Event description
Managers are expected to manage the performance of individuals in their team and this isn't always an easy task. This blended and engaging online course covers good management practice in a setting where managers are encouraged to learn from each other's experiences and are able to get HR advice on current issues. You’ll have an opportunity to review the council’s employee performance management procedures, consider the principles, benefits and responsibilities associated with performance management and the key techniques, skills and conduct of an effective performance Improvement meeting. 

Often addressing poor performance can be a challenge for managers and this course aims to provide you with a space to find out an overview of everything you need to do and ask questions to make sure that you are on the right track. This course promotes positive performance management and the steps you can put in place to prevent poor performance in the future and therefore we would recommend all managers attend this course whether they are managing poor performance or not.

This course is open only to line managers working for South Gloucestershire Council.
