Practical and legally effective approaches to performance processes

Effectively Managing Performance Workshop | 8 September


NOTICE: With the widespread outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, the health and safety concerns of our delegates, speakers and staff is our number one priority. 

The information from the authorities is constantly changing and we are doing our best to remain agile while upholding the integrity of our programme and the health and safety concerns of all stakeholders. We have therefore made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone this event until 8 September 2020

Event Overview

One of the most difficult, time consuming and intense roles of an HR Practitioner is navigating performance complexities. Even with the most sound and well intentioned performance improvement and disciplinary processes in place, the risk of legal action is still there.

The Effectively Managing Performance workshop provides an in-depth practical focus on how to manage most performance scenarios through meaningful, regular discussions and communication.
This interactive course has been carefully designed to help you take practical approaches to unravel the complexities of managing performance, as well as find ways to continue in the face of any claims or grievances made, with legal confidence.
