HR Training and Development

HR Training for Managers and more…

Many of my clients want their senior staff to be confident in handling people issues. This empowers them to deal with situations early and helps with their own development. To assist with this, I can hold group or one to one sessions on understanding how to manage performance or conduct in the workplace. Equally, many clients like to be kept up to date with HR issues, often worrying about the ever changing legal environment and wanting to operate best practice. My training services also help new businesses to understand the basic requirements of employing staff. Whatever the need, I am happy to organise an appropriate session which will be informative and enjoyable.

Employee Representative Training

Certain HR and legal procedures require staff to be represented by elected employees.  In particular this applies to certain redundancy and Tupe situations.  These representatives require training on how to undertake their responsibilities and how to follow the relevant processes. I offer a ‘rep training’ service which lasts for a morning and can accommodate up to 10 attendees.  It can be done on or off site.  For more information please contact me.

Basic HR

This course is designed for operational managers and those Directors just needing an overview. It covers the following core matters:

  • HR Documentation – the contract and handbook, what are they for and how to use them
  • The employee lifecycle – an overview of having an employee from the time they join to the time they leave.  This works through all the things that have to be considered, in what could be many years, and can go right [or wrong] in that time.
  • Dealing with ad hoc day to day HR matters – such as holidays, family leave and sickness absence
