Working with Trade Unions
10 November, Thursday | 10am – 11am
Following the pandemic, we have seen an increase in Trade Union membership and we expect this to continue given the cost of living crisis and the threat of a global recession.
It is understood that in the latest released figures, that 40% of trade union members work in the private sector.
Join us in this webinar as we look at how an employer can effectively work with a Trade Union, including how to deal with a request for recognition, what is meant by collective bargaining and how to manage the relationship between both parties.

What are protected or ‘without prejudice’ conversations?
You will have heard the phrases ‘protected conversation’ or ‘without prejudice conversation’, you may even have some experience of holding them in your business, but what exactly are they and when will it be right? This webinar explores the difference between the two and considers why you may want to use them and when.
With the government due to review the current COVID-19 measures on 26 January, join us live on Friday 28 January at 10am, as we discuss the latest developments and what this means for managing your people.
We welcome all your HR and H&S questions as we discuss the latest developments with COVID-19.
Health and Safety at Work: An introduction to mental health first aid
We all have mental health, just as we all have physical health. Mental ill health though can strike at any time and can affect people from all walks of life and after the year we have all had, the cases in mental health in the workplace have risen.
In this webinar, Dom Greenwood, our Senior Health, Safety and Environmental Manager will explore different mental health conditions and the signs and symptoms to look out. We will also look at what tools are available for businesses to be able to support their employees in the workplace.
2022: The HR Year Ahead
We welcome in the new webinar year by taking stock of what we can expect in 2022. This will include legal updates and what the main topics of interest and issues facing employers will be.
2022 will see businesses entering the first financial year following the end of the transition period post-Brexit, plus the financial changes are somewhat more significant, due to the increase in the National Minimum Wage, National Insurance Contributions, and the subsequent levy. This all follows the economic downturn because of the pandemic.
We envisage that staff planning, employee retention, recruitment and positioning the employer brand will be key for many employers to ensure that they can properly finance and maintain their human resources, and thus continue to operate in this unique economic climate.
We have already seen the beginning of some significant changes in approach which we believe will only become more prevalent next year, including: the menopause, support with domestic abuse, the protection of veganism and more inclusive policies and practices.
Join us in this webinar as we discuss the HR year ahead.
How has recruitment changed?
Recruitment in 2021 is not like recruitment of 2020. A lot has changed following Brexit and COVID-19 in how we engage with applicants, select and onboard.
In this webinar we are joined by guest panellists Michael Jay from REED online, the UKs number one job site and Teilo Morgan from Teamtailor; the leading organisation in applicant tracking systems.
Together, they share their insights on the future of recruitment and how to secure top candidates within a challenging recruitment market.
Managing the menopause in the workplace
In this webinar, we look at how organisations can support the health and wellbeing of employees undergoing the menopause. This subject can be seen as a taboo, but it should not be. It is not a one-off event taking place over a short period, but a stage of a person’s life that can occur over many years. The aim of this webinar is to promote awareness, talk about how it can impact work and offer tips and guidance on what you can do to support.
