The human resource mantra to managers and supervisors is to “document, document, document.” But do your managers and supervisors know how, when, and what to document? This class will provide managers and supervisors with the skills to effectively document employee performance. Participants will learn a performance documentation process and understand its importance in preventing legal claims. Using proven techniques, participants will practice writing job-related performance documentation. This class will focus on how the current legal climate affects public employers as well as the “how-to’s” of documenting employee actions.


  • Why documentation helps prevent legal claims
  • How to document behaviors, not people
  • What to include in all documentation
  • Practice documentation skills
