RVDA webinar explores intern programs that work

FAIRFAX, Va. — Should RV dealerships pay interns? What can workers under the age of 16, 18 or 21 legally do? Is it even worth the effort to have a summer internship program? Internships can be a win-win for the intern and the company, but only if managed correctly, the RV Dealers Association noted.

RV dealers are invited to join Kelly Pinkerton and Kathryn Carlson May 24 fro noon to 1 p.m. Eastern time for a free webinar to learn how to manage summer interns for optimal productivity at a dealership while providing a worthwhile work experience for the interns.

Participants will learn when it is appropriate and required to pay interns, how to effectively structure an internship program, how to best manage Generation X, Y and Z interns, and how to handle the special challenges of supervising short-term workers.

Carlson is KPA’s vice president of human resource management products and has more than 25 years of experience in the field. She is also a certified HR professional. For the past 13 years she has focused on developing HR software and programs to improve efficiency, reduce risk, and ensures compliance for companies ranging from small businesses to international corporations.

Pinkerton is a human resources consultant for KPA with more than nine years of payroll and HR management experience. Prior to joining KPA, she was the payroll manager at First Financial Bank in Cincinnati, Ohio. Pinkerton completed her undergraduate degree in organizational leadership and business at Xavier University and is a veteran of the United States Army.

Dealer webinars are provided by RVDA’s strategic partner KPA as part of the array of educational offerings available through the RV Learning Center.

Dealers can register online for the free webinar.
