The Zonta club of Santa Clarita Valley is sponsoring a “Workplace Success” workshop from 9 a.m. to 1p.m. on Saturday at the Valencia Library. This free “LifeForward” event will answer questions including what makes a “good employee” an “outstanding” employee, what is appropriate business attire, and what an employee can expect from the company.
A series of LifeForward workshops for the past several months have included topics regarding selecting a career, writing a resume, interviewing, and getting the job. This final workshop in the series will help women be successful at their workplace. Workshop presenters include Terry Kanowsky, Jo Ann Rodriguez, Don Rodriguez and Leslye Mack.
Kanowsky has 18 years of experience in hospital human resources in the areas of recruitment, employee relations and training. Her experience in training at the management and staff levels has provided her a unique perspective on how employees can achieve their full potential to meet and exceed employer expectations.
