Having the appropriate people management policies and procedures in place makes a real difference to the effectiveness and efficiency of your staff recruitment and retention. It is extremely important for both your employees’ development and the management of staff departures.

Lexcel People Management Toolkit, 2nd edition is the essential guide to this area and has been fully updated to Lexcel Version 6. This edition:

  • contains an assimilation of the 2011 Code of Conduct
  • reflects the changes as a result of policy and case law
  • includes a new section on health and safety
  • incorporates a new section on temporary workers.

This practical toolkit contains templates to help you with staff planning in line with your business needs and will help you to achieve best practice, with or without full Lexcel accreditation.
