    Supervisors in Action: Managing the UWO Workforce

    Supervisors in Action is geared towards building the foundation for our supervisors and equipping them with the knowledge and skills to be effective in their roles. The comprehensive agenda covers the essential building blocks to supervisory excellence—including Employment Law, Risk Management, Employment Relations and Managing Performance. 
    Who should attend? This training is open to anyone that directly supervises employees of the University. Experience level does not matter because this training will be relevant for:
      • Anyone newly hired or recently promoted to a supervisor position on campus without any past experience managing people
      • Those with experience supervising on campus but may want a refresher on the unique role and expectations of supervisors
      • Those with experience supervising from past jobs but need to understand how to apply their experience to working at UWO


    Third Thursday Workshops

    Whether it be coach, change agent or compliance officer, we know that supervising people requires a diverse skill set. Third Thursday Workshops are a monthly offering that will cover a diverse range of topics that are relevant to anyone in a supervisory role. They will be presented in a variety of formats, such as watching a webinar or listening to a subject matter expert. This is also a great opportunity to network with your peers to share best practices and ideas. Our office will also use this venue as an opportunity to share important HR-related updates, such as law or policy changes. The only requirement to attend is that you supervise at least one faculty, academic or university staff employee on campus.
