Performance management plays a critical role in any successful business, but managing and documenting workplace performance can become overwhelming and ineffective when done reactively after a problem occurs. Without a structured and clear approach, employees will not know what is expected of them and departments or organisations can find it difficult to meet productivity levels and standards of performance. Geared towards any person with responsibility for managing and leading others, this session will explore various methods to recognise, communicate and document workplace performance in a proactive manner. 

Whether you operate in an onsite, fully remote, or in a hybrid work environment, we will also discuss effective strategies for maintaining employee engagement while managing employee performance to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes.

Does this situation sound familiar? You contact a colleague who is supposed to be competent in Industrial Relations and you seek clarification on a staff issue so that you can make the correct decision as a manager/supervisor, but the answer you receive does not seem wholly accurate. You then seek a second opinion and get a completely different answer, and you are left confused. Or maybe you just wish that you or your management team was more competent in industrial relations. If any of these sounds familiar, then this workshop is for you. The complexity of industrial relations is inherent to the field, driven by the many statutes that regulate how decisions are made and actions are taken, in addition to legislation. 

This workshop will address more commonly misunderstood concepts in Industrial Relations and tackle those plaguing questions and concerns that confound managers, supervisors and even human resource practitioners. This ESC's in-company workshop will provide your management team with the correct information and methodology to confidently and correctly approach and manage people issues within their teams. 

 

Topics Covered

  • Who is a worker? The Worker Test. 
  • How long does it take for a custom or practice to be an “established practice”?
  • How to change a bad practice in your department/organisation
  • Probationers and discipline
  • What is reasonableness? 
  • What is harsh and oppressive behaviour in industrial relations?
  •  Leave eligibility vs leave entitlement 
  • Words you should never say and actions you should never take in dealing with an employee
  • What is light duty in respect of injury and maternity?
  • How long can someone be placed in an acting position? 
  • What constitutes being overlooked for acting or promotion? 
  • How long can employees be laid off, with or without pay?

What Have Others Said About Our In-House Training?

"What a Wise Investment!"

"Our entire management team attended the “Return to Work Guidelines-Legal and Policy Considerations for Managers and Supervisors” The session was an in-house special which was facilitated online, in an effective and impactful manner; and at a time suitable and convenient for our entire team. Practical, insightful and relevant are just a few words that describe the program. The examples used, the break-out sessions and the interaction with the facilitator were all impactful.

The time was well managed; the facilitator was knowledgeable, incorporating both relevant issues and respective legislation. The level of engagement was impressive for an online session. Our entire management team was fully engaged and found the session effective.

I would recommend it to any organisation that is serious about equipping its leaders to successfully handle policy matters and everyday challenges related to COVID-19."
