Keeping up with changes to employment law regulations is a challenge for even the largest organisations. That’s why we provide package of services to ensure optimum management of human resources, including in-house training, seminars, webinars, workshops, newsletters and employment law updates.

Webinars

Our 60 minute webinars are designed to highlight the strategic and operational impact of new employment law regulations and case law and the potential risks and costs to businesses of non-compliance. The webinars are usually delivered by one of our experienced employment lawyers and delegates include directors, HR professionals, in-house lawyers and senior managers and we provide practical, best practice guidance with the opportunity for Q&As.

HR Forum

We host a popular HR Forum from our London office. These are usually round table discussions facilitated by one of our experienced lawyers and serve as useful networking opportunities where professionals can meet and share their experiences. The events last around 90 minutes and are normally free of charge to attend.
