Newly elected to the Works Council (Online training)

Quick start guide

OR cursus, OR training
Discover the power of the Works Council and your potential contribution as a new player. In this course we give acces to the world behind the rules of the Works Councils Act. You discover how to use these rules as a guide to good consultation. This helps you to take your first steps to successful employee participation.

What we do
We discuss the position of the Works Council in decision-making. You get to know the main features of the Works Councils Act (WCA/WOR) and find your way in the regulations. Thanks to the practical set-up, you will develop flexibility to apply your new knowledge directly within your own organisation.

How we do this
We offer this course online, in two separate half-days. Between the dayparts you have the opportunity to use your new knowledge and insights in practice. In the second half of the day we go into more depth and there is room for your own issues. The trainer starts each part with a substantive introduction. There is room for discussion. You do many practical exercises.
