Fair work programme - specialist advice for employers


Are you a fair work employer?

Do you know what it means to be a fair work employer and what benefits it can bring for your workforce and organisation? 

We’re offering specialist support to organisations to become fair work employers. 

Our programme will ensure you’re up to speed with ways to develop the culture, policies and practices that balance worker's and employer's rights and responsibilities.

Who's eligible?

You are eligible if you are a business or a social enterprise based in the Highlands and Islands Enterprise area.

What is the format? 

The support is provided by expert advisers and consists of a 2-hour training workshop, followed by a one-to-one session. You’ll receive a fair work action plan tailored to your organisation.

Aly Lochaber Hope

Fair work and Lochaber Hope

“It was fantastic to get expert reassurance that many of our practices were fair work friendly. Our discussions also helped us to spot new opportunities, and to consider how practical steps like improved digital processes could make life easier as individuals and as an organisation.
"It has encouraged us to work together on organisational values that reflect our mission and embed a culture that we can all get behind.”

Alyson Smith, Executive Manager, Lochaber Hope, Fort William

Lochaber Hope is an award winning non-for-profit organisation which provides counselling, mentoring, employability support, and training services.
