An introduction to UEN
UEN provides training, information, and guidance to help its members recruit, train, engage and retain associates in workplaces that value sound management practices and enlightened employer-employee relations programs.
We understand that your organization’s resources are limited. It is harder than ever to recruit, train, engage, and retain your workforce. That's where we come in.
We’re here to help you with the “people side” of your business so that you can spend more time building relationships with customers, improving processes, eliminating waste, and the other important objectives that support and sustain your business.
Our members are employers of various sizes whose business sectors include manufacturing, service, healthcare, finance, and others.
Please contact us. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about your business, and to discuss how we can help.
Our training services include, for example, leadership skills, team-building, service excellence, human resources issues, and computer software. (Details)
Whether it's major surveys on compensation and benefits, responding to your questions, or providing updates on current workplace issues, we strive to be your local "search engine" for useful employment-related information.

UEN's unique network of relationships and resources can often provide the assistance you need to address a human resources need in your organization.
