UOD-181203 : Microbusiness Policy Workshop

Monday 3rd December 2018, 08:00 - 11:00

What is it about?

Managing people can be complicated and the legal process surrounding employment can be a bit of a minefield. Your employees are a key asset to your business and its overall success and with the shortage of skilled individuals, particularly in engineering functions, it can pay to ensure you manage and lead your employees in an optimal manner. The focus on principles and policies such as equality and diversity, recruitment and performance management means that organisation come under more scrutiny than ever. For example, if bidding for HS2 contracts, your policies will play a significant part in whether you are considered as an appropriate organisation.

This interactive workshop will provide you with a toolkit consisting of standard policies and practical tips on how to implement these by embedding them in the way that your organisation operates.

During this time she has provided HR advice and support to a wide range of industry types and sectors, ranging from private and family owned businesses whilst at PKF Cooper Parry, to the leadership level of multinational corporations such as E.ON. Sarah’s areas of expertise include employee relations, employment law and talent management.
