Human Resources Development
Your organization’s most important resource is its talent. STS offers programs that assist your HR department or function to improve performance and productivity, reinforce positive behaviors, and create a more respectful and professional work environment.
Performance Management: For this program, STS incorporates your organization’s performance management system to teach managers about the importance of engaging in a year-round coaching and feedback approach. Key topics include how to write objective, job-focused performance reviews, the importance of setting clear goals and expectations, and how to conduct an effective performance appraisal meeting.
