Burnetts Announces HR and Employment Law Workshops

Burnetts announces the latest in its successful series of seminars aimed at managers and senior HR professionals.

Burnetts has announced the latest in its successful series of seminars for managers and senior HR professionals, aimed at equipping them with the knowledge needed to tackle a range of staff challenges; from managing underperformance and engaging employees to complying with key statutory requirements on data protection and employment law.

The programme of morning seminars, to be held at The Stoneybeck Inn in Penrith during the autumn, provides practical and straight-forward advice that can be used to implement simple, yet effective improvements in to the workplace regardless of industry. The seminars will address areas of high-risk such as staff restructuring and managing poor performers. 

The workshops commence on 15th September 2016 with a Tackling Underperformance seminar. During the session, employment law specialist, Natalie Ruane, will discuss how to manage employee performance, including identifying potential risks, and employers’ rights and responsibilities during dismissals.

The programme continues in September with a Workplace Trends and Employment Law Update, which gives delegates the opportunity to get up to date on the latest changes to employment law and examine the changing political and economic landscape with regards to recruitment and HR management.

October and November are host to a further three sessions, featuring Burnetts’ legal experts and a selection of guest speakers: Redundancy and Restructuring – The Pitfalls of Managing Change, An Introduction to Data Protection , before closing for 2016 with an Attracting and Engaging Staff workshop.

Employment law Partner Natalie Ruane said, “The aim of these sessions is to provide focused and practical training for HR professionals and line managers. The sessions are full of real-life examples and all of our presenters have first-hand experience in their fields. HR management is full of grey areas - these briefings will help managers to identify and evaluate risk so that they have a much clearer understanding of their options when faced with complex management issues.”

Sessions run from 9.30am to 11.30am. The delegate rate is £15.00 + VAT. Booking is essential - to reserve your place call Dan McAulay on 01228 552215, email events@burnetts.co.uk or visit www.burnetts.co.uk/events.
