    Workforce challenges

    This year at our annual all-day employer training in Lincoln City, we present topics that are challenging for our employers in running their businesses.

    Dealing with the dysfunctional employee

    Long gone are the days of Miss Manners and etiquette classes that provided a common means for respectful interaction within society. Inaccurate beliefs abound among employees, who sometimes come to work with attitudes about personal freedom that frequently are at odds with employment policies and the definition of "right" (such as provocative speech and texting, piercings, and medical marijuana). This presentation addresses an employer's right to prohibit inappropriate conduct and maintain a work environment best suited to the company's needs.

    Employer at Injury Program (EAIP) - Returning your injured employees to work: how, and what is the benefit to you?

    This hands-on workshop is designed to increase your knowledge to effectively and creatively administer components of the Employer-At-Injury Program (EAIP). What is this program, and how can it help you and your injured workers?

    We cover how to proactively manage work restrictions and develop appropriate job descriptions to access the EAIP benefits available. You'll have an opportunity to participate and learn about creative ways the program has been used to pay for qualifying purchases, such as worksite modifications and equipment that overcome barriers to returning your employees to productive work after their injuries.

    Date Monday, October 30, 2017
    Time 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
    Location Inn at Spanish Head Resort Hotel, 4009 SW Highway 101, Lincoln City, OR 97367

    Ages and stages: communication

    Soon, Millennials-people born between 1977 and 1997-will account for nearly half the employees in the world. With Boomers and Traditionalists still in the workforce, we have begun preparing for the realities of an aging workforce. And, as Generation 2020 joins these generations, along with Generations X and Y, organizations may soon have an unprecedented five generations in the workplace at once. 

    The workforce is filled with people of all skill levels, learning styles, and generational perspectives. In order to ensure a dynamic, safe, and productive work environment that transcends these differences, strategic knowledge-sharing and thoughtful communication become top priorities.

    This class helps you define the generations at work and the characteristics of each (Traditionalists, Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials, and Generation 2020) and helps you discover ways for effective communication and knowledge-sharing.

    Date Thursday, November 16, 2017
    Time 9 to 11:30 a.m.
    Location SAIF Conference Center, 440 Church Street SE, Salem OR 97312
