Mandatory training will be automatically assigned to new staff

It has been agreed with the Equality and Diversity office that the online "Equality & Diversity" training module will be automatically assigned to all new employees, and to those who have not previously done the training, to encourage compliance in this area.

New staff will receive an email, inviting them to complete the training 2 weeks before the training is due. The email will contain a link to complete the course through the Learning Management System.

If the training is not completed, further reminders are sent by email on the due date, and 2 weeks after. If the training is still not completed, a final reminder is sent to the staff member and their manager, 3 weeks after the due date.
