You should have received an email by now from SafeColleges. SafeColleges is the vendor we have chosen to provide online Sexual Harassment training to our employees. This training, entitled "Sexual Harassment: Staff to Staff", is a mandatory training for all LCSC employees. This online training session is approximately 20 minutes in length and provides background information on sexual harassment; offers several scenarios; and identifies indicators of inappropriate behaviors, states the legal rights, responsibilities, and liabilities of employees. We ask that all employees complete this training by November 13, 2015.
New employees will be required to take this training within five (5) working days of their date of hire. LCSC students are not required to take this particular training. They will be set up to take the "Campus Save Act for Students - Sexual Violence Awareness" training at a different time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Vikki in HRS at x.2269 or firstname.lastname@example.org

The Division of Human Resources is pleased to announce the scheduling of their new Supervisory Academy, Performance Management Series. The Supervisory Academy will now be offered in a cohort model (no longer single courses as previously offered). This means that supervisors will be able to sign up for a particular cohort and attend three days of training with the same group of supervisors. This will enable participants to experience a collaborative environment and develop relationships with other supervisors from other state agencies. In the Boise area, the training will take place once a week over a three week period. In the North and Eastern parts of the state, the cohort will be set up to accommodate participants for three consecutive days.
The first Boise cohort is scheduled to begin November 3rd. Class size has been set at 24 participants to ensure a positive and comfortable learning experience. The courses have been redesigned in a building block fashion and each one will build on the previous courses in the series.
Please note that as a cohort, supervisors must register in advance and day of class walk-ins will not be available.
On DHR's website under State Employees/Supervisory Academy/Training Schedules you will find the list of cohort dates and venues currently offered from November 2015 through June 2016.
