Event Details

HR for small charities

This workshop is for small charities thinking of taking on their first employee, or who already have staff and want to know if they are doing things right. This interactive workshop will combine HR models, case studies and action learning to explore the Employee Lifecycle.

This session will cover:

  • The key stages of the ‘employee lifecycle’.
  • Standard HR processes.
  • How to avoid the pitfalls at each stage of the framework.
  • Practical examples using case stuides and personal challenges.
  • Start to build their HR toolkit, and knowledge of useful resources.

This workshop is interactive and will involve round table discussions and group problem solving.

This workshop is aimed at CEO's and those with the HR decision making power in their organisation. 

This workshop is kindly being run by the staff at Southern Co-op. Southern Co-op is a large, regional independent co-operative operating over 270 food and funeral branches across the south of England, plus a natural burial ground in West Sussex and crematoria in south east Hampshire and east Devon.
