The last time you promoted someone, why did you do it?
Because that someone showed superior performance, and you hoped he or she would prove to have managerial talent. With good judgment and a little bit of luck, you were probably right.
The problem is, your new manager is now in a position not only to help your company, but also to make or break it. You’ve heard about the enormous HR-based lawsuits employees can bring against companies.
At the very least, your newbie managers – and your veterans as well – can boost morale and productivity, or tank them both. It isn’t easy being a supervisor. Who knows better than you?
Fortunately, help is here – again! – with HR Memos to Managers, Vol. 2 : 81 More Concise, Customizable Training Handouts for Your Supervisors. This valuable handbook is packed with clear, concise, easy-to-understand Memos for you to share with your managers however you choose. You’ll also enrich your own understanding of HR issues.
Like Volume 1, this handbook is also an easy-to-use binder that lets you pull out the hard copy of any Memo for duplication and distribution.
You also get online access to the Word versions of the Memos for instant download. So you can customize them with your company’s logo, your signature, however you want. (We also sell the Memos in download-only form if you prefer, though most of our customers enjoy using the binder.)
While convenience is important, content is king – and these 81 Memos from the expert editors at The HR Specialist are a rich resource indeed. This training-kit-in-a-binder will help your supervisors:
- Understand employment law and keep your organization out of trouble. HR Memos to Managers kicks off with basic training in employment law – including the “new” ADA – then details several lawsuit risks. Everything from how to handle a request for secrecy to the red flags of a sexually hostile environment.
- Handle tricky situations like a pro. Performance reviews, discrimination claims, disciplinary actions, confrontations – are your managers ready for the deep end of the pool? Better teach them how to swim before they sink.
- Boost their department’s performance and morale – and your company’s bottom line. HR Memos to Managers is not all about avoiding negatives. You’ll find Memos on motivation and management skills that will help improve morale and productivity. Memos on hiring and interviewing, too.
In fact, there’s plenty of wisdom in HR Memos to Managers that could help you be an even better manager – and accelerate your next promotion.
