    This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action and Square Peg HR
    This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.


    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    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 practice are robust and 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.

    These particular sessions over a full day including lunch will look at: setting criteria, advertising, shortlisting, assessment tools, avoiding bias, candidate feedback and the job offer, then legal responsibilities, paying staff, tax, pensions, job analysis, policies and procedures.
