Legislation Requires More Training for Government Supervisors

The Federal Supervisor Training Act, introduced by Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii), would require government agencies to provide training for supervisors. Training programs are often cut when budgets are tight, but this in turn has a detrimental impact on the employee productivity and the ability of agencies to attain their goals.

The bill requires supervisor training in the areas of:
Improving employee performance
Managing poor performers and dealing with hostile work environments
Encouraging fairness, equal opportunity and merit principles in the workplace
Working with unions and protecting employee rights
