What makes a "good" employee an "outstanding" employee? What does an employer expect from employees and what can an employee expect from the company? What is appropriate business attire?

All of these questions and more will be answered at the free LifeForward workshop Saturday, Aug. 28 at the Valencia Library, sponsored by Zonta Club of the Santa Clarita Valley.

Saturday's final workshop in the series, "Workplace Success" is geared to helping women be successful once they have won the job. Participants will be able to select from donated business-friendly accessories and jewelry to supplement their own wardrobes at the end of the program..

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.

Jo Ann Rodriguez has 23 years of personal and professional job experience as a certified human resources manager specializing in employee relations and benefit management. Her workplace experience has been in the aerospace industry, where she oversaw all personnel related activities in a multi-company, multi-state environment.

As captain of the local sheriff's station and most recently commander of Pitchess Detention Center, Don Rodriguez has a wealth of experience dealing with both public and private sector employees.

Mack, president of GBD Enterprises in the Antelope Valley, has been a popular presenter at a number of LifeForward workshops in the past. She is director of empowerment training for her non-profit agency and has led popular workshops dealing primarily with financial acumen and credit issues for women.

This Saturday's workshop is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the community room of Valencia Library, 23743 Valencia Blvd., Valencia 91355. It is open to local women free of charge.
