Lockdown - a reminder
Friday 18 December 2020

Lockdown - a reminder!
During the current national lockdown, the rules are that people may only leave their home for work if they can't reasonably work from home. If someone cannot work from home they should continue to travel to their workplace. This includes, but isn't limited to, people who work in critical national infrastructure, construction, manufacturing, childcare or education & essential public services.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) (England) (No.4) Regulations 2020 states that ‘employers should take every possible step to facilitate their employees working from home, including providing suitable IT & equipment to enable remote working’. Further, where people cannot work from home, employers should be flexible and help employees avoid busy times & routes on public transport. An offence under this regulation is punishable on summary conviction by a fine & if a director is involved, or neglect can be attributed to a director, both the director and company is guilty of an offence & liable to be prosecuted, proceeded against & punished. A fixed penalty notice issued in respect of a business restriction offence, will be £1,000 for a first offence rising to £10,000 for repeated offences under the Regulations. #workingfromhome #lockdown #riskmangement

Success of development via Zoom!!!

2020 - People Development
Covid-19's impact on business has not let people development (L&D) escape. With the March lockdown came the cancellation of all L&D from the books for 2020 & 2021. Then, around June & July, there was an epiphany with businesses realising that there was an opportunity with products such as Zoom, & with people getting used to working virtually, that L&D could continue. Plus, it was an ideal time to upskill people. And so we were asked by several clients to develop & run long-term Leadership & Management programmes for their leaders. This week, we have successfully completed one such programme for a world-wide manufacturing company: the programme included our 1 hour Pop-Up Power (TM) sessions (https://lnkd.in/gijA-JZ) with pre-work of reflection & case studies ready for breakout group discussion, & action planning. This has been incredibly successful with fantastic feedback. The virtual experience has been viewed as positive considering it is the 'new norm'. So, if you are interested in developing people & want to work collaboratively with us, please contact us either via Linked-In or info@interpersonnelonline.com
We look forward to working with you.

Zoom into our Pop-Up Powerhours (TM)
Monday 28 September 2020

Pop-up Powerhours (TM) are now being delivered virtually via Zoom.   This suits the current working climate where people may still be working from home or from different sites around the country or, indeed, world.

 

Our Pop-up Powerhours have all been translated to a virtual delivery model which is working very well.  Indeed, we are almost half way through delivering a Leadership and Management Programme for a key clients. The programme is modular with the following topics being covered:

 

  1. Leadership
  2. Performance Management
  3. Grievance
  4. Discipline
  5. Absence
  6. Capability
  7. Delegation. 

 

Pre Zoom workshop materials are emailed to delegates one week prior to the Zoom session. This allows preparation of the topic including case studies, followed by a one hour Zoom workshop between 2 and 3 times per month.   The sessions are interactive using features such as polls and breakout rooms.

These workshops are ideal for training/imparting knowledge to teams who are working at different locations. No travel is required and, therefore, the time is used wisely and with less cost with small impact on the working day.

 

 Popular topic areas include:

 

  1. Leadership and Management
  2. Discipline, grievance, capability
  3. Delegation
  4. Absence
  5. Behaviours inside (and outside) the workplace *
  6. Objective Setting *
  7. Recruitment and Selection*.
 
Up-to-date issues relating to Covid-19 are included in all Pop-Up Powerhours (TM)>

Pop-up Powerhours (TM)
Wednesday 12 August 2020

We are thrilled to be working with one of our biggest clients, an international manufacturer who has asked us to develop a Leadership and Management programme for 24 of their team leaders.

Those leaders are scattered between two locations and, therefore, we have developed a Fast Track Leadership and Management Programme in the form of our tried and tested Pop-Up Powerhours (TM). The Programme consists of seven modules supported by a module playbook for preparation before the leaders attend a virtual hour's session on a set topic. 

This will be rolled-out in September and finishes in December.

A great way to train and develop leaders and managers in a cost-effective environment. 

 

We'll let you know how it goes!

Are you policy ready for the 'new norm'?
Monday 03 August 2020
Return to work – the ‘new norm’ - Be policy ready!
It's said that almost half of the UK’s workforce has been working from home during the lockdown & the 'new norm' means fewer people working in the office full time.
With lockdown being lifted in stages, it's crucial organisations are ready for the workforce to return. The government has provided guidance for some sectors. As part of preparation, organisations should review current policies to ensure clarity about ways of working, e.g., the Health & Safety policy to include info re risk assessment of additional hazards posed by Covid-19; the introduction of a Social Distancing Policy to ensure clarity about this way of working.
Interpersonnel can review, update & introduce policies & procedures.We want to help ensure you are up-to-date & prepared. We recommend a review of the following policies & introduction of new ones as part of your planning:
1 Data Protection and GDPR
2 Health & Safety & Wellbeing
3 Flexible Working
4 Homeworking
5 Social Distancing
6 Grievance, disciplinary and capability
7 Whistleblowing.
