When: 09.30 - 12.30, Thursday 06 February 2020 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action and Square Peg HR Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £20.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
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 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.
These particular sessions will look at: setting criteria, dealing with poor performance, support and supervision, increasing personal accountability and alternative approaches to appraisals, good practice around minimising absence and return to work interviews.
