KMA U Programs Help Supervisors/Managers Develop Essential Skills

This Friday, November 3, KMA presents two programs as part of it series of complementing courses available this fall and winter to help HR professionals, supervisors, and managers develop essential skills for the workplace.

The HR Toolbox – Essentials for Every Supervisor/Manager

  • 9:30 – 11:30 AM at KMA Human Resources Consulting, 251 US Route 1, Falmouth, Maine
  • This class qualifies for CEUs from HRCI and SHRM.

Supervisors and managers are responsible for following company policy and procedures and helping maintain compliance with state and federal regulations. What do supervisors need to know to cover these requirements and how can they be better supervisors? This program covers the essentials of major employment laws, interviewing, onboarding, communicating expectations to employees, coaching and managing performance, injury and illness management, and documenting employee issues. Sample forms and resources are provided.

Understanding the Performance Management Process

  • 1:00 – 3:00 PM at KMA Human Resources Consulting, 251 US Route 1, Falmouth, Maine
  • This class qualifies for CEUs from HRCI and SHRM.

We’ve all heard those two words, “Performance Management,” but what do they really mean in the world of Human Resources?  The big picture of managing employee performance is basic and has three primary elements.  These include 1) Goal Setting, 2) Coaching & Developing, and 3) Documenting & Providing Feedback that calibrates how well an employee does relative to his/her goals and performance expectations.  In this program, we drill a little bit deeper into these aspects so that participants are clear about some industry best practices that support employees achieving best performance which translates into employees being engaged in their work.  Engaged employees better support overall business goals—a win-win setup that can be achieved with a solid performance management strategy.


You can sign up for one program, or both, at your convenience.
