Levy Africa Network provides practical, applied Training Solutions with a focus on Employee Relations, Practical Economics and HR/IR Matters

Practical Economics

Employees and managers need to understand at a practical level how a company generates income, the constraints placed on a company, the impact of market forces on a microeconomic level, and global events on a macroeconomic level as well as its inter-relationships with all stakeholders from suppliers and customers, to employees and providers of capital including shareholders and lenders.

Unconscious Bias / Diversity & Inclusivity

Unconscious bias is a natural, well-intended process. Our brain wants us to be as efficient as possible. However every time we see someone we automatically attribute certain characteristics to them without being aware of the process. These automatic attributes result from past experiences and culture and can have a deep influence on our perceptions of people. They can lead to wrong decisions in recruitment, promotions or compensation or poor financial decisions and could hinder your diversity and inclusivity initiatives and scupper your attempts at pay equality. This course seeks to quantify unconscious drivers and adapt processes to improve objectiveness and boost performance

Discipline and Dismissal

Poor Work Performance

Dismissals for Poor Performance are hotly contested, awkward and difficult to handle due to:
