If you are relatively new to supervising student workers at UMass, then this two-part interactive workshop will help give you tools and strategies to lay the groundwork for student workplace success.
Participants will learn:
· The unique perspective that students bring to the workplace: what motivates them, what priorities they have to juggle as a student, what point of view they add to your multi-generational workplace.
· Tools and UMass examples to orient, train, and manage student workers.
· Supervision practices and strategies for supporting and improving students’ work performance that include: giving constructive and positive feedback, motivating, delegating and assigning tasks, and disciplining.
