Here at FVA we spend a lot of time supporting organisations who get into employment/HR difficulties - many of these issues could have been prevented through greater confidence and improved practice. The hassle, expense, broken relationships, months of stress could all have been avoided. We strongly encourage organisations that employ staff to ensure their procedures and practices are robust; that staff and Board members responsible for line managing people have the skills and confidence to do so well. Attendance at these sessions would go a long way to achieving that. We can also, between FVA and Square Peg HR, provide additional, customised support to organisations to review policies and procedures.
Frances and Carolyn of Square Peg, supported by senior FVA staff, will deliver the sessions. Between all of them, they bring decades of experience at HR Director/Consultant level and as a specialist employment solicitor, representing employers and employees in disputes. All the trainers have expertise of directly working for third sector organisations and their Boards.
This particular session will look at: implementing grievance and disciplinary procedures, how investigations should be conducted, what needs to be recorded and by who.
