Human Resources (HR):

Essential HR for Managers

Overview of course

'Essential HR for Managers' looks at good practice throughout the employment relationship from appointment to termination, and everything in between. Managers generally rely on the efforts of others to achieve business objectives. Most managers will admit that managing and motivating their people brings the biggest challenge in their daily work.

This course sets out to clarify some of the essential principles that underpin employing and managing people successfully. It is a practical programme based on experience and insight that encourages interaction rather than a classroom study of current employment law requirements.

Our workshop sizes are kept to a maximum of 12 delegates to ensure our experienced trainers have time to help individuals understand any complex points.

Who is it for?

This course is likely to be of most benefit to those just starting their management career. It will also be of interest to more senior managers in smaller organisations who are increasingly involved in managing people and the wide variety of issues this can bring.

What will you learn?

Starting with the essentials of forming the employment contract and recruiting the right people, the course then works through employee relations, communication and performance management.

It also looks at avoiding common problems, potential areas of dispute and what to do when difficulties arise.
