TIP Offers Specialized Knowledge to Attendees in 2014

Category: General — NYSID @ 3:58 pm


NYSID’s Training and Information Program (TIP) provides cost-free, quality training and essential business information that assists our members and private-sector business partners in creating leaders who will enable, motivate and inspire their staff.

NYSID encourages past participants and those new to our training opportunities to participate in TIP

Since 2002, TIP has been a highly regarded, cost-free “best practices” resource for communicating better, achieving goals and developing talent. We’ve had 9,500 attendees so far… and counting.

TIP 2014 emphasizes change through process improvement for individual and organizational effectiveness. Our professional development opportunities span over 19 different topics designed to help you leverage enhanced strategies for managing people, making meetings work, complying with Preferred Source contract requirements, improving customer service, and much more.

The first TIP session of 2014, “Employment Law Developments & What They Mean for Your Agency,” presented by John Bagyi, Esq., James Holahan, Esq. and John Ho, Esq., all of Bond Schoeneck & King, will take place on March 5 from 8:30-11:30am at the NYSID Training Center in Albany. The session will also take place on April 9 at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Victor and May 20 at F.E.G.S. in New York City.

As always, a new TIP year introduces cutting-edge process improvements to the current roster, including these four courses presented in partnership with SourceAmerica:

  • CIMS and GB Certification: Raise Your Standards and Improve Custodial Operations
  • Quality Work Environment (QWE) and Employee Research Systems (ERS): Getting Started
  • Communications Plus: Communication Tools for Difficult, Awkward and Problematic Workplace Situations
  • Compensation Fundamentals: Creating Market-Based Job Grade

To register for these sessions or to see a full schedule, visit http://www.nysid.org/events/events.cfm.

We also remind new members and associate members that it’s mandatory for them to attend NYSID’s Member and Associate Member Orientation within six months of joining NYSID, and prior to receiving a NYSID contract. It is open to all staff interested in learning about the NYS Preferred Source Program.

During the half-day session, Karen DiBella, NYSID’s vice president of Contract Administration and Quality Management, provides participants with an overview of NYS Preferred Source Program regulations, responsibilities and benefits. Each participant receives a copy of NYSID’s Member Manual.

To request this session at your organization or company, just contact NYSID’s TIP Coordinator at 518-463-9706 or 1-800-221-5994.

In addition, NYSID’s Lending Library has many publications and resources available for loan. Please visit http://www.nysid.org/tip/lending-library.cfm to view all of the Lending Library books, CD’s, DVD’s, etc.

TIP will continue to evolve with your support. We encourage past participants and those new to NYSID’s training opportunities to participate in TIP.
