Our team of specialists are ready to help your business today

Upskilling your management team through regular and effective HR training is not an optional extra.

To take your business to the next level, it is crucial those responsible for managing your staff are professionally trained for the task.

Managing people is a real skill that needs to be developed over time. As an employer, the onus is on you to provide training and development opportunities to help your managers develop themselves to better manage your workforce. Without this, they will struggle with their team which in turn hits your bottom line.

We’ll review your business objectives, identify key areas where HR training is required, then deliver courses to put your team on the road to success.

I recently took part in a Management Development training programme with a couple of other colleagues. The content that Katie & Cath delivered was very insightful and gave us all a really clear direction going forwards. There is always a positive welcome and professional feel when you walk through the door at Howarths and the level of support that the team give us as a business is brilliant. Would highly recommend them for all HR needs

I/we have been using and utilising Howarths for over two years. They are our right arm when it comes to HR and have helped develop our staff handbook and policies along with guidance and advice on a range of specialist subject matter. Each member of the team has been exceptional and hugely knowledgeable each time we've asked for assistance. I/we could not operate without them and I'd recommend them and their services to anyone looking for expert help and support. Kevin

I have dealt with Howarths for many years now and i have to say it has been a fantastic experience. The friendly, knowledgeable and understanding service i get is second to non. I attended a CPG event on Wednesday and again this just reaffirmed what i felt already. A well organised and excellent leaders event with two inspiring speakers. Added to their caring dedicated culture to their staff and the Howarth foundation i can't recommended them enough.

The team at Chandley Ovens just completed a major reorganisation involving a significant reduction in force, the creation of an employee owned company and the TUPE transfer of employees from one entity to another. Charlotte and the team at Howarths provided excellent advice in a timely fashion that was always in context and pragmatic.

Excellent service! I have dealt with Howarths over a tribunal matter. Their service has been first class. From day one we have felt supported and out minds put at ease. Their expertise helped to guide us along the way and took much of the stress out of the situation with their re-assuring manner. There has always been someone to deal with a matter, advice is quick, prompt and professional. I would have absolutely no hesitation to work with them again, and will continue with their HR services.

When I started working at Howarths I had a HR qualification but only the basic employment law knowledge. I learnt so much about employment law over the two years I was there due to the support from such a fantastic team - Gavin, Charlotte and Sarah. Because of their support and patience I have just won my first tribunal claim which would not have been possible without these guys. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Howarths are a fantastic company to work for based on true family values and I am proud to say I was part of that.Much love everyone

Howarth's is a wonderful company to work for, they care and look after their staff and customers like no other organisation I've come across. The expertise in their field is second to none, any business having issues with Health & Safety/HR and Employment Law please give them a call you won't be disappointed with the service. They are small enough to care and big enough to deal with the most complex issues.

We have used Howarths for several years now and they have always proven to be professional, knowledgeable and most of all genuine. They care about our business and our staff and have made the effort to get to know us really well over the years.All the team are approachable and willing to help. They have been a huge asset to us in the countless situations we’ve faced as an employer over the years and I’m not sure what we would have done without them.Also the training days are great fun and massively beneficial to all the staff who attend.A fantastic company to work with.

Howarths HR are great at what they do, but the best thing about them is that they are brilliant people who are great to engage with. Their advice is first class, and their charitable foundation does some fantastic work in the community too. I'd definitely recommend them.

I was an employee of Howarths for almost two years and thoroughly enjoyed and valued my time at the company. Everyone at the company is so warm and friendly, and it really is like being a part of a second family. Howarths took initiative to support my development in the most valuable way possible, and it is a real shame that my family life has moved me down South. I will miss it and all of my colleagues truly, however I can honestly say that there was no better company to start my career journey with.

Howarths is always there when you need them, their staff are 100% up to date on all employment, HR and H&S issues and always give you the best advice based solely on your needs and requirements. I would recommend Howarths to anyone and everyone, be you an individual or a large company. You will not get better service, I guarantee it and above and beyond all that professional stuff, they are all genuinely nice people who care. That word ”care” is massive, and should never be underestimated.

We have worked with Howarths for many years now, and have always found the service extremely good. Charlotte is always exceptionally professional, friendly and very knowledgeable – a pleasure to work with even though often dealing with some challenging situations. Whenever we have needed support from anyone in the team, they have always been quick to respond and given useful advice on such a broad range of HR subject areas. We know that we can trust the advice given and would recommend them highly.

Management training strategies

Do you know you have untapped potential within your management team, but need that extra bit of support to identify how to unlock it?

Starting with your business objectives, the Howarths team will work with you to identify key areas for development for your team and then create a management training strategy that’s bespoke to the needs of your organisation and ignites the very best work from your managers.

We’ll help you create a management training structure that blends regular refresher workshops with frequent coaching in new management skills to deliver results and ensure your managers are at the top of their game.

HR training courses and workshops

Our HR training courses for managers can be delivered at a time and place to suit you. Our team can visit your office, or you can come to us. Alternatively, we can deliver group HR training via video call.

Howarths can support you with a range of HR training sessions, covering all areas of management, to give your team the toolkit they need to effectively manage your staff. Just some of the topics we can cover include:

– What good management looks like
– How to get the best out of a team
– How to manage different personality types
– How to handle difficult conversations
– How to conduct disciplinaries and investigations
– How to manage sickness absence and lateness

If you’ve got a particular topic in mind you’d like to cover, we can create a bespoke training course for your team. All our HR training workshops are delivered by our experienced, enthusiastic HR team who consistently receive excellent feedback.

Senior Leadership training for managers and business owners

When you’re at the coal face running your business, it’s easy to put your own personal development on the back burner.
Our senior leadership training programmes help business leaders be the best they can be. They identify the behaviours and qualities senior leaders need to demonstrate to get the best from their teams, and link these to achieving tangible business objectives.

We work with business owners, managers and other senior leaders to coach them through a bespoke programme of management training that builds a well-developed senior team where every person understands how their actions, behaviours and outputs contribute to business success.

If you’re after one-to-one senior leadership coaching, we’ve got that covered, too. We work with many small business owners to understand what success looks like for them, before coaching them through bespoke leadership training to help them get their teams on board and reach that common goal.
