With 64% of people affirming they’ve worked alongside a toxic employee and 10% stating they observe toxic behavior on a daily basis, it’s a prevalent problem with many employers unsure of how to handle this adverse situation. Georgia Employers’ Association is pleased to provide a half-day training to equip business professionals and human resource leaders with tools and information to successfully identify and handle toxic employees. The training will take place February 27, from 9:00-1:00pm in downtown Macon.

Participants will learn how to address toxic employees through attitudes, behaviors and consequences, along with common reactions to expect while addressing these issues. In addition, the training will offer insight into organizational and managerial techniques that are effective for preventing future toxicity.

For over 35 years, Pete has provided strategic consulting and training services to manufacturing and service organizations across the U.S., Canada, Caribbean, Europe and the Middle East. Pete has worked closely with the senior leadership of organizations such as Exxon, Brink’s, EMC, State Farm Insurance, Marriott, N.C.I., Cracker Barrel, Freddie Mac and YKK.
