HR Items of Interest

2.) HR offering Performance Management Staff Review training

11:30 a.m. March 4, Room 103A, Human Resources Building

Free

The performance management tool is designed to foster greater clarity and consistency in staff performance evaluations, prompt better communication and raise confidence for staff employees. Performance management is a shared process that requires the investment of both supervisors and employees to ensure that individual effort is aligned with department goals and objectives. Please help us move toward a more contemporary, professional and interactive performance evaluation process.

Additional Information: Register, Questions.

3.) Staff Development can help with difficult supervisor/employee conversations

3 p.m. March 4, Room 103A, Human Resources Building

Free

It is often difficult to have important conversations with employees. Supervisors and managers usually look for the “perfect time” or hope employees will make changes on their own. It is important to address these issues so that employees are performing to the best of their ability. Staff Development is offering a session on having difficult conversations with your employees. Participants will learn more about communication, how to avoid communication breakdowns and best practices.
