How to manage and remove disruptive employees.

This has always been a very popular course!

Most managers understand capability and misconduct issues but struggle with the employee who’s actually good at their job but is somehow very disruptive and undermining. Difficult employees tend to be ahead of the legal game and know which buttons to press. 

This course is aimed at HR managers and line managers. We can discretely discuss live issues. 

It will provide your managers with the legal ‘know how’ so you can safely tackle -and if necessary- dismiss difficult employees.
