Training and Development e-Book Packages

As well as being to select your own titles from a library of over 80 with a Useful Guide subscription, we have also put together the following packages. These packages contain Useful Guides which all relate to a common theme and deal with various aspects of a particular topic. For example, the First Line Managers package contains 12 Useful Guides which all cover different essential skills and elements of being a successful new manager.

Purchasing one of these packages will allow you an unlimited number of downloads for a 12-month period, making them a perfect stand-alone resource or a complement to your existing staff training provisions.


Healthy at Work Package

The health and wellbeing of workers is not only a legal responsibility for managers, but a healthy and happy workforce frequently results in greater motivation and productivity, as well as reduced levels of staff turnover. Workplace health, safety and wellbeing is therefore a vital consideration for managers and directors of any organisation.

Health and safety in the workplace covers a range of different areas, including the risk of physical injuries, mental health, employee welfare/facilities such as access to drinking water and toilet facilities, work-life balance and much more.




First Line Managers Package

Being a manager can be one of the toughest roles in business. Not only is there a tremendous amount of pressure involved through being responsibly for a number of people as well as the direction of the business, but there are also a broad range of skills which need to be learnt and utilised in order to be an effective manager.

Consequently it is little wonder that those new to a managerial role for the first time, or those who are about to become a new manager, require a lot of support, training and guidance at the start of their new position.




Leadership Package

Leaders are essential for a business, or indeed any organisation, to function effectively and move forward. Without a leader, a group of employees will quickly become a dysfunctional group of individuals working in different directions rather than a cohesive team all moving towards achieving the same goals.

Being an effective leader requires a person to possess a variety of attributes and skills. Some of these they are born with, whereas others must be learnt and developed. There are so many, and the challenges and personalities of people and situations are so varied, that the best leaders never stop learning and honing their skills.


Useful Guide Library Subscription

All Useful Guides are also available via an annual unlimited user licence in the form of a Useful Guide Library subscription. This allows you to make the Useful Guides available to all of your employees as part of their training and development resources.

There are currently over 80 Useful Guides available to choose from, covering a variety of different topics and issues including personal development, management and leadership skills, communication, health & well-being and productivity to name just a few.

Your unique Useful Guide Library will be a dedicated portal accessed by secure username and password login, and a download tracker for monitoring the number of Guides downloaded since the start of your subscription. Library and download tracker setup is included in the cost of the subscription.
