Also included in the package is A Manager's Q & A: Practical Answers to Tough Questions, Let's Get Honest Employee Handbook (written in a question-and-answer format), a pocket card for employees, a "Harassment Free Zone Ahead" sticky notepad, an optional pre- and post-training test, visual aids, and reproducible...
