Crisis Management: frantic improvisation or smooth swing?

How can we ensure we have the right knowledge, skills, processes and procedures in place, so that we can safely steer our organisations through whatever storm hits them? And when the crisis is over, what do we need to do to ensure everyone involved is able to recover well?

The purpose of this event is to equip HR practitioners to be ready to respond to a crisis with skilled leadership and tested plans, so that their organisation can effectively deal with a crisis, equipped with tools and knowledge specific for the HR aspects of crisis management. This equipping includes the recovery phase once the immediate crisis has passed. 

During our day together, we will be dealing with “crisis” in its broadest sense – not just the obvious immediate and high profile type such as a terrorist attack, but crisis such as burnout, sudden death or illness, a breach of confidentiality, or a past safeguarding issue that has come to light. 

In addition to being prepared and dealing with a crisis as it unfolds, the day will highlight areas that HR professionals need to consider as they build the capacity of others in their organisation - capacity that will equip them with the knowledge and tools to aid recovering well, rebuilding, and growing from the uninvited experience. 

Our speakers for the day are Tim Mercer (First Rock) and Ian Orton (Tearfund).

The cost is £20 to people from GC member agencies and churches. Cost for non GC members is £50. Refreshments and lunch are included in the price. The event starts at 11.00am (refreshments from 10.30am) and finishes at 4.00pm. Please complete the form below to book your place.
