    Working from home has become the norm. In just six months the country has moved from an economy that left home to go to work to one that went to work from home.

    But this transition is not a simple one, and there are still many unanswered questions for employers. How do they define their policies, how do they communicate with their workers, how do they look after their health and well-being?

    We will cover:

    • Managing homeworkers
    • Defining "place of work"
    • Homeworker risk assessments
    • Employers' obligcations
    • and much more...

    This one hour module addresses the key questions regarding your management of homeworkers.  From their health and well-being to managing performance and attendance.  As homeworking is becoming more important it is crucial you learn how to manage it.

    This webinar is available to book here.

    You will need to pay on line, or contact us direct to organise.

    How do you decide that someone is performing well?  If they are, how do you encourage them to be even better, and if not, what do you do about it?  These are challenges which Managers face on a daily basis.

    This course helps Managers with these issues by having realistic expectations on what people are capable of doing; knowing when to use performance improvement plans and programmes for personal development; whilst continuing to motivate and encourage good performers.

    We have designed the course to suit those who are new to Management, as well as being a worthwhile refresher for the experienced Manager.

    Our course is highly participative, practical in content, and intended to challenge our delegates into recognising there are always different ways of dealing with performance issues

    Managing people often strikes fear and dread into Managers, but it does not have to be that way.  By coming along to our short, but informative course, Managers will gain the confidence needed to manage people, and most importantly, avoid finding themselves on the wrong side of employment law - which can be costly!

    Based on our extensive HR experience, we will talk about the most misguided beliefs that Managers hold as fact about employment law.  We will also discuss the most frequent mistakes Managers make when dealing with staff; as well as difficulties created through lack of documentation, or not knowing or following their own employment procedures.

    We will identify the key employment policies and why Managers need to be familiar with them.  This should also assist Managers to understand the importance of why these policies need to be applied correctly.

    The course will debunk myths to make sure you avoid fear and confusion when dealing with staffing issues.  We’re here to give you the confidence to manage people effectively and we’ll do this through fun interactive sessions and an extensive quiz to help reinforce the learning.

    We have designed the course to suit those who are new to Management, as well as being a worthwhile refresher for the experienced Manager, looking to enhance their knowledge.

    Dismissing staff can have serious implications if done badly.  The law requires that you have a fair reason for dismissal (e.g. restructuring is not necessarily redundancy) and that you follow fair processes.

    This course will cover the differences between a fair and unfair dismissal; why following the ACAS code and internal procedures is essential; and the key practical issues to consider when dealing with discipline, dismissal and redundancy processes.  The aim of the course is to encourage delegates to follow proper procedures and apply sound judgement.

    We have designed the course to suit those who are new to Management, as well as being a worthwhile refresher for the experienced Manager looking to enhance their existing skills, and wants to be more successful by learning new/different approaches.

    Our course is highly participative, practical in content, and intended to challenge our delegates into recognising there are always alternative ways of dealing with employee issues.
