little or no training in the people aspects of their work.

Join Janett Edrington of Common Sense Workplace as she outlines what every manager needs:

 Responsibility and Resources

  • Power and Authority
  • Truth and Consequences
  • Training, training and more training…Survival Skills

 When you give managers what they need, you’ll increase their confidence, reduce legal risks, retain key employees at every level and rev up the success of your entire team!

 With more than 25 years experience in Human Resources management, training and consulting, Janett always brings humor and a positive approach to making the most of the people in your organization — including you!

Name That Leave (of Absence)

Name That Leave (of Absence)

No one wants to but we all have to deal with leaves of absence.
No one wants some dry presentation that numbs us to the core so that we learn nothing from the speaker.

Which is why we asked a spirited speaker – Barbara Trumbly –  to provide us with information in a fun (if it’s possible) way to involve the audience so that we all learn more about a dry subject.

State and federal law provide for more than a dozen types of protected leaves (it’s actually closer to 2-dozen, but who’s counting?) This includes FMLA, CFRA, PDL, as well as disability leave provided as a reasonable accommodation.

This presentation is not provided by an attorney but an HR consultant who deals with real life situations every day.

Are you a covered employer? If so, what is your responsibility? What is the employees responsibility and leave entitlement? What should you do? And when?

This seminar will provide employers, human resource professionals, supervisors and managers with examples and information concerning the various leaves. Attendees will learn how to apply practical procedures to the most common real-world leave management problems.
