Free Model Workplace Tool offers Management Tips
Employers can check their management techniques and employment policies are up to scratch, following the launch of a free interactive online tool by Acas.
The Acas Model Workplace tool consists of ten key topics including flexible working, performance management, and discipline and grievance procedures.
Employers who are concerned about an area of employment law or management technique can select the topic and answer a series of multiple choice questions about how they manage it. Once they have submitted the answers, the tool will generate advice on how they can improve.
“Early research highlights around 35% of the first users of Acas new online diagnostic tool, the Model Workplace, are from smaller businesses of between 10-49 employees.”
said Acas head of good practice services, Gill Trevelyan.
“The Model Workplace gives these businesses the right tools, guidance and support to implement good workplace policies and procedures in everything from discipline to flexible working and pay to equal opportunities.”
