How you will benefit

Poor performance, careless behaviour and intermittent absence can creep up on employers. “Nipping it in the bud” is always the best policy, but it takes confidence. And, when it doesn’t work, more formal processes may be needed. In this workshop experienced consultants Malcolm Martin and Fiona Whiting help you realise how easily these matters can be tackled safely.

You will be able to gain confidence so you can:

  • set expectations when these need spelling out
  • investigate potential disciplinary matters
  • hold a fair hearing
  • keep the right records
  • tackle intermittent absence
  • develop an action plan to deal with longer term absence

In our seminar we encourage delegate involvement to reach practical answers. Employers attending will take away a toolkit of techniques to help reinforce the confidence gained.

  • 30 minute HR Surgery (after the workshop) – provides delegates with the opportunity to gain free HR advice from our experts regarding any current HR challenges.
