Are you confident that you, and your managers, have the knowledge to effectively and safely handle workplace issues? 

Our one day workshop provides practical training for managers and HR professionals, whether they are new to the role or simply looking to update their knowledge, on dealing with the most common workplace issues.

1 day workshop

Small groups (maximum of 8 people) will learn our tips and tricks for dealing with issues in a pragmatic way to minimise the risk of business disruption and litigation. There will be group discussion of real-life case studies from our extensive experience.

Topics to be covered will include:

  • Dealing with disciplinary and grievance investigations, hearings and appeals.
  • How to effectively manage under performing staff members
  • An essential guide to equal opportunities
  • Approaching “off the record” settlement discussions
  • Our top tips on avoiding tribunal litigation

The workshops will be run from our recently refurbished offices in central Reading for just £495 plus VAT per attendee. A two-course lunch and an extensive set of helpful notes as a reference tool will be provided.

We received the following feedback from our last eight attendees:

“Excellent presentation, very knowledgeable and good examples which personalised the session well. The whole team were highly approachable, displayed expert advice on all queries and distilled the information into accessible and comprehensive bitesize chunks. Preparation and delivery were very high quality. Fantastic to be able to ask questions and get advice.”
