Why line manager training is crucial to business success
Line managers are under intense pressure to develop high performing teams whilst following HR policies and procedures and supporting employee wellbeing. Despite this, many organisations have overlooked the development needs of their people managers. A lack of training can negatively impact the implementation of organisational policies, employee experience and wellness and employee retention levels.
Courts and employment tribunals come down hard on inadequate or out of date HR policies and procedures. However, they’re equally critical when procedures are adequate, but line managers fail to follow them. There has been a spate of recent, expensive, court and tribunal settlements featuring inadequate or inappropriate management decisions.
