Brentwood, TN (May 28, 2010) - M. Lee Smith Publishers, a leading provider of employment law compliance training and information resources to the Human
Resources community, announces the release of a new training program, Talent Management Skills for Supervisors: Master Hiring, Firing, Discipline and Performance Evaluations.

An organization's talent management practices will often decide if it wins or loses the war for top talent. The most successful employers use such
practices to attract the most productive contributors, reduce workplace friction and turnover, and clearly communicate expectations. Talent Management Skills for Supervisors
was written and produced to meet those goals.
Each training session is conducted by Texas attorney Mike Maslanka and Candace Kollas, President of Workable Options, an HR consultancy. She has been
responsible for implementing training programs for Coca Cola Enterprises, among others.
"Supervisors need to understand that, in many cases, they can be held personally liable for their actions, if such actions are proved to be illegal,"
"And even if they aren't illegal, the result of poorly chosen words and deeds can manifest itself throughout an organization, through higher turnover
and lower morale and productivity," says Kollas.
