Expert to Address Workplace Trust at Free Seminar

Trust in the workplace, a topic of particular interest to human resources managers, business owners, team leaders, training specialists and plant managers, will be addressed at a free presentation by Tom Wunder, president of Influence Systems, Inc., a training and development firm in Boulder, Colo.

It is set for the Ramada Airport Inn, formerly the Sheraton Inn, in Bloomington, Minn., on May 9 from 8-10 a.m. "The Business Case for Workplace Trust," is sponsored by students from the School of Business and Economics at UW-River Falls.

Wunder will discuss issues such as why organizational trust matters, what undermines workplace trust, and how mistrust in the workplace can affect the bottom line. He'll offer practical suggestions for creating an environment of trust, developing organizational and individual trust, and actions that can begin to make a difference.

Advance registration is required. Call UW-RF Assistant Professor Claire McCarty Killian at 715/425-3335, or e-mail Claire.M.Kilian@uwrf.edu. Check-in begin at 8 a.m. The presentation will begin at 8:30 a.m.

The event is coordinated by Killian and three graduating business administration majors enrolled in a Human Resources Seminar at UW-River Falls: Lynelle Freidlund, Eagan, Minn.; Brenda Hoese, Mayer, Minn. and Carole Segebrecht, Roberts, Wis.
