New Year’s Resolution: More Professional Development!

Happy Holidays from CSN! 

Our group has two events scheduled for January — Please consider attending one or both of these interactive, informative sessions facilitated by CSN planning committee members! Don’t delay; space is limited for each class.

Fostering a Culture of Employee Appreciation and Recognition

CSN will once again offer this session with Rich Gassen as facilitator. Through his research, Rich has built up a variety of resources from online influencers on this important subject and will share his findings with participants.

Come prepared to discuss current workplace practices for recognition and employee engagement; learn some stats, proven success stories on our campus, and ideas for a more appreciative work experience. Handouts and materials will be provided, along with some tools to immediately employ in work areas.
