INTERACTIVE MANAGEMENT AND KEY EXECUTIVE TEAM TRAINING

Greenwald Doherty offers a variety of interactive and online training programs to senior management and other key executive teams on pertinent and timely employment law topics in order to create a more aware and knowledgeable team to handle and address employee issues.  Through our teaching, improvisation and coaching through role playing, these fun and team-oriented trainings are very well received and our most popular offerings.  Below are two of our top requested trainings:

  • Anti-Harassment/Anti-Discrimination Training in the Workplace for Supervisors – In this moment of heightened racial concerns as well as the #MeToo movement, it is important for companies to stay ahead of the curve to avoid being the next headline.  In defending these claims, we have found managers often do not fully understand the importance of these issues or are simply ill‐equipped to deal with them; and, then, there is the possibility that managers can be held personally liable, alongside the company.  Companies need to do everything they can to mitigate the risks of potential claims.  In response, we can facilitate a customized, interactive discrimination and harassment prevention training designed to stick in the minds of your managers and mitigate litigation risk.

 

  • Discipline for Results –Clearly communicating expectations to employees and to document an employee’s failure to perform is a non-negotiable management function. Our interactive training guides employers on the “when, where and how” of managing and documenting employee performance. Effective communication can avoid a situation where employees are surprised by a termination, which is often the impetus for terminated employees filing a discrimination lawsuit. Additionally, creating a paper trail can provide an employer with invaluable evidence to support a defense against a discrimination claim. It just may help to improve an employee’s performance – a “win-win” for employers who can move forward with a higher-performing employee and save on resources they would otherwise spend to replace a position and defend a possible lawsuit from an unhappy former employee.

WORKPLACE ACADEMY – Solution-Oriented  and Distance-Based Education for Your Employees

Through a related company (note – there is common ownership with Greenwald Doherty partners), we can grant access to Workplace Academy, a solution-oriented, distance-based education program that instructs employees and their supervisors on how to conduct themselves in real life scenarios.  Many states have already made sexual harassment and discrimination training mandatory, and others will likely follow. This practical and thorough training not only fulfills these state requirements, but also enables staff to excel at their jobs and move the business forward in a safe environment.  For more information please go to www.workplaceacademy.com.
