Sept. 16: WSU supervisory training to be videoconferenced

PULLMAN, Wash. – The Supervisory Training Series for academic year 2014-15 will begin Tuesday, Sept. 16, with “Position Descriptions, Expectations and Annual Reviews.”

Additional topics in the Washington State University series are Workplace Communication, Equal Opportunity Issues, Workplace Issues and other areas critical to effective supervision.

Civil service entry-level supervisors and managers are required to begin this training within six months of their appointment – 12 months if organizational circumstances require their attendance be postponed. Entry-level supervisors and managers who feel they may be exempt from the training can download, complete and return the audit form (see link below) to Employee Training and Development, campus zip code 1014.

Human Resource Services (HRS) continues the training in accordance with civil service reform and WAC 357-34 and strongly encourages all supervisors, including those exempt from the WAC requirement, to attend all or selected portions of this series. The workshops have been updated to reflect current statutes, trends and practices.

The 2014-15 series will be available statewide via AMS Videoconferencing Services. Find the schedule and register online at
