Handling Difficult Conversations – Friday 24th May 11:00 – 12:00

Handling difficult conversations is something that most of us will have to do at some point, but they can be really challenging. It is important not to avoid the conversation and managers need to develop the ability to talk about sensitive and emotive issues as part of their role.

The good news is there are some practical steps which will help in handling these conversations better and get the right result.

Join ALP and our special guest Debbie Lane of ACAS as we take a look at handling difficult conversations including:

  • Facing the problem – why is it going to be difficult?
  • Preparation and planning – what is the desired outcome?
  • Important skills required – which skills are important to manage a difficult conversation?

ACAS, the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service, works with millions of employers and employees every year to improve workplace relationships. They’re an independent public body that receives funding from the government.

This webinar is free of charge for labour providers and those who use them.

Guide to Managing GDPR for Labour Providers  – Friday 21st June 11:00 – 12:00

In light of recent guidance and rulings from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on the use of biometric data, it’s time for employers to reassess their data protection protocols.

Adhering to the seven fundamental principles of data protection is not just a regulatory requirement; it’s the cornerstone of robust data protection practices. Neglecting these principles not only jeopardizes your compliance but also exposes your organisation to substantial penalties—fines up to £17.5 million or 4% of your total worldwide annual turnover, depending on which is greater.

Join our live webinar to hear about:

  • The seven key principles of data protection
  • Your workers individual rights under GDPR
  • Processing special category data, including biometrics

Our session will also feature analysis of recent cases and deliver practical guidance for employers to implement effective data protection strategies.
