Why Should you Attend

From a business perspective, training management employees how to write documentation and how to use the tools of employee development is undoubtedly the easiest and cheapest thing an employer can do to stave off unwarranted employment claims and to avoid losing valuable employees.

From an HR perspective, training managers of the basics of HR compliance can help to defend against a whole host of unwarranted employment claims, including those that often begin from miscommunication, misinformation, and mismanagement.

Even routine situations handled badly have the opportunity to blow up into suspicious explanations, hurt feelings, lowered productivity and worst of all, loss of talented employees.

Badly worded documentation and suspiciously timed administration is at a minimum problematic and at worst, hard to justify in employment claims. Inconsistent documentation, which may be just bad management practices, can cause employment claims from suspicious employees. Considering that writing ill-suited documentation and administering inconsistent discipline is generally carried out by managers who practice a host of other bad management habits; taken together the factors create a situation akin to a compliance powder keg waiting to explode.

Overview

In HR and as managers we are always advised to document, document, and document. But deciding what should be documented, how situations should be stated, what words to use, what to include or not and how not to can be tricky if someone has never been trained. Who sees the documentation and how it is used becomes trickiest of all. For many company documentation has been used to their detriment, whether deservedly or not.

This webinar will cover best practices in documentation and worst practices. How to help your managers understand the importance of documentation is enough so that it will become a priority for them. We'll cover how to and how not to write, store, present and use documentation.
