Getting the best out of people and navigating the minefield of employment regulation is a key challenge in growing a business. This workshop is perfect for those directly involved in managing people in businesses, both business owners/Directors and line managers. 
This practical approach provides an overview of the key tools which can help a business maximise the contribution its people make to business success and understand how to avoid and deal with some of the most common pitfalls.

The workshop will ensure you:

  • Understand the importance of effective people management to all businesses
  • Understand your key responsibilities when employing people and explore some of the challenges this can present
  • Know to find great people who are right for your business, and how to get the best out of them

From practical tips covering recruitment, employment law and disciplinary matters, to providing insights into talent management and engagement; this is a great way for you to develop your HR knowledge and understanding. This will be a highly interactive session, with a Q & A at the start which will influence the course content so that it addresses delegates’ real issues and prioirities.
