Empower your managers with our training courses

Managers are the key to effective employee relations. They’re uniquely placed to affect not just retention, but engagement and productivity, and are fundamental to a business’s HR transformation journey.

AdviserPlus can give your managers the confidence to deal with ER issues more effectively with our manager capability training.

We’ve helped our clients by providing managers with the capacity, capability and commitment to do more than just their day job; helping them to spot signs of poor performance and well-being issues as early as possible – before they become a problem.

We offer a range of training courses and all of them are currently being delivered in either a live, virtual, or interactive format, in addition to onsite face-to-face training where appropriate. All of our training is delivered by experienced subject matter experts.
