Managing Talent in the Hybrid Workforce

About this event

How will these supports work:

Each company will get 9 hours one to one mentoring with an expert HR consultant. This will help them to plan, manage and evaluate systems in the hybrid workplace.

You can tailor the offering to suit as all the work is in house with the consultant.

The programme is focused on assisting owner managers to ascertain the opportunities, challenges and suitability of remote working and will be delivered on a one to one basis.

Ten County Carlow businesses will work individually with expert advisors who will help the businesses assess their options and obligations for remote working in their business. At the conclusion of the one to one sessions each company will have an implementation plan to allow them plan for remote working in a strategic manner.

The new programme developed by the Local Enterprise Office and Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet will allow businesses in County Carlow to critically assess whether remote working is suitable for them and to put a practical plan in place to implement remote or hybrid working if they determine these new forms of working are an option for their business and their employees.

“Carlow businesses will need to examine their business model and prepare for the changes that will come with their employees working from home on a more permanent basis” according to Cllr. Fintan Phelan, Cathaoirleach of Carlow County Council. He was speaking at the launch of a new ‘Working From Home’ support programme for Carlow businesses which has been developed by Carlow County Council’s Local Enterprise Office in partnership with Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet.

Irish employees will soon have the legal right to request to work from home. Cllr. Phelan added “In the future staff might be working from home on a full-time basis or working a ‘hybrid’ model, working from home some days and from the office on other days. This will bring huge challenges for all employers and will require many businesses to adopt to a new model of working.”

Séamus Doran, Assistant Head of Economic Development & Enterprise with Carlow County Council’s Local Enterprise Office said “Businesses in Carlow will face new issues around legal, insurance, health and safety and personnel subjects. Some of the common questions businesses are now asking include whether they will be obliged to approve all staff requests to work from home, who will be responsible for insurance and health & safety when employees are working from home and how do businesses put systems in place to monitor the work of employees at home.”

Speaking about this new programme, Ashling Ward, Network Manager of Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet said “Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet are delighted to be partnering on this much needed programme for our member companies. Never before has there been such upheaval and change in the world of work and it’s implications for staff. This programme gives companies an opportunity to explore best practices specifically suited to each individual company in terms of people and talent management. The panel of experts specifically assembled to make best use of expertise in the field of managing staff are now available to help, guide and mentor. We welcome applications now”

Organiser Carlow Kilkenny Training Skillnet

Organiser of Managing Talent in the Hybrid Workforce

The Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet was established in January 1999 by a number of Senior Managers in organisations in the Carlow Kilkenny area. Initial discussions showed that the organisations shared common training problems, namely,

  • Access to information on courses / training, and new technologies available for training purposes
  • Sourcing training programmes
  • Finding courses that were relevant to the specific needs of each organisation
  • The location of available courses

By working together, these organisations have developed new, low cost, customised, and locally based solutions for their management and staff.
