EMI: Grow Young Managers into Valued Assets
Roughly 44% of all U.S. employers are looking to hire full-time, permanent employees in 2018, according to employment website CareerBuilder.com, underscoring the effort companies need to put into recruiting, cultivating and engaging staff. Top-tier skill building for up-and-coming industry management awaits at TRSA’s 54th Annual Ehrlich-Stempler Executive Management Institute (EMI), scheduled for Aug. 5-9 at the University of Maryland, Hyattsville, MD.
EMI is heralded for developing attendees’ leadership skills, as well as creating a solid return on employee investment. Linen, uniform and facility services businesses, facing high annual turnover, are particularly hard pressed. EMI’s 54-year tradition of applying modern techniques to management issues aids those who attend in tackling high-priority tasks and long-term workplace challenges specific to the industry. In classes led by academics and consultants experienced with the industry, participants complete EMI by returning for a four-day program once a year for the next three years, each with a different focus toward growing a well-rounded industry executive.
EMI draws attendees from all segments of the linen, uniform and facility services industry, from independent companies’ owners, executives and next-generation leaders to chains’ headquarters (including HR/administration) and plant- and depot-based management (GMs, branch and department heads). Individuals who have achieved TRSA’s Certified Professional Laundry Manager (CPLM) certification typically receive 31 credit hours toward recertification by attending EMI.
EMI is hosted concurrently with TRSA’s Roger F. Cocivera Production Management Institute (PMI). Now in its 29th year, PMI program participants spend free time, meals and evening social outings with EMI attendees, creating unique opportunities for information sharing and socializing among leaders in the linen, uniform and facility services industry. EMI is an all-inclusive program, with one fee covering all educational components, meals, lodging, and transportation to and from evening events.
