Collecting and maintaining accurate and valuable HR records and information can be very time consuming for your business but is an essential part of managing your people.

Metro HR’s bespoke training and mentoring programmes can help your managers develop and grow into effective managers and thrive in their roles.
Many managers become a line manager over time as their roles progress without having had any formal training, support or guidance around what being a line manager means to them and the expectations their team has of them. They may not understand what additional roles and responsibilities this brings and how to juggle those additional requirements whilst doing the day job.
If you equip your line managers with the right skills, tools and ongoing support, it will maximise their abilities to manage their team effectively and with confidence. This will minimise potential future problems and risks within the business, reducing the burden on you as a business owner/leader and help your company reach its goals. Metro HR can apply fresh thinking to your operational and strategic challenges and offer innovative solutions to address your training requirements. Typically, we provide management development training based on how to manage a team understanding the roles, responsibilities and time constraints being a line manager brings. Understanding the tools and support around you as a manager and how to manage those difficult HR situations when they arise. Sessions can be one to one, bitesize, or in small groups over a day or two, in person or via online meetings and are very interactive and thought provoking.
