Training for First Time Supervisors 

With a projected worker shortage, employers need to deploy multiple workforce strategies that retain good workers & enhance company culture. This training will help supervisors recognize and use mentoring skills in their daily interaction with entry-level employees. Topics include Communication, Resilience, Integrity, Problem Solving and Teamwork.

Training is one day only, 7:30-3:30pm. Light breakfast and lunch is included in registration. 

Check out some comments from participants last year:

"More than what I expected!"

"As a supervisor, sometimes the stress of the job can cause me to forget that as a mentor, I have the ability to have a positive impact on my employees"

"I learned a lot about how I can become more effective as a supervisor"

"Practical information that can be used right away!"

Frameworks is an HR consulting firm specializing in workforce development.  Kimberley Patrick, founder of Frameworks, currently serves as Coordinator of Career Ready Lancaster! in addition to her consulting work. She served as Director of Workforce Development and Post-Secondary Education for the Lancaster County Career & Technology Center and Vice President of JFC Workforce specializing in manufacturing and skilled trades recruiting.  Kimberley’s passion is in developing others, particularly entry level employees.  Developing people is the best retention strategy – helping individuals at all levels of an organization leave with better interpersonal skills than they started with.  

Kimberley is a certified HR professional (SHRM-CP), working with organizations small and large to create positive and energizing work environments.  She believes that mentoring skills are built from good communication skills and should be taught at all levels of an organization with or without a formal mentoring program in place.  She believes that mentors are developed, rather than plucked from a select few volunteers.  Imagine if everyone in the workplace saw themselves as a career mentor to someone else?  Kimberley is also trained as a registered apprenticeship navigator, helping companies start apprenticeship programs.  Mentorship is a requirement of registered apprenticeships but is also a great way to create growth opportunities for employees through daily positive interaction.
