The ups and downs of the current economic climate have the potential to impact all businesses. At one stage or another, many of us will need to think how to successfully manage development and growth or consider streamlining or downsizing. Such situations can result in confusion for many businesses owners and managers in terms of how to handle staff and resources effectively, legally and ethically.

Whilst some recent news reports show that the rate of new start-ups is still as healthy as ever, there is understandable caution around rushing to take on staff and regrettably some companies will be forced to let people go.

Professional advice on these specialist areas of law and HR can be complex and costly, so we’ve created a training event which will provide you access to experts in their field who will deliver an invaluable session that will cover:

•The impact of the credit crunch on resources
•What to consider when taking on your first member of staff
•The pro’s and con’s of permanent staff vs freelancers and associates
•How to deal with redundancy

Ruth Boulton, Director, The Training Point UK Ltd and Penina Shepherd, Managing Director, Acumen Business Law will address the relevant advantages, disadvantages, legal obligations, rights and human resources and paperwork that surround these issues so that you come away armed with useful knowledge and tools to apply in your own businesses.

Although there is a lot to cover in this session, we will be avoiding confusing jargon and drawn out lectures and instead be focused on delivering constructive, practical advice in a straightforward manner with an interactive Q&A session to finish.

Sign up now to get the inside knowledge and safeguard your resources and the future of your business!
