30th July 2020 | 10:00 - 11:00 Workshop
People & skills

Event description

Just about every pitch from an Employment lawyer or HR Consultant is quick to mention that if you don’t comply with every piece of employment legislation there will be a heavy and costly penalty. But you may prefer to foster a trusting relationship with your staff and to keep employment paperwork to a minimum so you can focus on innovation and productivity. How can you follow the law and keep your staff happy too? Join us with our speaker Ruth Cornish to find out more. Please note, this workshop will be held on Zoom. The online workshop format gives you the chance to fully participate in group discussion via video, ask questions throughout the session, learn from like minded business owners, and build connections. Our online workshops work in the same way as our standard events, with a limited number of attendees, and an expert Delivery Partner leading the session, to ensure you’re able to receive personalised support.
