Forbury People's HR and employment update

Welcome to Forbury People’s Autumn update. We’ve had a busy period over the last couple months with our employment law forums on the current legal position on holiday pay and with our very popular training workshops.

We have just run our third workshop from our 2015 training programme 'Strategic Workforce planning - how to get the best from your people', please see below what the delegates thought:

"Excellent content and delivery, very relevant and thought provoking"
Simon Richards, Managing Director of IGEL Technology

“The course was very useful and informative. Great presenter!"

FPL has also been building links with our online HR resource, Employmentbuddy, which will soon be offering packages and other new services, including a discount on training events for members. Keep an eye out for these changes in the next few weeks.

Employee Engagement: the business equation
94% of the world’s most admired companies believe that their efforts to engage their employees have created a competitive advantage. At this next workshop in our 2015 programme of training and development for HR and leadership professionals, FPL consultant Sally Evans, explores the business case for investing in employee engagement.

  • What is it?
  • How do we get it?
  • How do we measure it?
  • What difference does it make?

The round table discussion will cover the very latest thinking on what motivates people; how engaged employees out perform others and how the challenges of leading a workforce of multi generations can be a force of strength and advantage. With global case studies and a wealth of roundtable experience, the benefits of engagement for high performance and growth will be revealed.
