It is crucial that businesses are designed to respond and accommodate organisational change. And as businesses are under increasing pressure to gain – and maintain – a competitive edge, reorganisations are now more commonplace than ever before. Yet businesses are often not fully equipped to plan, prepare and manage restructurings and reorganisations, potential redundancies, mergers and business transfers.
DAY ONE: Legal aspects of reorganisations
The legal framework surrounding organisational restructures is tricky and particularly difficult for the HR professional to navigate. Information and Consultation, business transfer legislation and redundancy management are but a few of the areas that HR needs to understand in order to maintain effective employee relations and avoid tribunal claims.
DAY TWO: People aspects of reorganisations
It is just as important for HR to understand and be able to implement the critical non-legal aspects of restructurings. Dealing with staff morale, motivation, productivity and communication of change initiatives is just as important as legal compliance when it comes to change management.
This unique seminar offers flexible booking options so you can choose which development area you need. And if you want to equip yourself with the skills and knowledge to successfully handle both the legal and people issues do come along to both days.
