Being a supervisor can sometimes feel overwhelming. There are so many employment laws that it’s difficult to know what you need to do, and what you can’t do.  In addition, you are responsible for working with your staff to help them to be as productive as they can, and it’s not always clear how to do that.  You also need to know how to manage poor performance.  This class will cover the basics, and you will walk away with an understanding of the most critical legal obligations, some tips on how to manage your staff for peak performance, and how to handle some difficult situations you might encounter as a supervisor.

Please reserve your spot no later than May 12th, you will then be provided instructions on how to access the webinar.
