We run a number of events throughout the year, for business owners, managers and employees, with the aim of sharing knowledge and providing accessible training and further learning in whichever way works best for you.
These include workshops, lunch and learns, both online and in-person training courses, and a series of webinars, covering a range of helpful, current and engaging topics.
These provide a platform for open and insightful discussion about HR best practice as well as practical guidance, tools and resources to apply in the workplace.

Every year in the UK, more than 127,000 people of working age are diagnosed with cancer. Around 6 in 10 decide to continue working during or after treatment and the choices you make to support them are in everyone’s best interest.
Cancer not only affects people with the diagnosis but also their family, friends and colleagues, and as an employer it can be difficult to know what support to offer or even how to broach the subject.
This interactive webinar will support and guide employers so that you feel prepared and informed, should one of your employees be affected by cancer.
We will hear case studies of real experiences from those living and working with cancer and those caring for someone with cancer.
There will be an opportunity to discuss different scenarios and have your questions answered by our panel of experts. Donna, Reality HR Consultant, Tom Pimenta, an employment lawyer at Penningtons Manches Cooper and Janet Mukundu, Macmillan CAB will be on hand to help you understand how you can successfully support your people through their cancer journey in the workplace.
