A Practical Seminar for Business Owners and HR Professionals

This session aims to help you address employee challenges more quickly, equip you with knowledge of the processes you should follow, and alert you to the risks involved.

We’ll be discussing the following areas:

  • Strengthening your sickness absence framework – essential policies and procedures, robust interventions and handling sensitive situations
  • Managing performance problems – following a fair process, unexpected grievances and dismissals
  • Handling issues concerning employees’ mental or physical health – including implementing reasonable adjustments (and what to do if they can’t be met)

At the end of the session, we’ll be hosting a Q&A to give you an opportunity to put your questions to our experts.
