Feedback on Acas training

widespeech

Acas training can boost an organisation's productivity and profitability, increase motivation levels and ensure less conflict arises in the workplace. But don't just take our word for it - read what some of our customers have said.

"Mock Tribunal. What an excellent day from start to finish. One of the best events of this sort that I have attended. Really focused, well-organised, professional and relevant. Would strongly recommend attendance if another opportunity arises."

Human Resources Manager, Children's Charity
Mock Employment Tribunal course


"I attended the Essential Skills for Supervisors course in September 2012 and found the course excellent. The structure was interesting and informative, the venue was central, . ..and the very experienced Trainer gave each one of the small group every opportunity to give their views and speak openly about their experiences. A very refreshing approach and I took away many tips and lots of information. I am looking to do other courses also with Acas and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others. Thank you."

"As usual with all the Acas courses I have attended over the last year I found the "Discipline and Grievance" course excellent - the content and pitch clear and concise. I have recommended this to a colleague."

"I attended a course on conducting investigations. It was based near Gatwick. It was an excellent day which far exceeded my expectations. The course facilitator was knowledgeable and engaging and I learnt a lot about effective techniques and good practice as well as potential pitfalls. It was very practical and focused."

"Excellent Employment Law training session - best I have had from Acas! Aimed at the right level, covered the main topics, and left enough time for discussion and clarification. Thank you."

Employment law update course


"The session on Contracts and Statements was both informative and relevant. The trainer had a deep understanding of the subject matter and was able to succinctly pass on some pearls of wisdom to the participants. This was my first experience of Acas training and I would have no hesitation in attending further relevant sessions."

Contracts and written statements of employment course


"This was the third Acas event I have attended and I was once again very impressed. The event was excellent value for money and for companies with a limited budget it is so important to make these events accessible. Acas events allow you to field opinions and discuss matters with other people in HR / Management jobs who may have dealt with similar issues and can advise you on best practice and pitfalls to avoid - invaluable.

"The trainer was not only informative on the subject in hand but on all matters and encouraged chats and discussion in the breaks and after the training about any ad hoc matters. She gave me some advice on a matter I am dealing with at work which not only helped me in practical terms but gave me less sleepless nights over that weekend - thank you! An excellent event."

LD and HR Manager, Finance company


"Realistic, comprehensive training as usual from Acas. Lots of opportunities to discuss the application of legislation and process in our businesses and compare experiences. The Acas tutor facilitated the conversation and led group activity very well indeed. Great value, great venue, excellent quality and very enjoyable."

"I recently attended a Managing Absence at Work event & found the content to be exactly what I wanted. I was so impressed that I have now booked seven of our managers on the course to be trained on-site."

PA to Head (Office Manager and HR), Secondary School


"The training event was very informative. Legislation is ever changing and it had been a few years since my last visit. Acas ticks all the boxes , keep it simple and follow all the correct procedures. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and look forward to the next event."

Director of a small scaffolding supplier


"I highly recommend Acas for their training courses; I have attended three now and have found each of them to be conducted by competent, approachable and engaging presenters. The courses are generic yet the presenters are able to adapt to your specific requirements throughout the day. The stress course was wonderful, the presenter had us laughing within minutes, so worth every penny just for that. I was able to leave with great ideas for our senior management team to cascade throughout our business and we are already seeing the benefits."

HR Manager
Managing stress at work course


"An extremely informative and useful session. It was interesting to see the process that takes place should your efforts in-house fail and matters are taken further. It also helped as a reminder that the devil is in the detail when dealing and corresponding with staff when things go awry!"

"Realistic, comprehensive training as usual from Acas. Lots of opportunities to discuss the application of legislation and process in our businesses and compare experiences.

"I found the session very useful, it helped me gain confidence in our process and gave me the opportunity to examine and question our process to ensure we are fair and justified when dealing with discipline and grievance."

Branch Manager 


"The course was very interesting and well presented the instructor made the day very enjoyable and informative. The day passed quickly you were not put under any pressure and you were made very relaxed."

Supervisor for a medical services company


"This was an excellent training event. The content was spot on, exceeding my expectations for a one-day course. The trainer was a great facilitator and clearly knows his subject very well but also created an atmosphere in which everyone felt able to contribute and learn. My only criticism is that I wanted the course to be longer!"
