From Tuesday 28 April 2020 our award-winning employment lawyers and HR Consultants will be hosting a programme of six weekly sessions that will have real impact on how you manage and get the best out of your staff. But that’s where we can come in and do our bit to help; by providing short snippets of learning and sharing best practice that you can manage and absorb around your weekly routine.

Benefit from our extensive experience with complimentary, bite-sized learning opportunities. The 30-minute sessions will help you walk back to the office with quick wins on topics such as absence management and conducting a hearing effectively. You’ll also pick up tips on how to tweak your day to day practice to put you on a better footing should you ever find yourself up before an employment tribunal judge.
