Get Your Staff Training and Development Back on Track

Thursday September 29, 2022
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. ET
Speakers: Carolee Colter (HR Consultant at Columinate), Mark Mulcahy (Leadership and Business Development Consultant at Columinate)

With the staff turnover employers are now contending with, it’s more important than ever to create a clear path for professional growth. Historically, our industry has done well at providing learning opportunities. But during the pandemic disruption, we've noted that staff training and development have been disrupted. Holding performance reviews, planning time in the work schedule for self-directed training, even basic training for new employees--these haven't been happening with any predictability in the past 2 years. In this practical webinar, we’ll provide ideas to get training and development back on track. Key Audience Takeaways:
  • Create the best possible conditions for learning, even in a busy store with frequent staff call-outs
  • Identify your best trainers—they might not include you!
  • Build levels in your pay structure to reward certification or taking on extra duties
  • Create written plans for individual staff development
  • Use our sample training checklist and staff development plans as models
