The afternoon session, facilitated by GCVS which is aimed at Managers, CEOs and Board members and will examine the HR implications relating to the above.

Change has become a way of life for many organisations - whether it’s about taking on new contracts, responding to funding cuts, or simply trying to improve effectiveness.

But when those changes impact on employees’ jobs or terms and conditions it’s important to follow the right process. Getting it right can ensure an engaged and motivated workforce. Getting it wrong can bring the opposite, plus the possibility of expensive tribunal claims.

This session will look at the law and best practice in this area including:

  • The importance of planning and communication
  • Understanding redundancy
  • Following fair procedures
  • Changing the contract of employment.

This workshop has been developed, planned and will be delivered in partnership with the city-wide Glasgow Capacity Building Group including Glasgow City Council, Volunteer Glasgow, CEIS, GCVS, Jobs & Business Glasgow and Glasgow Life.

Please let us know in the booking form if you have any additional support requirements and contact the organiser - Karen.Armstrong@gcvs.org.uk if you have any queries or require any additional information about this session

Please bring your Eventbrite ticket with you on the day, either printed or on a mobile device
