Empowering Middle Managers: Insights from Research to Drive Success
Thursday, 20th July 2023
12:00pm - 1:00pm BST

Line managers play a critical role in today’s complex and rapidly changing workplace, facing significant challenges in managing dispersed, diverse and hybrid teams, all while juggling their own workload. With radical changes to working life over the last few years, many organisations have overlooked the development needs of middle managers. This oversight has the potential to negatively impact employee retention, brand reputation and overall organisational success. So, which areas of support demand urgent attention? Which groups pose the greatest risk and what are the hidden consequences of overlooking this cohort?

Launching the findings from national research conducted by esphr (from WorkNest), this webinar will explore the main people challenges that line managers have told us they face, and the capability concerns that are mutually shared by HR professionals.

Join us to:

  • Gain practical insights for upskilling line managers who struggle with the confidence and capability to support team members with issues such as neurodiversity, fertility, gender identity, and sexual harassment.

  • Discover which cohort of managers are most likely to be at risk from underinvestment and learn more about the systemic failures in most organisations, which start right at recruitment.

  • Hear from industry experts on the actionable steps you can take now to ensure your middle managers are empowered to tackle these challenges head-on and excel in their roles.
