Supervisor Training Enrichment Program

STEP into Success with POD


It is not uncommon for supervisors to come into the role without training or former experience and this can cause issues for the supervisor, the employee and even the University.  Through a combination of online and instructor led classes, HR will host a collection of trainings for all supervisors and managers to enhance their skills.   In partnership with Staff Council, the Human Resources Training Team has develop a new supervisors training program designed to increase the knowledge and effectiveness of supervisors.
