Why do we manage Health and Safety?
Surely it’s easier not to?!
25 November, Wednesday | 12pm – 1pm
In this webinar we will be uncovering why we manage Health & Safety and the legal, ethical and moral reasons why it is important to keep health and safety at the forefront of the business, together with the consequences to the business if you don’t. There will also be an opportunity to ask Dom our Senior Health, Safety and Environmental Manager any of your Health and Safety questions.
2021 – Planning for the Year Ahead
10 December, Thursday | 10am – 11am
With 2020 nearing an end, we take time out in this webinar to reflect on the challenges businesses have faced in 2020 and consider what we can do to plan for the year ahead. We know that we will start 2021 still working in a Covid-19 secure way, but we will also see the UK move out of the Brexit transition period and so from 2021 we will start to see the changes that Brexit will bring to the UK.
In this webinar, we will help you to plan for the year ahead by:
1) Reflecting on the external factors that we will encounter in 2021
2) Exploring what financial support is available to help businesses during Covid-19
3) Understanding what resource options are available to help businesses respond in 2021
4) Understanding how your current workforce may be impacted by Brexit so you can plan ahead
5) Examining what changes you need to plan for when recruiting from outside the UK.
HR Solutions and Crispin Rhodes
Walk to The Gambia
Date to be Confirmed
HR Solutions and Crispin Rhodes have a chosen charity, The Oasis Project (The Gambia) that runs a school in Bakau, The Gambia, that needs financial help and we know, from personal experience, how much of a difference that support will make to the lives of those living in that community. Concentrating on education will give the children the possibility to better themselves and the wider community. This charity is run purely by volunteers and so every penny raised goes to support the school. We have identified the need to expand the school to enable us to take in more children and our goal is therefore to raise £30,000 to build, furnish, equip and staff two new classrooms. During the webinar you will hear from Crispin Rhodes Director, Angela Rhodes, who has been out to The Gambia and worked in the school, since when she’s been passionate about raising funds to ensure the success and future potential of the school.

The Leadership Perception Gap
HR Solutions are delighted to welcome guest presenter Steve Middleton, Senior Business Engagement Manager at Engagement Multiplier who discusses a challenge lurking for leaders that can impact everything from employee engagement, to culture, to success during a period of change. This challenge is referred to as The Leadership Perception Gap, which in short, is the difference between the perception company executives have of the effectiveness of their organisation’s leaders, and the perception of their employees. When the perceptions differ too greatly, the resulting gap represents a real impediment to the successful execution of company initiatives. Whether or not you believe your organisation (or your clients’ organisations) is suffering from The Leadership Perception Gap, Steve’s webinar will provide you with invaluable insight and practical steps you can take to improve HR and leadership effectiveness in with what he refers to as ‘The 7 C’s”. He provides some practical, free resources that you and your clients can use that will help overcome many of the challenges business leaders face today and for the foreseeable future. Timing is everything. It’s never been more important to ensure employees and leaders are aligned, focused and maximising the talents they have between them to ensure business success and resilience. Steve also recorded a short video for you here to whet your appetite still further. We hope you enjoy this high energy, high impact webinar.
Brexit – Right to Work
New Immigration Points Based System
The transition period for exiting the EU expires on 31 December 2020, at which point there will be no more free movement of people.

Building a great employee benefits package

Covid-19 Your Employment Questions Answered
Recorded live on 7 October 2020
As we see the tightening of lockdown measures in the UK and further announcements from the Government on all aspects of managing Covid, this interactive webinar will answer all your employment related Covid-19 questions. If you would like to find out how to recruit using the Kickstart Scheme, how to manage an employee returning to the UK, managing self-isolation absences or to find out more about the new Job Support Scheme, then please join us. You can submit a question in advance, simply add your question when you register for the event.
The past few months of 2020 have been extremely challenging to both business and employees and consequently, a lot of change is taking place with businesses restructuring and making redundancies. Research also suggests that half of employers still anticipate redundancies when furlough ends in October 2020. The consequences of change such as this can lead to disgruntled employees, employees disagreeing with decisions made or feelings of unfair treatment in how they are being managed at this challenging time.
Conflict in the workplace is an obstruction and so resolving disputes will be key to moving your business forward through change. In this webinar, we are joined by guest presenter, Kelly Barfoot, who discusses the role of mediation in the workplace and how resolving conflict can help you to move your business forward.
How to Support Your Employees
Covid-19 has been devastating both for business and individuals personally. The psychological impact has been huge and as we try to build back business, we must take time to consider the support that people will need to move forward with us, especially those who have survived being placed on furlough, or from having been made redundant. People are our most important asset and in order to become competitive again and rebuild stronger, it is important to consider the needs of your employees. This webinar explores how we can do this.
Health and Safety at Work
The Working Environment During Covid Times
In this webinar we will introduce you to our Senior Health, Safety and Environmental Management Consultant, Dominic Greenwood who will discuss the ongoing challenges of returning to work in a Covid-safe manner. We will provide you with practical steps you can take and discuss the risk assessments we have developed for you to ensure the ongoing support of your employees as you return to the workplace.

Working With and Managing Young People
With the recent introduction of the Kickstart scheme, this webinar recording provides practical guidance on working with and managing young people.

Government Kickstart Scheme

Future of Work – New Employment Practices
It is inevitable that the world of work will have to change in response to Covid-19. We are already needing to change the physical set up of our workspace, but what do we need to do more broadly post Covid-19 to retain competitive advantage and come out of this unprecedented period more successful? Whilst the vast majority of people are still employed in traditional full time jobs with one employer, we will explore in this webinar how a move towards creating a more atypical form of workplace may allow businesses to respond to the Covid-19 in a way that means they can become more competitive and successful. In this free HR webinar recording, we look at the different types of employment contracts, the use of flexible working and home working as well ways to upskilling in this new world of work.
Managing Diversity in the Workplace
Diversity and inclusion is about recognising that we all have many great things in common but at the same time, we also have many great differences that sets us apart from each other. In the world of work, everybody should have the right to equal access to employment, equal pay and access to training and development. This webinar looks at how inequality throughout the employee lifecycle can exist, even without us realising. We look to share our thoughts on how we can focus on tackling inequality at work.
Protecting Your Business
At a time of uncertainty, you will want to do everything within your means to keep your business running smoothly and to limit risk. As we continue to respond to Covid-19, managing the employment relationship is even more critical to ensure your business can survive and thrive. The biggest cost to any employer is its people and people are essential to a business’s success. Careful and sensitive management of ending as well as maintaining the employment relationship whilst balancing the needs of the business will therefore be key.
In this webinar we discuss how you can protect your business from the risks associated particularly with ending the employment relationship. We explore how you can help to mitigate claims of whistleblowing, unfair, and constructive dismissal claims as well as those in connection with discrimination.

Interesting Cases of 2019
We reflect on some of the big employment cases in 2019. We’ll paint the scene, break down what the court ruling said and consider what we can learn from them about the way we manage our employees. We’ll also look at some cases which ended up with individuals having to pay out of their own pocket – and not just managers, but employees who went rogue too.
Grievances | Top HR Tips
In this webinar we are going to give some valuable tips and will run through a checklist of key things that every manager can get right to help ensure a grievance is handled properly. Grievances are concerns, problems or complaints that employees raise with their employers. Sometimes, and in fact ideally, these concerns are best approached informally. But sometimes they need to be handled formally and especially if they are serious. Good line management skills are essential for handling grievances correctly and for minimising the risk that the problems worsen or even result in a claim.
