Employing Staff: What Do I Need to Know?

Posted in: Blog

It can be challenging for any business (big or small!) in today’s changing world to recruit the right people, keep them enthused and motivated and continue to provide the high-quality service you expect your customers to receive.

This is also complicated by the laws and legislation that inform the employment of staff.

We recognise these challenges and are pleased to announce that help is at hand.

Business Loch Lomond will soon be launching an HR library resource.  

This resource will include information and sample HR templates to support you to recruit and retain employees whilst meeting legal obligations.

And there's more! This resource will be complimented by an HR Management development programme. This will provide you with the opportunity to attend workshops designed around particular topics relating to the employment of staff. 

Topics will include employment law legislation, how to train staff to meet your standards of service, motivating staff through coaching and appraisals and difficult conversations such as disciplinary or grievance discussions.

The 2017/2018 workshop schedule is as follows - all workshop events can be found in our Events Section and can be booked via Eventbrite.

A fantastic opportunity for businesses to help deal with the challenges of recruiting and retaining the right people.

Karen Donnelly Destination Manager

Please note that there is a small charge for each workshop to cover refreshments, lunch and any training materials. All workshops can be booked via Eventbrite.
