Project Overview

Employee turnover is costly to any business; The Society for Human Resources Management estimates that employee turnover costs a business six to nine months of salary. Leadership for Successful Employee Management helped managers improve employee communication and management, thereby increasing employee retention.     

Each course consisted of three in-person, six-hour classes and two webinars that featured lectures, discussion, and exercises.  Participants improved their leadership, communication, and supervisory skills to become the employer of choice.   Instructors introduced strategic concepts first (e.g. business culture, leadership, employee engagement) and checked in throughout the program to see how participants were implementing these skills in their business.  During the last class, more tactical issues, such as hiring and tax laws, were discussed.  The program addresses both human and legal risk.  The course was presented at two sites with a total attendance of 35 participants. 

Number of Participants: 35
