Supervising for Success: Effective Management for the UW-Green Bay Workforce

At the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay, we are committed to providing an excellent educational and workplace experience, characterized by innovation, transformation, and place.  UW-Green Bay recognizes the impact that all supervisors have on the quality of work, level of productivity, and work attitude of the employees they direct.  Supervisors contribute greatly towards the growth, loyalty, motivation, retention, team spirit, and development of employees who report to them.

Ongoing training of all UW-Green Bay supervisors is important.  The University offers a program, Supervising for Success: Effective Management for the UW-Green Bay Workforce (formerly called Supervisor Bootcamp) which assists both new and experienced leaders in developing skills that will help them maximize individual and team performance.

The next offering of this full, two-day session will be Wednesday, April 20, 2016 – Thursday, April 21, 2016 in the Alumni A/B Rooms.  Topics that are included in this program include:

  • Legal issues for supervisors
  • Risk management and workers compensation
  • Personnel guidelines and titling
  • Governance structures
  • Creating a diverse and inclusive workplace
  • Position descriptions
  • Recruitment and staffing
  • Orientation and onboarding
