This month's topic: The Top Ten Employee Management Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Employees are a company’s greatest expense and their greatest resource. As a small business owner or supervisor, you know that managing employees can be a complicated and time consuming process. However, many small businesses don’t have the luxury of an in-house HR department, so these tasks fall to the organization’s leadership team. Some studies show that small business owners spend at least 30% of their time on people management issues.
In this fast-paced presentation, you will learn how to easily avoid the top ten employee management mistakes. We will discuss proactive steps you can take to avoid unnecessary liability. You’ll also learn best practices to implement in your own organizations, including proven and effective HR strategies.
