The HR Webinar Series

Due to popular demand, we have decided to share our HR webinars again. Join us on the 14th of May when our director, Adam Watson, will be joined (remotely) by Stone King’s Polly O’Malley and Craig Vincent, to discuss the common issues facing HR in education.

This is a great opportunity for delegates who missed out on the original sessions to take part in content-driven webinars, with the chance to put your questions to the UK’s leading firm in education law and get an exclusive look at school specific HR management software.

Find out about each session, and book your place below.

The 3 R's

09:30 - 10:45

This session is designed to assist you in understanding your options and obligations when going through a time of strategic and reactive organisational change. We discuss the various approaches to Redundancy, Restructure or Review and provide you with guidance in making the best decisions to meet the needs of your organisation, and the systems that can help you to do so.

 – Does your current staffing structure still suit your needs? 

 – Are you getting the best out of what you have got? 

 – Can you still afford to have the staffing structure you have?

An introduction to holistic HR. Why, what and how?

11:00 - 11:50

Every has been very busy developing its new HR system. Within this webinar we will explore what a holistic HR system looks like and demonstrate how Every has approached the unique requirements of the Education sector.

Effective Case Management

12:00 - 12:50

Within this webinar, we will discuss how organisations can continue to carry out effective case management remotely. Managing cases effectively is critical to the fair and reasonable treatment of the individual whilst balancing the needs of the organisation. This ranges from flexible working requests to capability through to disciplinaries and appeals. Knowing what to do and when as well as recording it are all pieces to the case management puzzle.

Legal aspects of managing ill-health and disability in the workplace: Part 1

14:00 - 14:40

Throughout this session, we discuss your responsibilities as an employer when dealing with ill health and disability in the workplace, and you will leave the session with a great understanding of the following topics:

• Is your employee disabled and what protection are they entitled to?
• Are anxiety and/or depression disabilities?
• Disability Discrimination and Reasonable Adjustments – an overview of your responsibilities

Legal aspects of managing ill-health and disability in the workplace: Part 2

14:50 - 15:30

Picking up from Part 1, we look at how you can cope with excessive absence and ill-health dismissal as an employer and give you a précis of the legal position. Finally, we’ll put theory into practice. Using a case study example, we’ll discuss what you should do in the event of a difficult absence scenario and options available to you as an employer.

Absence Management makes the heart grow fonder

15:45 - 16:45

We explore the increased importance of absence management as a role in effective HR both for the employee and the organisation, and the introduction of mass remote working can make this more of a challenge. In a tough recruitment climate for both teaching and key support staff it’s a key strategic goal of the best organisations to understand their key absence indicators and have efficient, robust yet flexible processes in place to intervene, support and report where necessary.
