Purpose of This Training PresentationEmployee development often takes a backseat to improving business results. However, these goals are not mutually exclusive. This presentation and the accompanying PDF guidebook are designed to show managers how they can increase the returns on the time they spend developing hourly employees without increasing the time they dedicate to this activity.Quick Facts About This Training Key Audience(s): Managers of hourly employeesTime Requirement: 45 minutes as designed (can be lengthened or shortened as desired)Materials Needed: Slide projector, notepads, pens, whiteboard, or flip-charts with markersPresentation Guide for HR/Training Professionals(Please click on the View menu and select Notes Page to begin) How to UseThis slideshow is intended for presentation by HR professionals to groups of supervisors and line managers who manage hourly employees.

During our time together today, Well first understand why should you play a role in the development of your direct reports and why your role in hourly employee development is a need to have, not a nice to have. Next we will help you focus on the right activities. And by right, we mean the employee-development activities that will most significantly improve the performance of your direct reports. And then, understanding the things that make certain managers better than others at hourly employee development. In other words, what differentiates effective people developers from ineffective people developers? We will also circulate a couple of self assessment exercises for you to use after the training. We will talk about these later in the presentation.

ARE YOU ACHIEVING A RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT IN HOURLY EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT?Insert Organization Logo HereIncreasing Returns on Time, Not Increasing Time You already devote significant time to developing your hourly employees; you dont necessarily need to allocate more time to this activity.

Introduction to This Slide: Managers of hourly employees are faced with a difficult dual mandate: achieve business results and develop employees. The fact that these imperatives are not mutually exclusive is clear to many managers: roughly 75% view the development of their employees as a vital contribution to organizational success.
Indeed, despite considerable workplace demands, the average manager dedicates approximately 20% of his/her time to employee development. That is the pie-chart that you see on the left of the slide. Unfortunately, the evidence suggests that managers struggle to convert their time commitment into effective practice. The right pie chart suggests that across industries, less than half of surveyed hourly employees rate their managers as effective in their development efforts.
The key idea here is that you already devote significant time to developing your hourly employees; you dont necessarily need to allocate more time to this activity. Instead, you need to use this time more effectively. By doing so, you can significantly improve the performance of your direct reports.

Introduction to This Slide:
The business case for playing an effective role in the development of your direct reports is pretty clear: the direct reports of managers who are effective at development activities outperform those with ineffective managers by as much as 29 percent. The example on this page serves to illustrate this point. Hourly employees reporting to Manager B (a strong developer of employees) will tend to outperform hourly employees reporting to Manager A (a weak developer of employees) by a margin of 29 percent. Without spending too much time on methodology, let me explain the researchers calculation:Take two groups of hourly employees, and assume that the only thing thats different about these two groups is the effectiveness of their managers at employee developmentone group reports to managers who are very effective at employee development, the other group reports to managers who are very ineffective at employee development. Remember, thats the only thing that differentiates these two groups. On average, the researchers found that the group reporting to the effective managers will have performance review scores that are 29 percent higher.
Transition to the Next Slide: On the next slide, let us review some more reasons for you to focus actively and aggressively on hourly employee development.
Frequently Asked Questions/Discussion Points:
What does the number 100 represent in white bar to the left?The scores here are indexed. That means 100 serves as a baseline scoreit represents the performance score of an employee reporting to a manager thats very ineffective at employee development.Who decides if a manager is effective or ineffective?Hourly employees were asked to rate their managers on a scale of 1 to 7. Manager A represents all managers with the lowest or weakest score, a 1. Manager B represents all managers with the highest or strongest score, a 7. How did you determine the baseline scores and the degree of performance improvement?The performance score of the Hourly Employee reporting to Manager A represents the average performance score of all hourly employees reporting to managers who were rated as very ineffective at employee development. Roughly speaking, the performance score of the Hourly Employee reporting to Manager B represents the average performance score of all hourly employees reporting to managers who are rated as very effective. The numbers are indexed to simplify the presentation, as the magnitude of difference is more important than the absolute scores themselves.

Introduction to This Slide: On this slide, we take a look at two groups of hourly employees: The first, represented by the blue bars on the graphs on this page, are hourly employees who report to Manager A. Manager A is very ineffective at employee development. The gray bars on this page represent hourly employees who report to Manager B, who happens to be very effective at developing his or her employees. Now lets look at the differences we see in the attitudes and behaviors of these two groups of hourly employees. If we look at the upper left-hand graph, we see the impact that effective employee development has on employee retention. The direct reports of very effective managers are over 40 percent more likely to stay with the organization than the direct reports of very ineffective managers. Lets think of this in real terms: think of your highest performing employeedo you really...
