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.
