Dear Colleague:

The last time you promoted someone, why did you do it?

Because that someone showed superior performance, and you hoped he or she would prove to have managerial talent. With good judgment and a little bit of luck, you were probably right.

The problem is, your new manager is now in a position not only to help your company, but also to make or break it. You’ve heard about the enormous HR-based lawsuits employees can bring against companies.

At the very least, your newbie managers – and your veterans as well – can boost morale and productivity, or tank them both. It isn’t easy being a supervisor. Who knows better than you?

Fortunately, help is here – again! – with HR Memos to Managers, Vol. 2 : 81 More Concise, Customizable Training Handouts for Your Supervisors. This valuable handbook is packed with clear, concise, easy-to-understand Memos for you to share with your managers however you choose. You’ll also enrich your own understanding of HR issues.

Like Volume 1, this handbook is also an easy-to-use binder that lets you pull out the hard copy of any Memo for duplication and distribution.

You also get online access to the Word versions of the Memos for instant download. So you can customize them with your company’s logo, your signature, however you want. (We also sell the Memos in download-only form if you prefer, though most of our customers enjoy using the binder.)

While convenience is important, content is king –  and these 81 Memos from the expert editors at The HR Specialist are a rich resource indeed. This training-kit-in-a-binder will help your supervisors:

  • Understand employment law and keep your organization out of trouble. HR Memos to Managers kicks off with basic training in employment law – including the “new” ADA – then details several lawsuit risks. Everything from how to handle a request for secrecy to the red flags of a sexually hostile environment.
  • Handle tricky situations like a pro. Performance reviews, discrimination claims, disciplinary actions, confrontations – are your managers ready for the deep end of the pool? Better teach them how to swim before they sink.
  • Boost their department’s performance and morale – and your company’s bottom line. HR Memos to Managers is not all about avoiding negatives. You’ll find Memos on motivation and management skills that will help improve morale and productivity. Memos on hiring and interviewing, too.
In fact, there’s plenty of wisdom in HR Memos to Managers that could help you be an even better manager – and accelerate your next promotion.
Yes, I want your instant training kit for my managers. (And I might consult some of these Memos for myself.)

  • Management Skills (13 Memos). There’s something to make every manager better in this, our largest section.

  • Managing Difficult Situations (10 Memos). These vital skills merit a whole section of their own.

Are you beginning to understand why Volume 1 of HR Memos for Managers was such a hit? We just had to produce a sequel!

In addition to the range of content you’ll find in this training kit, you’ll be impressed with the level of detail each Memo provides. It’s all about actionable information.

For example, one Memo includes specific phrases never to use during performance reviews, including:

“Your position here is solid as long as you keep up the good work.” Such a statement may encourage good performance, but it’s legally dangerous because it implies an employment contract that a court could find binding – and limits the organization’s ability to terminate the person if his or her performance declines.

Occasionally we throw in a sidebar to make the content – dare we say? – fun. After all, you want people to read the Memo! Here’s an example …

Weird interview questions supervisors actually asked:
“If you were to get rid of one state in the U.S., which would it be and why?”
“What song best describes your work ethic?”
“What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?”
“How do you make a tuna sandwich?”
“Pick two celebrities to be your parents.”
