Supervisors and managers will get another opportunity to hone their skills, while receiving valuable information on productivity best practices when The Productivity Council hosts a two-day workshop later this month.
It will be held on September 27 and 28 at The Council, 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 Supervision; Leadership; Coaching; Employee Engagement; Building Trust; Performance Management; Motivation; and Delegation.
Persons interested in attending the sessions should call Tara Parris at The Council at 535-5901; Karen Collins at 535-5914; or email firstname.lastname@example.org for the registration fee.
Training Officer at The Productivity Council, Karen Collins, said the session 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 employee. Positive supervisor-employee workplace relationships help to drive organisational improvement, profitability and competitiveness.
“In addition, it will stress 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 said.
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.
“A company with a focus on productivity will seek to improve all areas of the organisation as it strives to maintain stability and sustainability in times of uncertainty,” she maintained.
