Flexible Working and Families

Many of your employees may also have responsibilities within their families. These employees will work best when working for an employer who is aware of the legal obligations and has considered procedures which comply with, and compliment, these obligations. Acas training can bring managers, HR managers and supervisors up-to-date with legislation and will raise awareness of both employee and employer rights and responsibilities. Employers will leave this valuable training with clear considerations for building a well informed policy.

Stress is a growing concern in the workplace. Recent evidence suggests that two out of five employees suffer from work related stress. This leads to absence from work with a huge cost to UK employers of 13.5 million days lost per annum. Unsurprisingly, surveys have revealed that stress results in lower productivity for affected businesses. It also makes it difficult for them to retain staff, leading to increased training and recruitment costs. This Acas training will focus on providing practical guidance on how to recognise stress in your workplace. We will explain and discuss the key components of the HSE stress management standards and how to risk assess your organisation.
