We know that supervisors and managers are extremely critical in any organization. They represent the Company in multiple ways, including Human Resources. While technically proficient, we find that most supervisors do not understand the role of Human Resources, HR policies and HR practices.

Designed and led by a Human Resources Manager with over 3 decades of experience, this workshop is meant to provide supervisors with practical information, insights and tools.
