Leading Wellbeing in Rural Context

1st November 2016 — 2nd November 2016

This one-day conference turns the spotlight onto the unique challenges presented, as well as providing a forum for exploring responses and opportunities. The conference showcases good practice case studies from cross-sector contexts, including health and social care, uniform services, education and enterprise to name a few. A framework developed by the Cumbria Rural Health Forum will help us explore diverse practices, in order to draw out generalizable responses and learning for common challenges in rural contexts. These include access, community engagement and resource mobilisation. This will lead to Open Space discussions to ensure critical themes provide important learning to take away for wider sharing and application. This process contributes to an emerging rural cross-sector forum for ongoing networking, resources and communication.

Directing Discipline, Capability and Grievance Workshop with Barbara Craig

15th November 2016

Issues of a disciplinary or capability nature, and the raising of grievances are not everyday occurrences — as such, they are usually the areas that fill most managers and leaders with dread. There are also legal implications attached to these matters that can often compound the problem. The need for managers and leaders to understand the key differences between these three areas of 'casework' and to ensure that the procedural steps are followed when dealing with them, is crucial in maintaining harmonious employee relations.

“Regulations: Friend or Foe?”

16th November 2016

This presentation based on work commissioned by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (UK Government) examines the extent to which the UK growth-oriented small and micro-businesses (SMBs) are impacted by regulations.  The seminar explores the dynamic relationship between regulatory environment and strategies for small business growth. Attention focuses on how such businesses find out about regulatory requirements and the extent to which SMBs might adjust plans to address regulatory concerns.

The results of the work suggests that there is a cost impact of regulations on these firms inherent in growth plans.  However, product-innovators in particular recognise the benefit of effective engagement with regulatory frameworks as a significant element of competitive advantage.  In several cases, regulation appears to have been a support for, or event the basis of, growth for some firms.  Not only does good regulations appear to facilitate growth but also the experience of growth alters attitudes to regulation.

The implicatoin is that for growth-orientated SMBs, not all regulatory changes are viewed negatively and that in some cases, the removal of regulatory barriers could endanger their competitive advantage.  Growth firms appear more concerned with inconsistent enforcement of rules rather than with the overall level of regulation.
