Every business is different and thus, every workplace is different. To get workplace training right, it should be convenient and relevant to your specific type of workplace environment.

Who constitutes a supervisor? A supervisor is any employee who supervises one or more individuals. The titles start with all Business Owners and include: Team Leader, Supervisor, Manager, HR, CEO, CFO, President, VP, etc. Supervisors are charged with protecting the workplace environment.

Supervisors are often the first to learn about a concern that rises to the level of unlawful behavior. A company's liability risk can be increased or decreased based on the actions of a supervisor, who also can be held personally liable in certain situations. Failing to train supervisors is risky business.
Managing your employer obligations can be challenging. How can a business keep up? We've made it convenient for you and your employees to engage in training to protect your workplace.

There is no room for misunderstanding of what the Company expects from employees and the ramifications for unlawful behavior. At the end of the day, unlawful behavior is not only a training problem, it's a workplace environment problem. Protecting your workplace is addressing the systemic workplace issues of recognizing unlawful behavior in your business.
