#HRHour Live Blog: Q&A - May 8th


Q. Hi #HRHour. I'm just back home after travelling & looking for work. How can I make my CV look good and account for 6 months away? (@MacKirst)

A. I do hope you enjoyed your travels and saw some wonderful places.  I would always advise that honesty is the best policy, therefore detail your 6 months travel on your CV and you can perhaps mention where you travelled and what additional skills you may have gained during this time?


Q. #HRHour What's the most important aspect when booking #training for the HR Manager? (@Trainers_Assc)

A. I would suggest that with any training, the most important aspect is the relevance to the trainee, so will the course content hit the spot and enhance skills, knowledge and understanding?  Following on from this, the other considerations will be timings, durations, location and costs with regards to the training being offered.


Q. #HRHour Any advice on how to establish some ground rules for my staff? It's a new, small team & want to set some up early on. Thanks (@GNT_Media)

A. Oh that's really encouraging to hear that you would like to put some solid building blocks in place to help to support your business and your team.  My advice would be to introduce a basic company handbook to establish some policies and procedures within your team so that all your staff have a reference manual to help them to understand the 'ground rules'.  With such guidelines in place it will ensure that all staff are treat fairly and consistently and that your organisation is legally compliant.


Q. #HRHour I'm attending a course on Performance Management. I don't know much about it - where can I find out more about the topic beforehand? (@NETweeps)

A. Performance Management can be very positive and proactive within an organisation and is certainly an essential tool for motivating staff and encouraging staff retention.  Your course provider may be able to give you some additional course content information before the course starts. Alternatively if you are a CIPD member you will have access to the CIPD on line library or you may wish to refer to acas.org.uk who often have informative documents on line.
