Webinar Option: Covid-19 has changed work life permanently. Employers are exploring options to re-open that protect employee health and safety, and many will continue to limit employee travel through the Fall. This webinar replaces a 12-hour, two-day in-person training with content updated to reflect working conditions in the era of Covid-19. Training will be offered 2 hours/day, 3 days a week over a 2-week period for a total of 12 attendance hours. Attendance certificates provided. Zoom break-out sessions will be used for small group discussion.
Workshop Description: Supervisory support makes a significant impact on employee mental health and well-being during ordinary times and more so in times of extreme stress and uncertainty. Employers currently have the opportunity to reinvent their organizational practices and culture to support the ability of staff to bring their best to their work. Make sure that as a supervisor, you receive the formal training you need for this cultural pivot. Ensure that you are creating positive momentum to support diversity, inclusivity, and equity for employees. How will your team designed alliance and communication agreements look different in this new period? Do you view supervision time with staff and performance appraisals as opportunities to partner and learn your staff’s goals and hopes for their clients and their ideas for new ways to provide services or new programs that can help your organization adapt to the new realities? With staggered schedules, communication with staff to learn the resources, tools, & support they need to do their jobs is a priority. Ensure that your organization keeps the “right” staff to bring your organization through the Covid-19 recovery period. With reduced resources, high quality staff who can perform at their best are essential. Effective supervision is even more important in a remote work environment because not all employees are suited to create their own structure and work independently.
Due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, many employers have laid off, furloughed or reduced staff hours. Combined with a lack of formal supervisory training, this can become a situation ripe for unhappy employees and significantly reduced long-term productivity. Workforce development and training are critical during times of crisis as new practices are needed and opportunities for business, nonprofit, tribal, and governmental pivots become more important.
Intended Audience: This workshop is designed for employees charged with supervisory responsibilities. Nonprofit/tribal/and county human services managers, program directors, maintenance and transportation supervisors, financial services managers, county auditors, school principals, community college deans, and business professionals have appreciated this workshop. The supervision, communication, and evaluation tools taught are relevant in multiple workplaces.
