Creating a Positive2Work Environment
The Positive2Work Skillnet is made up of small, medium & large companies from all sectors of the Irish Economy. The member companies of Positive2Work Skillnet have come together to explore how the intervention of effective strategies, supported by training solutions and people development, can positively impact on the quality of employees working lives and the competitive environment within which network member companies operate. The aim of the project is to create a Positive2Work environment for all employees within the member companies of the Skillnet.
To date the Skillnet has delivered training that support the areas of:
Building Resilience / Stress Management
Conflict Management / Building Constructive Relations
Change Management / People Management
While also working directly with member companies to deliver training that both incorporates the Positive2Work Skillnet objective and meets their individual needs.
Positive2Work Skillnet has approved funding until the end of 2018.
Positive2Work Skillnet provides subsidised training to member companies. Members can also influence what courses are provided by the network. Positive2Work Skillnet participates in the Skillnet Ireland Employment Activation programme. This initiative is designed exclusively for unemployed people and includes free training in skills in demand by companies combined with direct access to employers through meaningful work placements. Eligibility criteria can be found here.
Enhancing management capacity, particularly in SMEs, is a national policy imperative and a major priority for Skillnet Ireland. In addition to the suite of Positive2Work Skillnets management programmes, Skillnet Ireland Management Development Management Programmes are available to help business owners and managers improve business performance and enable businesses achieve better results.

Working with Skillnet has allowed us to provide excellent learning opportunities to all of our business areas while providing a cost effective model versus standalone vendor pricing. By utilising this relationship throughout the year our learning activities have increased, our learning costs have decreased and our ROI has never been better.
Positive2Work Skillnet have been an important training resource for KDD across a wide variety of courses over the past number of years. The online GDPR training programme that they have recently made available will allow us to deliver in house GDPR training to all our employees in a flexible, user friendly and cost effective format. We were delighted to be able to avail of this well- structured interactive training to ensure that all staff are aware of their data protection responsibilities ahead of the implementation deadline.
I have no hesitation in recommending Positive2Work Skillnet to any company who wishes to develop their staff and to employees to are seeking top quality training.
The level of service I receive from Mark Brennan at the Skillnet is superb and the website is very straightforward to use. All in all, our experience with the Positive2work Skillnet has been first class.
The one thing I’ve noticed about your courses is quality over quantity. You could pack a room and get as much in fees as possible if you liked.
Members of the IE Network find it difficult to find courses that suit their needs, but Positive2Work Skillnet keep coming up with courses and subject mater that always compliments them with their up skilling and their learning path.
