Supervisors and managers will get another opportunity to sharpen their skills while receiving valuable tips on productivity best practices when The Productivity Council hosts a two-day workshop next week.
It will be held on September 13 and 14 at the Council’s office, Third Floor, Baobab Tower, Warrens, St. Michael, starting at 9:00 a.m.
Some of the topics to be examined are: Key Roles and Responsibilities of the Supervisor; Leadership; Building Trust; Employee Engagement; Performance Management & Coaching; and Time Management & Delegation.
Persons interested in attending the training should call Tara Parris at The Council at 535-5901 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the registration fee.
Training & Development Officer at The Productivity Council, Karen Collins, underscored the importance of the training, saying that it would examine the roles and duties of the supervisor.
“The two-day workshop places great emphasis on the critical areas needed to build the relationship between the supervisor and the employee. Positive supervisor-employee workplace relationships help to drive organisational improvement, profitability and competitiveness.
“In addition, it will emphasise the crucial role of the supervisor in boosting organisational stability and success. Being a supervisor is a tough job; it takes focus, effort and energy to get it right. Yet, supervisors often take on this important role without the training and education needed to succeed,” Ms. Collins lamented.
She pointed out that with so many factors influencing productivity and organisational success; it was easy to focus on those tied to money and capital, while overlooking others linked to labour such as communication and relationship-building.
She maintained that a company with a focus on productivity should pursue continuous improvement at all levels.
