CPD Courses and Workshops Available

  • Attendance Management

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    Absence is a major frustration for employers of all sizes and sectors and yes; people become unwell. It happens. But managing attendance is not about punishing people for being ill. It’s about being proactive in addressing attendance issues head on and setting up a framework of expectations that enable employees to understand what their employer expects of them in terms of attendance and the implications of not achieving those standards. This course covers attendance management; both frequent short term and long-term absences linking into a potentially fair dismissal for both conduct and capability. We explore the challenges of ‘stress’ being a factor in some cases; as well as giving you practical tools to use to effectively manage attendance in the workplace.

  • Capability Management

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    Performance can drop for many reasons and one of the key questions you need to answer before starting any formal management procedure is whether under performance is because they ‘can’t do’ their job; or they ‘won’t do’ it. The first is a question of skill; the latter is a matter of will. This course focuses on the former and supports managers in building an effective performance management process including; learning how to address under performance informally in the first instance; linking back to performance appraisals and probationary reviews and creating the foundation of the formal process.

  • Conflict Management

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    It’s a sad truth that not everyone will get along with everyone else during their life. At work this can be particularly challenging and ongoing conflict between employees can be extremely damaging to your business and have a devastating impact on workplace morale. For managers; it is essential that you can recognise and promptly resolve any conflict arising within your teams to prevent things escalating to crisis point. This course explores the various causes of conflict within the workplace and gives you practical tools to help you resolve conflict in a positive and productive way.

  • Difficult Conversations

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    No-one likes being ‘told off’ and no one enjoys doing the telling; well most people don’t in our experience. As managers you have a responsibility to ensure that you address difficult and challenging conversations with your teams in a prompt and effective manner. From personality clashes to personal problems; this course helps managers identify when they need to have a difficult conversation and gives you practical tools to help you do it right. Drawing on the delegates personal experiences and giving time to prep from real life scenarios; we support you to tackle difficult conversation with confidence.

  • Disciplinaries

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    This isn’t a court of law; and you don’t need proof beyond a reasonable doubt. What you do need though is to present a reasonable case to an employee for them to understand what your concerns are about their conduct and to respond to the company’s position. There is a legal framework within which you must work when managing a formal disciplinary process; and this course helps you do just that. From reviewing the investigation and running a fair hearing through to making a reasoned and fair decision about what; if any; formal sanction may be right in the circumstances. We give you a real-life case to review and decide whether you would take it to a formal hearing or not; as well as real-life tribunal case summaries to decide whether you think those dismissal decisions were fair or unfair.

  • Equality And Discrimination

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    The modern workplace is highly diverse and; with cultural trends and world events constantly changing; this makes it essential for organisations and managers to keep on top of the latest best practice and legal pitfalls of harassment and discrimination at work. Did you know that someone doesn’t even have to be working for you to raise a discrimination claim against you? Even with a sound policy on equality and discrimination; you can still be at risk of claims based on what your employees say and do to each other. This course is a key element to giving you a legal defence against these claims. A plain-speaking; practical course using real life examples of cases and workplace blunders that will help you manage equality and discrimination challenges in today’s diverse workplace. Two versions of this course are available: Education and awareness for employees; Compliance and setting standards for manage

  • Grievances

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    As managers; you must take employee complaints seriously; but they aren’t always as easy to recognise as you think. Believe it or not; an aggrieved employee may not put their complaints in writing neatly headed up ‘Grievance’; and yet as employers you need to be able to recognise and resolve employee complaints in compliance with your grievance policies and the ACAS code of practice. This course explores the various ways that employees raise their complaints and gives you the confidence to manage the grievance process correctly through to what should be a positive resolution. We also explore where grievances are not actually grievances at all and how to ensure you are signposting your teams to the correct process to address their concerns.

  • Induction And Probation

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    Organisations tend to focus more on getting people through the door; or out of it; than in managing those crucial first few months effectively. A clear; detailed and effective induction and probation review process is essential in making sure that your recruit not only feels welcome; but also has the skills and competence to do the job you have appointed them to do. Do your people pass their probation with time served alone; or do you practically assess their conduct and performance before confirming them in post? We often speak to clients about problems they’re having and one of the recurring questions we end up asking is… ‘How did they pass probation?’ This course will explore the importance of managing new employees and the latest best practice for inductions and managing probation.

  • Investigations

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    Prior to addressing conduct and capability issues with employees it is essential that you have undertaken a thorough and robust investigation into the matters of concern. You cannot present a case to an employee without first having explored all the circumstances surrounding the alleged misconduct/poor performance for them to be able to respond to the company’s position. This course takes you through a real-life case from start to finish and gives you practical and essential skills to be able to undertake thorough; detailed investigations so you can decide what the next steps are in fairly managing conduct and capability challenges as well as potentially fair and legally compliant dismissals.

  • Management Essentials

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    We recognise communication is the overriding element to good management so this course looks at some of the barriers to it; the importance of it and provides some fundamental skills and tactics to enable managers to do their job well. This course looks at management v leadership and the qualities of a good leader; touching on different management styles and their uses. We assess the teams and their styles together with investigating what motivates employees to work for the organisation. We run through the key elements of prioritising; planning and time management with group exercises and some suggested approaches to assist with this area. We will set some SMART objectives and work through goal setting for employees following an 8 step coaching model. A good manager recognises that they can’t do everything themselves and delegation is key for their teams development and to ensure that the manager focuses on their tasks effectively. Following a decision making exercise; delegates will be aware of the key steps in the decision making process and will know how to apply this in their own situation.

  • Performance Appraisals

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    The annual performance appraisal meeting is still a dreaded experience for many managers and employees alike. Global insight organisation Willis Towers Watson’s research reported that over half (56%) of companies say that managers lack necessary skills and time to manage performance well. You might be surprised by the number of clients who grade employees as good/ competent when they need further development. They then wonder why they get grievances raised when they finally start to address under performance at work. This course will provide you with understanding of what appraisals aim to achieve and to give you some practical advice and tools to do the job well.

  • Recruitment And Selection

    Training Course | AHR Consultants

    AHR Consultants

    Your people are your most important resource and as such getting the right people is essential. Recruitment can be one of the most time consuming and costly parts of running a business. Spending the time getting it right; however; is still cheaper than the potential costs of defending a tribunal claim if you get it wrong. How do you assess if someone is right for your business? A quick chat and see if you ‘click’; or a more robust competency assessment process? We start from the very beginning in this course; defining your requirements; and take you all the way through designing your role profile and person specification; advertising; assessing applicants; different interviewing and assessment techniques through to the legal requirements of not only making an offer of employment but also the risks and issues of rejecting candidates.
