The line manager is a crucial player: developer, coach, talent spotter, engager, motivator, performance manager, communicator, workforce planner, change agent. Much is expected of line managers, who represent the vital link between organisational priorities, and the translation of these intentions to actions on the ground. Yet managers themselves often feel overloaded by the combination of roles they are asked to perform and the operational targets they are required to meet.  How can HR best support the line?

The mini-conference was an opportunity for delegates to network with their peers from other organisations, and benefit from IES’s depth and breadth of expertise.
