This three hour interactive course is designed to help people deal more effectively with redundancy through effective consultations.
The course is delivered by the Director of Pragmatism (UK) Ltd Pete Colby, who is a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD and a Workplace, Civil & Commercial Mediator within the Civil Mediation Council.
Pete has held senior Employee Relations positions in organisations ranging from small businesses through to prestigious blue chip companies such as Rolls-Royce and British Steel. He has managed redundancy programmes ranging from one or two employees through to full site closures totalling thousands of employees.
Pete describes redundancy as one of the most difficult things that people who genuinely care can deal with - whether it's being on the receiving end (he has himself been made redundant twice) or managing the process itself, but he firmly believes that effective consultation with employees can make a world of difference.
Pete says "Yes, the law tells us when we should consult and how long for - but those who know me won't be surprised to hear me describe the law as simply the minimum standard. There has never been a better time to operate well above the law - how redundancy processes are carried out can be literally life-changing for individuals. They're also incredibly insightful for companies - I've seen the end result improved so many times through effective consultation with employees. We have to remember that employees are potentially being dismissed and losing their livelihoods for something that is not their fault. They deserve more than box-ticking. They deserve everything we can give them".
