Disciplinary training for managers

Short, just in time videos to support managers when investigating and managing disciplinary situations. There when they need us most!


Our disciplinary training for managers provides your team with the microlearning tools they need to have great people conversations. Supporting managers through all stages of the disciplinary procedure from informal to formal, each 10to3 video gets to the point in under 4 minutes, clearly explaining the what, the how and the why of the disciplinary meeting they are about to chair.

We pride our animated team on being there for managers when they need it most, so even if you’re off saving the world (or just stuck in another meeting), we are in the room when HR can’t be. The best part? Your managers have the confidence they need to have great quality conversations, and they are far less likely to put their foot in it.

Created by learning professionals and employment lawyers, 10to3’s disciplinary training for managers can be used as a standalone training resource, embedded into your LMS or used to bring your HR policies and procedures to life. We can also customise the videos for your organisation (more on how awesome that can be here).

Take a look at some examples below, and drop the team a line to say hello if you’d like to chat. If you’re already sold – request a free trial here for access to the full collection of videos.
