The refresher sessions will last approximately for 1 hour, via Microsoft Teams and aim to provide an overview on the main changes compared to previous NHSGGC policies. The refresher session schedule is detailed below.
In order to book on to a refresher session, managers should select the web link beside the session on the time and date they are able to attend. Please note that some dates/ times have two separate sessions – managers only need to register for one of these sessions, not both.
If a manager would like to book a refresher sessions but the times/ dates are not suitable or they do not have access to Microsoft Teams they should contact HR Support & Advice Unit via 0141 278 2700 or [email protected] to request an informal local session.
There will also be an opportunity for new managers to attend People Development Programme which will include modules on Attendance and Workplace Investigations for further training and knowledge. The People Development Programme will be re-established and advertised in due course.
