“Line managers are at the front end of the challenge of ensuring that staff are engaged and happy, and that teams are working productively. The importance and difficulty of this work has intensified in the Covid-19 pandemic. Many receive little support with the often tricky task of managing people. We ask ‘what works’ to develop line managers as people managers.”

Professor Julia Rouse, Project Director

Online masterclasses for line managers in Greater Manchester, 22nd and 25th March

If you’re a manager and would like to enhance your people management skills to make a real difference to work quality and productivity, Manchester Met can help.

Through a new project, The Good Employment Learning Lab, we are offering interactive training sessions, delivered by HR experts, to address a range of management challenges.

What is The Good Employment Learning Lab?

Funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), launched in January 2021, this practical new research project is focused on using evidence from research and practice to develop and test effective ways of supporting line managers to manage people.

The first session will focus on:

• Managing a remote team
• Managing an agile and secure team through the pandemic and beyond.

Join us on 22nd March, 14:00-16:00 or 25th March, 10:00 – 12:00.
