With the recent shift to more hybrid working practices, it is more important than ever to make sure that your line managers have the relevant skills to manage your teams effectively.

The role of a line manager is a tricky one. They need to be able to supervise and organise workload, but they also need to act in a way which is motivating and engaging whilst also being legally compliant. To protect your business from risk.

Perhaps you have some managers that have been with your business a while and could do with a fresher? Or maybe you have some newly promoted managers?

Often, people get promoted to manager roles because of their technical capability, but they lack the exposure, knowledge and skills to make a successful transition to management. We spend months, and sometimes years, being trained and educated to fulfil our roles as technical experts but very few newly promoted managers get specific management training.

Whatever your situation, we can help!

At Hallidays HR, we believe that giving existing and newly appointed managers the tools to do the job at the outset is paramount to success as a manager and sustained high performance for your business.

Sounds sensible but how can you be sure that all your managers:

Quite possibly, the answer to all these questions is that you can’t.

So, what’s the solution?

Through working with a number of clients on exactly this issue, we have developed an approach to close this gap.

Step one

We will help you to identify what good line management looks like in your business, taking into account your management structure, existing policies and procedures and the skills and behaviours of everyone.

Step two

We will design bespoke training sessions, either hourly, half a day or a full day (whatever works best for you) to cover all areas identified in step one. We will ensure that the sessions are tailored to your business, are engaging and that your managers get the best out of them.

Step three

We will deliver the sessions, either on-site or at our offices in person (restrictions permitting). We will test their knowledge throughout and ensure that they can apply the learning in practice.

What topics are on offer?

Whilst this list is not exhaustive, and we can create any bespoke sessions you like, some of the areas we have helped our clients in are as follows:

Benefits of investing in management skills training

Managers have the most contact with employees, who are critical to execute the day-to-day operation of your business. Therefore, they need to receive ample training. One could argue that management training for middle managers is even more crucial than training for senior leaders.

Middle managers are the critical pieces who keep your company organised and functioning well. Neglecting this level of the company often creates critical break downs, which are often not noticed until they become significant issues.

Consider these benefits for the whole of the company when you set aside part of the budget for line management training:

Overall, offering management training early on in a new manager’s career garners a solid, strong return on investment for the whole company.

Don’t believe us! Read what one of our clients had to say:

“Hallidays HR have been invaluable! They guided us through designing the training and we had incredibly positive feedback from the participants. We’re already reaping the benefits with our management teams working together, communicating more, with a heightened awareness of the business and improved working practices.” RVA Surveyors Limited
