Training & Seminars

Tailored training for your organisation

We can create tailored training on any employee relations topic you need – whether it be for your entire workforce, or particular audiences (HR team, executive team, frontline managers, etc).

The benefits of tailored training include being able to deal with the specific regulations and industrial instruments that apply to your workplace, scheduling the training onsite at convenient times for your workforce, and for large groups, significant cost efficiencies.

We also offer ‘train the trainer’ programs: we prepare the materials and train your managers or HR practitioners to deliver it, so they are able to roll it out as an internal program.

Here are some examples of our training programs:

  • Employment Law for Managers / People Leaders
  • Workplace Behaviour
  • Managing Staff Issues: Misconduct, poor performance and absenteeism/injury/illness
  • Negotiation Skills & Enterprise Bargaining
  • Employment Law Basics

One-on-one training

Do you have a difficult employee you need to manage? Would you like some one-on-one coaching and advice on how to manage them? Would it be helpful to role-play or script challenging scenarios that arise when managing staff? Or is there a particular skill you would like to hone, such as having courageous conversations about poor performance? Contact us to discuss our offering in this area.

This program takes a deep dive into the three key line manager/HR headaches – misconduct, poor performance and chronically ill/injured/absent employees. We examine the process for managing employees and then (if need be), managing their exit from the organisation. We also consider the legal risks that arise when terminating employees in these circumstances and tips for mitigating the risks.
