Collaboration is key

The Council plays an important role in enabling a company to function well in achieving its goals. In doing so, the Works Council represents its supporters, which are all the employees of the organisation. Would you like your Works Council to influence the decision making process in a positive way? Then it is crucial for your Works Council to be well grounded and well briefed. Collaboration is key and constructive, clear communication between you, as a manager, and the Works Council equally important.

Training and mentoring

A Works Council is steeped in industry knowledge, know-how and experience. Working together, all that can be used for the better. In our training sessions, a Council practices how it can effectively apply its experience during general meetings. Depending on your needs and the needs of the Works Council itself, we look for possibilities to involve you in training or mentoring exercises in your management capacity. The Works Council is an autonomous body and ought to remain so. The training courses we run are in keeping with that vision, yet are focused on longterm collaboration and effectiveness.
