      SHRM Olympia is proud to present, Mr. Reid Bates. Reid is the owner of Express Employment Professionals offices in Olympia, Centralia and Aberdeen, WA. Express provides customized recruiting solutions that focus on long-term, high-skilled personnel for companies that value quality employees. He has over 35 years of business experience including 18 years as an executive with global forest products giant, Weyerhaeuser Company.

    Reid will be walking us through his presentation, titled "Can You Hear Me Now?" In which he will focus on a common complaint throughout the workplace - employees feel their bosses do not listen to them and that the organization is tone deaf to their needs and ideas. Join us for an interactive session on the topic of employee and manager communications that lead to increased employee engagement, improved retention, and enhanced productivity.

    1. Tips from The One-Minute Manager to avoid the extremes of micro-managing and under-managing
    2. What managers need to say and employees need to hear
    3. Making the most of weekly 1:1 time with employees and their managers
