Investigation Workshop

Conducting a fair, impartial and thorough workplace investigation is one of the most challenging aspects of a Manager or Human Resource Practitioner’s role. The legal environment is now more complex than ever, pressures on managers may lead to mistakes or reactive decisions and workers are more aware of their rights than ever before. Added to this are the challenges that rapidly changing technology brings.

This workshop provides the tools and knowledge for Managers and Human Resource Practitioners to conduct a successful and mindful workplace investigation.

Contact Officer Workshop

Contact Officers are employees trained to provide other employees with information and impartial support regarding issues of discrimination, harassment and bullying. They also provide clarification about the employer’s policies and complaint procedure.

A user-friendly internal complaints system is the best way for your organisation to prevent issues of harassment and bullying from escalating into potentially costly legal processes. Such a system is more likely to succeed if staff can initially speak informally to a Contact Officer, someone who can explain their options in addressing their issues of concerns in a non-judgmental manner.

With emphasis on practical skill building, this program will enable Contact Officers to successfully fulfil their role and actively contribute to their organisation’s commitment to a respectful, non-discriminatory workplace.

Managing Underperformance

Managing underperformance, or poor performance, is often considered as a convoluted, messy and negative experience for both the manager and employee.

This workshop has been designed to offer managers the information, clarification and confidence they need to sensitively support their employees through this process, and to positively shift their perspective of the performance management practice.

Working within the current legal requirements, considering recent cases studies, and using a best practice approach, this workshop provides you an opportunity to be guided through this component of performance management, in a reflective and supportive environment.
