THURSDAY 9th February 2017
As the modern workforce changes, employing a diverse workforce is inevitable, bringing with it innumerable benefits to your business; a workforce comprising employees from a cross section of society, (many of who will have protected characteristics), encourages new ways of thinking and working, creating exciting opportunities for the organisation.
Managing equality and discrimination is therefore of even greater importance; employers must ensure workers are treated fairly, meaning it is essential for all HR teams to be fully equipped with the necessary skills to ensure the workforce is managed effectively and within the law.
The event will include a number of scenarios and group discussions with feedback from the employment team. You will also get the opportunity to share your experiences of handling equality and diversity issues within your organisations.
The session will end with our ever-popular review of the important recent developments in Employment law, which will be delivered by Peter Byrne, Employment Partner at Taylors
It’s sure to be another fantastic event for HR professionals, senior managers and business owners and we look forward to seeing you there.
Our last event was fully booked, so make sure you reserve your place for our February event by booking online now.
We look forward to seeing you on the 9th February
