MANAGEMENT TRAINING 

TAILORED SESSIONS 
 
Sessions can be run in-house so that the subjects discussed can be tailored to your organisation's policies and procedures. Delegates are away from work for the minimum amount of time. Charge is on a per delegate per session basis and as such makes an extremely cost effective way of training your whole management team. 
 
CENTRED SESSIONS 
 
At one location offering places to a number of companies. If you only have one or two delegates to train, these sessions give the added advantage of attendees being able to interact with delegates from different sectors and different management disciplines.

It is common practice in UK businesses for senior management to identify exceptionally good operators who show excellent competence and potential leadership qualities in their localised work areas. Having identified such individuals, these employees are then promoted to a junior management position. 
 
The employee goes home on a Friday as one of the best people in the company and returns the following Monday with the new role of Team Leader, Foreman, Supervisor or Assistant Manager etc. 
 
We seem to expect this exemplary employee somehow to have magically acquired the people-management skills needed for the new role. A few weeks or months later we wonder why our new junior manager has not been as successful at his/her new role as he/she was at the previous one. 
DOES THIS SITUATION RING A BELL WITH YOU? 
Empact has designed, tried and tested a series of training sessions aimed at managers which takes them through the logical sequence of dealing with employee and employment-related issues. 
 
The complete course is geared towards a suitable level of understanding of the legal issues involved in the management of people at work and will focus managers on the clear understanding of the advantages to themselves and the company of good, fair and reasonable practices related to the management of staff. The pitfalls of failure to carry out management in a sensible manner will also be addressed.
