Would you like to ensure that your staff recognise potential issues before (not just when) they arise by putting in place training appropriate to their needs?

Training your staff to carry out their role to the best of their ability is a no-brainer. But this shouldn’t be limited to just the technical aspects of their role.

It’s not just HR staff who need training in people management skills. It’s often the line managers who are more at risk of making a decision with unforeseen consequences or failing to recognise staff issues when they arise.

We provide training to HR staff and line managers so that they have the understanding and confidence to recognise issues which might arise and how their own actions can defuse (rather than exacerbate) potential problems.

We tailor our training to your organisation and to the topics which you require. These might include –

  • Recruitment
  • Changing terms and conditions
  • Dealing with disciplinary and grievance issues
  • Managing performance
  • Managing ill-health
  • Business restructuring and reorganisation
  • Equal opportunities
  • Social media
  • Dealing with employment tribunal claims
  • TUPE and staff transfers

We can also provide –

  • An introduction to employment law (for new managers)
  • Employment law updates (for HR staff and more experienced managers)

Our training sessions give your staff the opportunity to –

  • Discuss case studies and scenarios dealing with the topic at hand
  • Exchange views and past experiences in a confidential environment
  • Reduce inconsistencies in practice across the organisation
  • Develop their knowledge, understanding and competence

Please contact a member of the employment team to discuss any issues relating to training.

What others say about us

"We used Andrew to develop and run some disciplinary and grievance investigation workshops for a diverse group of Managers. Andrew really brought the sessions alive with some interesting case studies and a plethora of stories drawn from his own experience. Our managers were engaged and informed and the workshops have provided us with a consistent standard for carrying out investigations. I would recommend Andrew as he has a wealth of experience and personable style."
