Staff training for leadership and management

Why it needs to be a priority, and how to go about it

Employment law is like the glue of any successful business – it supports employers and employees and protects the rights of both parties. But it’s complex and constantly changing. And on top of everything you do, keeping up with your latest rights and responsibilities as an employer can be hard.

Whether you want to refresh your knowledge or grow a team member into a management position, investing in education is one of the best things you can do for your business. It ensures that everyone is on the same page.

Here’s why management training is a crucial piece to your business puzzle.

  • Protects your business

Employment law is in place to protect both parties, and if you don’t follow protocol, you could face costly and time-wasting grievances against you. But when everyone in the company knows what they can and can’t do under the employment law umbrella, there’s much less room for things to go wrong.

  • Supports your leaders

How are your managers going to lead a team if they have no direction themselves? If managers must guess how to handle difficult situations, each will approach things differently – and your business systems become a mess. Management training will boost your leaders’ confidence and expertise so that business runs smoothly from the top.

  • Boosts employee engagement  

Leadership training gives managers the necessary skills and knowledge to support and develop their teams. That means they get the most out of their people – growing motivation and engagement and boosting morale within the workplace.

  • Helps business thrive  

If your workplace is uninformed and unaware, it’s a recipe for things to get messy – fast. On the other hand, upskilling your team means everyone’s up to speed on current employment law, so you have more time to focus on other things – like growing your business.

Safeguard business with management training

Employment law can feel confusing and overwhelming. But upskilling with a day of training can get everyone on the straight and narrow. It’s why we created management training that we tailor to fit an organisation’s unique needs – either with ongoing 1-to-1 coaching or one-day workshops.

Our management training covers a host of topics that leaders face day-to-day: 

  • What a manager or team leader can and can’t do when it comes to employment law
  • Effective communication with employees
  • What good leadership looks like
  • How to get the most out of your people
  • How to deliver feedback
  • How to have difficult conversations
  • What to do if an employee isn’t performing
  • How to motivate, engage and retain employees
  • Differences between poor performance and misconduct and how to address both

Staff training – your number one tool for business success

Employment law is forever changing, and it can be hard to keep up. But neglecting this area could have dire consequences – at best, confused staff, messy systems and poor employee engagement, and at worst, legal, financial or reputational damage. It’s why upskilling your team regularly needs to be a priority if you want your business to thrive.
