The Peopletime Employee Lifecycle Training Programme

Designed to cover the entire process of employee management, this training focuses on some of the key elements of each stage of employment.
Due to the scope of the training, we deliver over half day sessions to ensure you have plenty of opportunity to discuss specific issues and investigate different scenarios.
Once completed your managers will leave better equipped for successfully managing employees from recruitment all the way through to when they leave.


During the training your managers will be encouraged to explore various scenarios and understand the importance of compliance and their responsibilities as managers. Having attended the training, your managers will have a good understanding of best practice processes across the full employee lifecycle.
