I have advised managers on a number of complex employee relations matters such as sickness absence, disciplinary, grievances, performance and appeals.
Having been exposed to a number of different situations over the years, I understand the importance of responding with the appropriate level of emotion and humanity, whilst still remaining professional and achieving what’s best for the business.
