Developing A Learning Culture through Employee Accountability
August 13, 2019
Fee(s):This registration has a fee.
Description:Humans are fallible, and no system can prevent all mistakes from happening. How we react and learn from those mistakes is critical in minimizing future mistakes. This presentation will cover human behavior, systemic learning, and appropriate employee accountability to create a learning culture. Learn how defining specific duties - applicable to ALL employees (including management) - can help bring clarity for supervisors and managers when dealing with mistakes and risky behavior. We will explore the concepts of a Just/Learning Culture, and how systemic learning and event investigation can reduce bad outcomes and lead to better relationships between labor and management.
