Six employee management webinars are scheduled for this fall, offered at no charge by the National Pork Board. They are designed to help pork producers deal with the challenges of managing human resources.

During six weeks, listeners will learn to recognize the impact of actively managing each employee’s day-to-day and overall performance, discover new methods, tips and tools for effective employee management.

Registration must be made in advance and individually for each webinar. All webinars run from 3-4 p.m. central standard time. For questions, contact Sharlottte Peterson at (515) 223-2614 or speterson@pork.org.
