| || || HR 101: What Owners and Managers Need to Know |
About Having Employees
Do you know the legal aspects of having employees? What state and federal regulations must you observe? What notices must you provide your employees? How do you interview job applicants, and what records must be maintained documenting your hiring decisions? Our HR 101 workshop will address these and other questions as we help you navigate the "alphabet soup" of Human Resources - ADA, COBRA, EEO, FMLA, FLSA and more.
| || || Building Employer and Employee Relationships |
Though employees initially agree to work for your company to secure an income, their motivation is based on more than purely financial rewards. To secure employees' hearts and minds, there are critical components to include in your compensation and benefits package. Learn creative ways to "pay" your employees that go beyond mere money. It's easy to hire a worker - it's more challenging (but rewarding) to develop a workforce that works with you, not just for you.
| || || Improving Employees' Skills |
As an employer, you want your employees to possess the best skills they can. Whether it's improving employees' technical skills or their interpersonal abilities, you need to be able to teach and coach those skills so employees really understand them. Learn a little about adult learning theory and learn a lot about the 10 skills you need to have before you can teach your employees the skills and performance traits they need to succed.
| || || Terminating Employees |
If you've never terminated an employee, count yourself lucky. But, if you manage employees, at some point in your career you will be faced with conducting a termination. Whether it's one employee with unacceptable performance or a reduction in your overall workforce, your goal is to conduct both legally defensible and humane terminations. Learn how to prepare for each step - from identifying the need to terminate an employee to effectively delivering the news and managing the impact on your workforce.
