The maintenance of a good employee / industrial relations atmosphere in an organisation depends on the promotion and maintenance of discipline on the one hand while at the same time it is important that grievances are handled effectively in accordance with the principles of natural justice and fairness.  Equally it is important that HRM practitioners and line managers are aware of how to ensure the conduct of a robust investigation in relation to disciplinary or grievance matters.

The aim of the Employment Law - Discipline, Grievance and Workplace Investigations workshop is to provide HRM practitioners and line managers with an awareness of the law and best practice in dealing with discipline and grievance matters and an appreciation of the responsibilities that they have in relation to adhering to discipline and grievance procedures. The workshop also aims to provide guidance relating to the organisation and conduct of investigations.

Performance management is a process which contributes to the effective management of individuals and teams in order to achieve high levels of organisational performance. As such, it establishes a shared understanding about what is to be achieved and an approach to leading and developing people which will ensure that it is achieved.   Remote working (or a blended approach of time in the office and time working remotely) presents managers with particular challenges in terms of managing performance and collaborative engagement.

Line Managers have a very important role to play, not only in managing people and operations day-to-day, but also in implementing HR and other organisational policies and in supporting their team's development and fostering a culture of staff performance, positive employee relations and employee engagement.  It is also the case that Line Managers should play an active and constructive role in leading and managing change in their organisations.  This is particularly the case in organisations which devolve these activities to Line Managers.  In view of this, it is important to give proper thought to how Line Managers are supported and developed to make sure they have the necessary knowledge and skill to be successful in their role.

The IPA is pleased to offer our HRM Training for Line Managers course as a modular tailored training programme to meet the specific learning and development needs of Line Managers in your organisation.
