What is it? Access our Line Manager Academy with offsite development days, 30 day mentoring packages and personal development plans to upskill new line managers to be able to confidently deal with the most common people management scenarios.
Why Use it? By undertaking a programme of training and coaching with HR Savvy, new line managers will be able to confidently and dynamically handle people management situations that can easily throw a new line manager off course and expose their organisation to higher risks of litigation.
The programme will cover the basics of Employment Law that every line manager needs to know; why the ACAS Code of Practice matters, the basics of handling conduct, performance, sickness absence; how to recruit without falling foul of the Equality Act.
Then we take things up a level and look at how to communicate, understand and motivate your people to deliver consistently stronger levels of performance; how to handle sensitive conversations and know when to ask for professional help. When your managers can confidently do this, you can step back and have the time to focus on the strategic part of growing your business.
Further programmes for the more experienced manager take a more in-depth look at how to manage performance and complex areas of employee conflict.
What happens if you don’t use it? Business owners tell us that having strong line managers is their biggest challenge. Often, people are promoted into the role of a line manager for the very first time in their careers, and without training and coaching, they can not only become less motivated, they can really disengage your people which can be disastrous and it will affect your productivity and your profits.

"To do HR well, you have to be up to speed with compliance and HR issues. It’s a minefield. I don’t have the time to get my head round it all. That’s where HR savvy comes in. I am left feeling valued, assured and with less pressure."
