Training Prerequisites: Bridges Out of Poverty: Strategies for Professionals and Communities

Contact: (800) 424-9484 |

In order to work effectively with low-wage and entry-level workers, supervisors and managers must understand the motivations of people coming from the environment of poverty.

Reduce turnover, increase productivity, and assess employee strengths to build resources for employees—and for the business.

Participants will understand how the levels of an organization reflect the hidden rules of class. Economic class affects opportunities to develop resources, and employees may need help developing skills necessary for promotion to the next level. Tools to determine training budgets and targets simplify this process.

This workshop is based on assessments of the resources of people recently promoted in the workplace. Do you know which resource was present in every case? Hear the answer in this workshop!
