HR Items of Interest
6.) Workplace Ethics
9 a.m. Dec. 3 Room 103A Human Resources
Free
The most important responsibility we have as members of an organization is to uphold the highest standards of ethical behavior. Workplace ethics refer to choosing the option that is “right” thing to do, even if the other alternative(s) are very attractive and even if you can “get away with” the less ethical choice. In this highly interactive and engaging 90-minute workshop on workplace ethics, participants will learn how to identify ethical issues in their jobs and ways to address them.
Additional Information: Register. Questions.

7.) What Kind of Coach Are You?
2:30 p.m. Nov. 21 Room 103A Human Resources
Free
Coaching is about empowering and developing employees in an informal manner to help them achieve new skills and abilities, and to give constructive feedback. It is a great way to reinforce desirable behaviors as well as highlight behaviors that need to be addressed and discussed in a more comfortable way. In this presentation, attendees will learn effective coaching techniques, steps to provide feedback and take a test to learn “what kind of coach you are.”
Additional Information: Register. Questions.

8.) Job Application (Cover) Letter
10 a.m. Nov. 15 Room 103A Human Resources
Free
Learn how to write a cover letter for your résumé that demonstrates you have the required skills for a particular position. This session will focus on organizing and explaining your skills and relating them to the needs of the company. Bring a copy of your current résumé and, if you have one, a description of the type of position for which you are interested in applying.
Additional Information: Register. Questions.

Miscellaneous
9.) Compliance Awareness: Conflicts of Interest? What conflicts of interest?
No doubt when you hear that phrase, you think, “Yeah that is an issue — for someone else, not me!” Well, maybe not. Just because someone has a conflict of interest does not mean they are doing anything wrong. It is merely a recognition that an external interest they hold or activity they participate in might overlap with the roles they have at UofL. To learn about conflicts of interest, please read more (PDF).
