Nuts-N-Bolts: Engaging Employees through Career Development

Registration required through TrainingForce

OHSU managers and supervisors: Did you know that engaged employees have significantly higher productivity, profitability, and customer ratings, less turnover and absenteeism, and fewer safety incidents?  It’s true, according to a recent study by the Gallup organization. Yet, according the same report, up to 70% of American workers are not engaged. As managers, what can we do to engage employees? Gallup recommends aligning employee talents with organizational roles, which is the focus of this upcoming training from the OHSU Career and Workplace Enhancement Center.

This class will provide managers with the skills and resources to engage employees by supporting their continued career development. We will discuss the business case for career development, clarify roles and responsibilities, and identify resources available for employees and managers. The session will focus on the practical “how to” of career development by using the Individual Development Plan (IDP), a step-by-step process to help managers and their direct reports work together to establish a mutually-agreeable career plan. You will learn how to have productive career development discussions and will develop strategies to address common issues in regard to career development.
