Join the CIPD Developing Line Managers Conference — Aligning HR with line managers to deliver your people strategy 

What has become clear during the pandemic, is that the role of line managers is more crucial than ever when it comes to employees’ health and wellbeing. Positive management approaches are imperative to protect and support people as they deal with the challenges and opportunities of the current context. 

Line managers are uniquely positioned to handle employees’  queries and deliver the information they seek. More than the HR manager, line managers know their team members the best, and they are best suited to deliver the assurance and guidance that they need. So how can you better support your line managers so they can take care of their teams?

Join us on 12 October, in London or online, and discover how to provide your line managers with the best tools and framework as they enhance their teams’ transition from remote to hybrid work.

Conference takeaways:

  • Upskill your line managers on how to manage a diverse workforce
  • Learn how to provide your leaders with the best tools to enhance the bond with their teams
  • Leverage behavioural science, wellbeing and virtual performance management to better upskill your line managers
  • Gain practical insights on how to train your line managers to support their teams’ mental health in a sustainable way
  • Discover how to create a stronger partnership between people teams and team leaders
