An organization’s greatest assets are the people who produce the products or services. Employee engagement in work activities is a critical factor in organizational success.
For student employees, methods of engagement need to begin early in their learning process so they can begin to draw the connections between their interests, strengths, and learning styles; their academic major; and the workplace. Their supervisor can play a valuable role in not only helping students learn about appropriate workplace behavior, but also helping them learn about themselves and their future career development. In this workshop you will learn how to coach student employees and build effective communication skills; use tools to address common competencies needed including time management and professional skills; and develop your student performance evaluation process including setting expectations and providing feedback.
The workshop will be Tuesday, April 8th, 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., in the University Center, Ballroom Lounge.
