This one-day workshop provides employers with the background awareness of the key elements of employment legislation. Although focused on protecting employees, legislation allows employers to manage their organisation effectively whilst still meeting their staff obligations. To do this, the right procedures must be in place and used effectively. Employment legislation is forever changing and is focused upon protecting employees. It is therefore vital that employers are aware of their obligations to staff and make sure that their policies and procedures are in line with current legislation. More importantly, clarity, and a ‘reasonable’ approach and perceived fairness are important factors in building motivation from your staff.

Compliance with legislation ensures that organisations avoid expensive and disruptive disputes with employees.

Delegates will be more confident and professional in dealing with employment issues and know when and where to seek professional advice.

Overview

Supporting those with people management responsibility. This course will enable delegates to deal more effectively with interventions/conversations to improve working relationships within their team.

Business need

Many difficult relationships in the workplace can be effectively managed by recognising the signs of conflict and then early intervention. Addressing the situation at the appropriate time will do away with the need for formal procedures which can be time consuming, stressful, disruptive and expensive for all concerned.

This workshop is designed to help delegates identify the optimum time to intervene where relationships between colleagues begin to deteriorate. Poor working relationships impact on productivity, customer service, quality of product and, ultimately, the bottom line. It will help managers identify possible “pinch points” in their team’s relationships and give participants the confidence to deal with them at the most appropriate time, in a non-threatening, informal way.

Suitable for supervisors and line managers.
