People Management the Legal Framework

The Health Service currently employs over 100,000 people in a diverse range of occupations, who are deployed in numerous settings and who provide a wide range of health and social care services to the public. Approximately 10% of these employees are Line Managers with varying degrees of responsibility for service delivery,

It is essential that these managers have the skills to ensure that their employees perform to the standards necessary to successfully achieve service imperatives. People management is an integral part of every Line Manager's job and they require the appropriate training and support to equip them to fulfil this role.

The People Management - The Legal Framework programme is a training tool to support the development of people management skills. The objective of the programme is to provide relevant learning tools required by managers to strengthen the employee relations aspect of their people management role.
