Employment Law Training for your staff

However good your policies and procedures are it is no good if your managers and supervisors have no understanding of how to implement and work with them on a day to day basis. So many workplace situations drag on unresolved or escalate out of control because of a failure to get to grips with the issue from the outset. Equipping your managers and supervisors with employment law training will empower them with an understanding of basic employment law principles providing them with and the skills to handle routine matters such as sickness absence, disciplinary hearings and grievances can save an inordinate amount of management time and avoid costly and time consuming employment tribunal proceedings.

We offer bespoke training modules and 1:1 mentoring sessions to support your staff. What makes our training different to many of the “off the peg” training packages available, is that we devise our training programmes to our clients’ specification and train to your internal policies, procedures and employee documentation.

You can build a training programme into your annual retainer with us or organise training for your staff as and when you feel it is needed. Just let us know your requirements and we will do the rest.
