Court decisions and newspaper headlines make it very clear that employers who fail to train regarding employee expectations and obligations are at the highest risk of litigation, inefficiency and low workplace morale. In certain cases, failure to train can mean that employers are liable even for situations that were never reported to management. The programs offered by Jim Webber Training are designed to create enjoyable learning experiences that help employers remain in compliance with applicable laws and also foster the best possible working environments.
Most of the courses described below are offered in full or half-day sessions, and most topics can be tailored for a short “Breakfast Briefing” or “Brown Bag” presentation. In addition, detailed programs for managers and supervisors are available that combine a variety of topics in training series that can be presented over consecutive days or spread over a period of weeks — any schedule that works best for your workplace. Jim Webber Training will work with you to develop an effective and meaningful learning experience for your team.
