Upcoming Webinars

February 19, 8 pm Eastern

Topic: Dealing with Difficult Employees by Detoxifying Your Workplace

Speaker: Anthony Kurec, MS, MASCP, MLT(ASCP), H, DLM, State University of New York (SUNY) Upstate Medical University, Syracuse

Description: If you ever had to deal with a difficult employee who performs their job well but has a hard time getting along with others, how do you turn that employee into a team player? What are the "signs and symptoms" of a disengaged employee? These types of employees can create a toxic workplace that impacts productivity, employee retention, and morale. Implementing certain management practices can help mitigate some of these issues with the intent of minimizing workplace incivility.

Instruction Level: Basic

March 5, 8 pm Eastern

Topic: Knowledge Sharing and Succession Planning in the Laboratory

Speaker: Beth Warning, MS, MLS(ASCP)CM, University of Cincinnati-College of Allied Health Sciences

Description: Many laboratories have individuals who are strongholds in the workplace – they have a wealth of knowledge and understanding about lab principles, test methods, and operational procedures. As these technologists begin to retire, or move on to other opportunities, they take with them a wealth of knowledge of laboratory procedures and organizational history. Loss of knowledge may impact the proficiency and productivity of the lab. How can we retain this expertise in specific lab methods and basic tenets of testing? This presentation will provide an overview of knowledge sharing and how information can be retained and talent can be fostered through succession planning in the laboratory.
