3.       Develop a support group; and

4.       Share best practices.

Each session will be scheduled from 12:00-1:00... and feel free to bring your lunch!

Supervisors are #1... when it comes to employee engagement

President Potter and Holly Schoenherr, Director of Human Resources, will kick off the first session in the series by addressing the important role of supervisors in retaining valuable employees and creating a work environment where employees can thrive.


All Employment Contracts are not Created Equal (aka That Depends...)

If you supervise employees in different bargaining units, you have likely become confused at some point by the nuances contained within the various contracts.  And when you contact Human Resources with a question, you may hear, “Well, that depends....” This session will address some of the frequently asked questions about employment contracts as well as provide you with information to prevent you from making some common missteps.


Principles of Effective Performance Management

This session will build on the foundation laid at the kickoff session in October (Supervisors are #1) regarding employee engagement.  We will discuss common myths of performance management and explore the fundamental skills and practices of a “No Surprises” approach to helping your employees excel.
