Addressing staff discipline issues is never easy and at times can be an absolute minefield of problems for managers. It is, however, an issue that all managers and supervisors do have to deal with from time to time and being prepared and educated is the only way to ensure a trouble-free work environment. Notwithstanding this, the application of effective and fair processes is equally important from a staff morale and motivation perspective and, therefore, an essential skill for managers to master.

The programme will be presented by Celeste Allan, a practicing labour attorney and industrial relations specialist and will include the following key topics:

  • Managing Discipline Effectively
