Online Delivery

Our online workshops are not what you would normally expect. We offer live sessions with an experienced HR or Training Consultant. They are designed to be interactive from the start and utilise all that webinar technology has to offer. We love to see and hear all our delegates and regularly use virtual breakout rooms to run small group exercises and discussions. Our aim is to engage our delegates with an active approach to learning online.


This is a programme of three interactive online sessions which will help build your confidence in the world of employee relations, restructuring your business and employee wellbeing post COVID-19. This programme is aimed at business owners and line managers who want practical advice to make their HR practices ready for the post lockdown challenges.

How to Book a Place

In order to maximise the flexibility of this programme, we repeat each of the three component sessions on a regular basis. This means that you can do them in any order, and don't need to attend consecutive sessions. You just need to attend one session of each type.

So, to book on the whole programme, simply purchase whichever session you'd like to start with via this website. Then at some later point, just let us know which dates you'd like to attend for your other two sessions, and we'll reserve you a place on these.

The different types of session are currently scheduled as follows:

Upcoming Sessions: Wellbeing

We don’t currently have any public open sessions scheduled for this course, so please contact us to discuss bespoke options.

Upcoming Sessions: Restructuring

Upcoming Sessions: Employee Relations

In-House Courses

We can also deliver this course on-demand should you wish us to run a session reserved entirely for your company. For such dedicated sessions we offer flexible delivery scheduling, minor content customisation, and discounted delegate rates. Alternatively we can combine content from this course with that from others to create a hybrid course, or design an entirely bespoke course to suit the needs of your company. We can also provide programmes of multiple courses. Please contact us if you'd like to discuss any of these options.
