Many HR problems can be avoided by giving managers the skills and the confidence they need to spot and resolve potential issues. Doing so not only means a happier, more productive workforce – but reduces the risk of an expensive Employment Tribunal.

Managers are not only the standard bearers for a company, they’re almost always the first people to become aware of any HR related problems in a business – and a potential minefield for you when they get something wrong. That’s why it’s crucial they have the knowledge and the confidence to deal with them before they get out of hand.

Whether you’re looking to cover the basics or provide comprehensive training, here are some of the areas we can help increase the knowledge, confidence and effectiveness of your managers:

HR Compliance

From not addressing banter that goes on to spark a discrimination claim to not knowing when a passing complaint should be treated as a formal grievance, managers can be the weak link in the most well thought through HR strategies. We’ll help you give all of your managers a working knowledge of their HR obligations and help them understand what’s expected of them on a day-to-day basis.

Performance Management

Most managers recognise that the performance of their employees is of critical importance to the business. However, they often don’t know how to direct and develop others. We’ll help your managers create ongoing, constructive relationships with their employees, and show them how to build on those to motivate, engage and drive their teams.

Equality & Diversity

Equality and diversity is no longer just about meeting a legal obligation. The best managers understand the benefit diversity offers an organisation, have the skills to build inclusive teams, and know how to manage discrimination and unconscious bias. We can help you create managers that not only know how to manage diversity, but how to leverage it to build highly successful teams.

Employee Wellbeing

Many mangers today find it hard spot the signs of mental illness and don’t know how to support those whose mental health is a concern. Not only are all of our HR Consultants trained in Mental Health First Aid, we’re one of the first companies in the UK to deliver open management training in conjunction with Mental Health First Aid England to employers and managers.

The managers in your business can be a real weakness or strength in your overall HR strategy, and we can help you help them to get the very best from your people. Get in touch today and speak with one of the team about the training and coaching we offer, and how we can help you create a true people-centric culture across your business.
