Employment Law – Addressing Performance Management

25 September 2019

 from 9.30 to 12.00

Location: Price Bailey, Tennyson House, Cambridge Business park, Cowley Park, Cambridge CB4 0WZ

The  Support Cambridgeshire event is FREE to any community organisation in Cambridgeshire

Ineffective performance management has a dramatic impact on the success of any organisation, its impact and the productivity and engagement of its staff. In these difficult times we all need to be as effective and efficient as we can be. For many charities it can be difficult to know the best way to deal with staff performance issues. Price Bailey have offered this important training to Cambridgeshire charities to help them manage and plan the process to get the best result for all concerned.

Who this is for?

The session will be helpful for any managers, line managers and trustees – anyone involved in managing staff.

Session Leader

The session will be run by employment lawyers at Price Bailey Legal Services LLP.

How will it help me?

Have you ever had to have one of those tricky conversations about performance or attitude with a staff member or volunteer? Is this the type of conversation you put off again and again until it seems too late to address the matter? Have you laid awake at night wondering how you will handle a poor performing employee? Do you wish that you had more confidence in dealing with these situations?

In the session, Price Bailey Legal Services will be offering some practical advice about how to improve performance management including how to effectively appraise staff, how to have difficult conversations, and how to deal with poor performance.

Helping Communities Address Conflict

15 August 2019

 from 9.30 - 16.00

Location: 16-18 Arbury Court Cambridge CB4 2JQ

Community-owned solutions to local conflicts

This workshop is part of an EU initiative Learning Communities for Peace (LCP), which has been evaluated and developed with the University of Cambridge. The resulting toolkit has been developed to provide people within communities (that have experienced an influx of new groups of people, dysfunction and inequality) with the motivation, tools and knowledge to begin their own community projects to resolve local conflicts. It’s a framework that begins with the hardest question - What's wrong and how can I/we make things better?

The project has been running 3 years, across 5 countries and is coming to an end 1st September 2019 so this workshop is a one-off opportunity that will consider:

  • The Story – how others rose to the challenge.
  • Tools – how to begin plan, structure and deliver a project.
  • Experience – dealing with inevitable challenges and barriers to change along the way.

Thanks to online analytics we now have access to a wide range of data (through Google Analytics to Facebook Ad Manager to more niche platforms) about our clients and supporters, their preferences and behaviours.

All this data is available to us within a few clicks, but we often don’t understand how to interpret our results and how to use them to improve our marketing campaigns.

During this online webinar we’ll look at one of the most powerful analytics tool that’s available to all of us for free - Google Analytics.

To receive information to enable you to watch the live Webinar and ask questions please contact Cambridge CVS on enquiries@cambridgecvs.org.uk or 01223 4646969.
