As an employer, you have a legal obligation to ensure that all your staff fully understand their responsibilities for equality and diversity. And, as vital agents for change, this training is even more necessary for your managers.
It's important that your managers treat their team members as individuals, as a universal approach won't always lead to equal opportunities for everyone. Instead, managers must learn to be unbiased, adjustable, and inclusive in order to facilitate each person, helping each employee to make their best contribution to the organisation.
Properly trained, managers can play an instrumental role in anything from recruiting a diverse workforce, to helping avoid costly employment tribunals through appropriate management of equality and diversity in the workplace.
We’ve made it easy for you to ensure your managers are on the right track with our EssentialsPlus Equality and Diversity for Managers training.
Equality and Diversity for Managers is a 30-minute training course which will give your leaders a greater understanding of equality and diversity, and how this applies to their role as a manager in the workplace.
After successfully completing this module, managers within your organisation will be able to:
- Explain the organisational responsibilities and liabilities under Equality legislation, including the importance of the manager’s role in leading the way on good practice
- Identify and understand the types of language and behaviour that support commitment to equality and diversity, and those that can lead to unlawful discrimination
- Understand how equality and diversity impact recruitment, retirement and redundancy.
