Supervising Student Employees and Student Volunteers Effectively
Duration: 1 hour
Facilitator: Charles Hueber
Today's college student often referred to as "Generation Y" or the "Millennial Generation" has a very different set of characteristics from other generations. They not only want more from life, they demand it. They are self-confident, tech savvy, and high performers. They also require more work-life balance, flexibility at work, advancement opportunities, and a say in what's going on around them, and often times this attitude does not always mesh with the bureaucratic environment students work in. This session is designed to discuss strategies to manage today's students in an on campus environment from a work-study and/or volunteer position.
- Learn (review) the unique challenges facing this generation
- Understand the importance of the supervisor's role as an educator and manager
- Learn basic strategies for confronting issues that may impact employee performance
- Understand how to and the importance of leveraging social media and technology
- Examine the role of the over-involved parent in employment matters
- Analyze the benefits of a specific accountability system that could be implemented on your campus
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
- On campus supervisors who work with student staff in both large and small settings.
- Anyone interested in management of younger employees.
