The Clatsop County chapter of the Oregon Employer Council (OEC) hosts on May 22 an "It’s Okay to Be the Boss" seminar.

This seminar is available for human resources personnel, business owners, managers and front-line supervisors interested in learning more about how to handle the pressure to increase productivity and profits by doing more with less, while trying to corral a new high-maintenance workforce that brings its own set of expectations and demands to the workplace.

This seminar is being facilitated by Grant Axtell, a Learning and Development Specialist for the Oregon Employment Department. It runs from 1 to 5 p.m. at Clatsop Community College's Columbia Hall Room 219 – check-in begins at 12:30 p.m.

It costs $70 per attendee, $60 each for Chamber of Commerce or Society of Human Resource Management members or $50 each for three or more attendees from the same company. Reservations should be made by Thursday, May 15, 2014.

The Clatsop Employer Council is one of more than 20 local chapters in Oregon. OEC members advise the government agencies responsible for administering Oregon’s workforce system on the needs of business. Membership in the Clatsop County Chapter of the OEC is free.

Businesses interested in OEC or in attending this Seminar may contact the local OEC Coordinator Lynne Fuller at 503-325-4821, ext. 228, or
