Iowa State University Extension is offering employee management workshops to help managers and supervisors learn and adopt tools and techniques to manage employees in their operations.

The three-part workshop series is designed to improve employee management skills to increase employee satisfaction and productivity for employers with a small number of employees (5-15) who don’t have training in employee management.

Workshops will be held:

  • Jan. 31, Feb. 7 and 14 at the Hardin County Extension Office in Iowa Falls;
  • Feb. 1, 8 and 15 at the Amana Colonies Clarion Inn in Williamsburg;
  • Feb. 2, 9 and 16 at the Northeast Iowa Community College in Calmar; and
  • Feb. 15, 22 and March 1 at the Northwestern Iowa Community College in Sheldon.

The hands-on workshop covers job descriptions, communications, legal issues, performance evaluations and more.

Preregistration is required; a fee for meals is payable at the door. The workshop is funded in part by a grant from the North Central Risk Management Education Center.
