Supervisors in Action: Managing the UWO Workforce


Supervisors in Action is geared towards building the foundation for our supervisors and equipping them with the knowledge and skills to be effective in their roles. The comprehensive agenda covers the essential building blocks to supervisory excellence—including Employment Law, Risk Management, Employment Relations and Managing Performance.

Who should attend? This training is open to anyone that directly supervises employees of the University. Experience level does not matter because this training will be relevant for:

  • Anyone newly hired or recently promoted to a supervisor position on campus without any past experience managing people
  • Those with experience supervising on campus but may want a refresher on the unique role and expectations of supervisors
  • Those with experience supervising from past jobs but need to understand how to apply their experience to working at UWO

You can now register for the Summer 2024 session, which will be held July 16 & 18.
