In 2019, we are running two courses which will cover much of the knowledge and many of the skills needed to be a successful Manager of people.

We have designed both these courses to suit those who are new to Management, as well as being a useful refresher for the more experienced Manager who is looking to develop their existing skills and/or wants to be more successful by learning new/different approaches, as part of your personal/career development.

Our training courses are highly participative, practical in content, and are intended to challenge our delegates into recognising there are always alternative ways of dealing with people and/or situations.

Building Effective Working Relationships – Norwich – 4th April & Newmarket – 30th April

It is a major part of a Manager’s role to build effective working relationships. If done well, this will help create high performing teams, as well as further developing trust and respect from those that you work with, both internally and externally.

We will cover what is really meant by regular and open two-way communication skills, influencing skills (including bosses), managing boundaries and tips on how to deal with difficult situations and people (conflict resolution).

All of this will promote productivity, success and enhance well-being in the working environment.

Why Employees do and don’t turn up to Work – Norwich – 17th October & Newmarket – 13th November

Many Managers are prone not to look beyond an income stream as to the reason why people come to work. Whilst pay is important, social interaction, job satisfaction and recognition are other key motivators.

Whilst this course will look at effective methods to help control absence, we will also be encouraging Managers to better understand the root causes behind why people do not turn up for work.

Course content will include the dangers of presenteeism, the benefits of return to work meetings, and the importance of focusing on small scale, but high impact well-being initiatives, seeing as mental health and stress combined is the number one reason why people are off sick these days.

If absenteeism is a problem at work, and/or you are looking for some simple, yet practical tips on dealing with mental health issues, and improving well-being amongst your people, then this course is a must for you.

Brexit & Immigration Employment Issues Seminar – Newmarket – 9th April 2019

Immigration and Employment are very current and related hot topics. BackupHR and DavidsonMorris Solicitors are joining forces to discuss the impact of Brexit on your ability to retain and recruit EU nationals, as well as looking at the wider immigration landscape for employing non-UK nationals. We will focus on how you can assist your affected workforce (and their families), so that the Organisation and employees are ready for when the final proposals are agreed and enforced.

Immigration rules are complex and subject to frequent amendment. However, there are immigration provisions which you can use, especially lesser known immigration rules and proposed changes to the law, which could have a positive impact on retaining and recruiting your workforce.

We will also provide some practical guidance on the related employment issues and documentation that you also need to consider in a rapidly changing environment, and the costs/penalties for getting it wrong.

We are delighted that our keynote speaker is Anne Morris, a leading immigration lawyer. Anne will provide genuine insight into this complicated area of law, as well as offering real solutions on what to do. This seminar will be very engaging, and we encourage you to bring along your questions.
