Here are some of our session topics:
Less Managing, More Mannered Moments: This session concentrates on reducing unprofessional or uncivil behavior in the workplace. More than 45% of a manager’s time is spent resolving conflict resulting from employee’s inappropriate behavior…what would it do your company’s bottom line if you could get 50% of that time back? And what better time to start that than early in the year?
Summer Internship Slouch: The summer internship has become a vital and competitive commodity for both the intern and the employer. Studies have shown the preparedness level of college graduates to move into the workplace, to be at an all-time low. Mother, May I is here to bridge that gap. Internship programs are the best way to recruit the best full time candidates, so get the most out of the experience by including etiquette and professional protocol training in the internship process.
Holiday Guidelines: Reports have proven that the holiday season is a breeding ground for bad behavior. Adecco reports that 4 in 10 Americans, have either done something inappropriate or have witnessed poor judgment at a holiday office party. We can help by training managers and employees on the best way to navigate the holiday season to not end up with a trip to the HR manager’s office.
All Aboard Training: On boarding new employees is one of the most important tasks to ensure retention and a positive experience for the employee and employer.
