From Hiring to Firing

Ken AllisonCEO members from experiential business learning group Leaders Forum 9 enjoyed a session full of great content and insight into employment issues from expert Ken Allison. The workshop, “Hiring to Firing” (built around an Alan Sugar storyline which really works) was delivered with authority, skill and good humour. Ken managed to bring to life a subject matter which is often thought of as a little ‘dry’. He received great feedback from members including “You made this topic accessible and interesting – I now realise that I can be proactive and take preventative actions to avoid tribunals and poor staff outcomes – which is really motivational”

This session gave us many take aways, including:

  • Answers to employment law questions that CEO members are currently tackling;
  • The confidence to deal with legal challenges made by employees;
  • An awareness of forthcoming legislation;
  • An understanding of how to deal with poor performance, attendance and conduct;
  • Exactly how to hire and fire within the law!
  • How to protect our commercial interests
  • and above all

  • increased peace of mind!!
