Employment Law Training for Managers: How to Be Sure They Remember and Apply What They Learn

WHEN: Thursday March 13, 2014 1:00 pm EST – 40 Minutes
SPEAKER: Lori MacIsaac, Leadership Development Expert

Why are we giving you free admission to this webinar? Because we’d like to introduce you to the Compliance & Management Rapid Learning Center – an online training system to help busy leaders sharpen critical management skills. By attending this webinar you’ll not only get some practical ideas to improve employment law awareness in your workplace, you’ll also be given access to a 10-minute online training module – perfect for sharing with your team. This video is just one of the many programs you’ll find in the Compliance & Management Rapid Learning Center library. We hope you enjoy the webinar and your free trial.

More often than you think, managers and supervisors do and say things that violate employment laws and put your organization at risk of a lawsuit.

Is it because they’re bad people who wantonly flout our legal system? Is it because they have no regard for worker rights? Absolutely not. They generally act in a way they believe to be in the best interest of their department and the organization.

Unfortunately, they make mistakes because they’ve simply forgotten the employment law training they’re received. They’re busy people and such “legal details” are seldom top-of-mind as they navigate their busy day.

The question is, why do they forget so much of what they’ve been told? And, what can you do to ensure that they know what to do when faced with a potentially dangerous legal trouble spot?

This webinar will give you research-based insights on why so much employment law training fails, and a road map to deliver future training in a way that will dramatically increase learning retention and transference to workplace situations.

The program will cover:

  • The curse of cognitive overload and how to overcome it
  • A powerful analogy that explains how adults process what they learn
  • Why “chunked learning” is the key to effective employment law training – and why it’s a game-changing approach for both learners and trainers
  • How to turn an employment law training “event” into an ongoing “process”
  • An “interval reinforcement plan” that makes training stick
  • The critical importance of training in the moment of need
