North East law firm Hay & Kilner has launched a new HR management development service to help businesses effectively manage their workforce.
HR Showcase has been designed by the employment team at Hay & Kilner, based on the needs of their clients. It provides practical guidance for making stronger decisions and helps to minimise the risks inherent in managing a workforce.
Among the first companies to take advantage of the HR Showcase service is Faltec Europe Ltd, a global supplier to automotive manufacturers.
Chris Pennison, Managing Director of Faltec Europe Ltd commented:
“The bespoke training we received was designed and delivered beyond our expectations. The training was absolutely value for money – anything that keeps me out of the Employment Tribunal is more than value for money.”
The HR Showcase team comprises experienced lawyers who are knowledgeable, down to earth and skilled presenters. They offer a range of different training styles including seminars with interactive scenario based role plays, covering all HR related topics for groups of managers and for personal individual development. Some of their popular sessions include dealing with investigation and reporting; conducting disciplinary and grievance hearings; addressing the challenges of social media and effective performance and absence management.
Neil Dwyer, Partner & Head of Employment at Hay & Kilner commented: “Prevention is better than cure. We train managers to handle all aspects of any HR process better so their decisions stand the test, which usually means less claims or appeals are made. In the long run that saves management time and legal costs. We empathise with the managers as we all have years of legal experience dealing with these matters.
Each HR Showcase programme is developed to meet the goals, budgets and time constraints of each business. We tailor sessions to meet requirements.”
HR Showcase is one of two new additional services Hay & Kilner has to offer their Employer clients. The firm also recently launched their HR Key service. HR Key is a fixed price employment law service, backed by insurance protection. It provides a solution to the headaches faced by employers of all sizes when dealing with the complexities of employment law and the ever increasing burden of compliance. Alongside telephone support, and access to scores of useful documents related to employment issues, HR key comes with the added benefits of an annual audit to review contracts and staff handbooks, regular Email updates and invitations to HR events.
