Manage Workplace Risk

In addition to their duties as trainers, each consultant on EFR’s team works with multiple employers to manage risk and workplace behavior. As a result, EFR offers your organization the benefit of their expertise in such areas as harassment prevention, diversity awareness, dealing with difficult employee behavior, conflict management, leadership coaching, the development of effective teams, and wellness promotion.

Applied Learning & Coaching Solutions

Consistent with its approach that’s focused on the practical application of classroom learning, EFR offers blended learning experiences to training attendees. Each can be offered the option of follow-up coaching conversations with one of EFR’s trained leadership coaches to assess their individual development needs and review how the training content can be applied to meet their needs. Together, training attendees and their coach identify goals for the future, discuss barriers, challenges, and possible solutions, and identify next steps to be accomplished.

A Training Leader

As a leader in the design and delivery of practical workplace performance training, consultation, and behavior management tools, our workplace consultants will work with you to develop a customized training curriculum for your organization’s managers and employees.

New Supervisor Development

EFR has a successful history of helping employees and managers succeed when faced with personal or professional change. Our business is people and performance. We’ll provide your organization’s emerging leaders with unique expertise as they work to become comfortable in their new roles and develop the skills they will need to help their teams succeed.

Training to Strengthen Existing Tools

If your organization already contracts with EFR’s Employee Assistance Program, then our team of workplace consultants are already available to offer 24/7 management consultation and support for employee behavior and human resource concerns. A significant benefit of the selection of EFR as your training provider will be to increase the visibility and use of the existing performance consultation and intervention support tools that your organization has already invested in.

EFR’s Training Approach

Let EFR bring an innovative focus to your organization’s training design. EFR’s training approach, featuring the practical application of learned skills via classroom learning and individual coaching follow-up, will return dividends when and where it counts, day in and day out, on the job, long after the classroom experience ends.
