Employee Policy – Policies in Practice

The purpose of PiP is to develop your policy awareness and provide best practice guidance through offering standard or tailored sessions to those with line management responsibilities. PiP is a support mechanism for you and your teams and these sessions are designed to develop the general management skills that you need to apply the policies and procedures effectively and will cover how to handle certain conversations to help build your confidence in dealing with the staffing issues that arise day to day.

The support provided by Policies in Practice focuses on the practical application of Policy, Procedure and Process. In particular how we can better support managers in understanding and interpreting Policies and Procedures and the soft skills attached to these areas.
