Human resource professionals participating in the design and implementation of supervisor risk management training will want to consider the following general issues:
- Begin with an overall explanation of the importance of this training to the employer and its employees.
- Establish a checklist and document completion of each area of training, including training which may be shortcut due to the previous experience of the supervisor.
- Determine which areas of training should be addressed during a new supervisor's orientation and which should be staged over the subsequent introductory period.
- Consider whether outsourcing areas of training makes sense, depending on budget, expertise, available time, location, and other factors.
