    North Star SHRM will be hosting a seminar titled: You’re a Supervisor, and You Did What?  It will be held at the Minnesota School of Business (11500 193rd Avenue, Elk River) on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 from 8 am to 9:30 am. All North Star SHRM members are invited to attend.  In addition, all Elk River and I-94 West Chamber members, and Minnesota School of Business students are invited to attend.  There is no cost to attend.

    The target audience for this seminar is HR professionals and any small business owners.  The hour-long session will analyze ways that supervisors incur risks for employers, the potential consequences, and risk management approaches.

    The course will cover problematic conduct that supervisors sometimes engage in, either intentionally or unintentionally; the legal risks and consequences of those behaviors; and steps that employers can take to minimize their risk.

    Learning objectives are:

    • Create fine-grained training modules for supervisors
    • Assess supervisor-related risks attached to known employee complaints
    • Detect potential employee complaints from assessing supervisory conduct
    • Develop additional areas for feedback to supervisors

    This seminar will be presented by Joseph Nierenberg.
