Making Staff Networks work for Me, My Team and My Organisation!

Virtual via MS Teams.

Let’s talk belonging, voice & influencing change.

As you know ‘We are the NHS: People Plan 2020/21 – action for us all’ was published in July 2020 and sets out practical actions that employers and systems will take and focus on:

  • Looking after our people – with quality health and wellbeing support for everyone.
  • Belonging in the NHS – with a particular focus on the discrimination that some staff face.
  • New ways of working – capturing innovation, much of it led by our NHS people. 
  • Growing for the future – how we recruit, train, and keep our people, and welcome back colleagues who want to return.

The pivotal role that staff networks play during the COVID19 pandemic and the potential it has to continue to play in driving the NHS Plan forward cannot be underestimated. It will involve creativity and development across a myriad of different and difficult areas, such as recruitment and retention; creating and embedding a compassionate, safe, and inclusive culture; and driving the development of a more agile, adaptive, and flexible workforce that uses new ways of working across teams and different organisations supported by technology.

Therefore, to enhance the staff experience employers must make effective use of staff networks to benefit from their employees’ full potential.

This workshop will supply you with the latest tools and strategies needed to reap the benefits of a highly motivated and functioning staff network.

Who should attend? Anyone with an interest in creating an inclusive workplace, including employers; HR managers/officers; equality leads, staff networks chair and members, wellbeing officers; senior managers; consultants; trade unions, staff network leads and representative groups in the Midlands.

Is there a cost?

No, this has been funded by Midlands Leadership and Lifelong Learning Team.
