Support for managing staff

Groups and organisations that employ staff need to be mindful of the legal obligations that they have as employers. As part of our core Sector Development support we are funded to provide some initial training, guidance and support to voluntary sector groups and organisations in Glasgow.


Training for Supporting Staff

We recommend our training  as a good place to start and run a monthly HR highlights session designed to cover the ‘hot topics’ that managers should be aware of that month.  They are an opportunity to hear from GCVS HR Service Manager Natasha Gordon and to ask key questions.  Most recently they have been dominated by Covid related staffing issues such as furlough, working from home and now vaccine policy.  They evolve each month.  Check out our programme and who can attend our sessions.

“When managing at a distance I learnt it is better to ask, provide a checklist, provide equipment and be specific than hope everything is okay.”

“Do you know your employee is alive? I know now it is the employer responsibility for ensuring the work environment is safe even for Work From Home
