Law firm spreads the word

We're hosting a second series of advice forums in Shrewsbury following an unprecedented response from local businesses.

The move comes after we initially ran interactive HR and Employment Law in Practice (HELP) forums in Telford, and businesses in Shrewsbury were so impressed that they asked for their own programme of events.

So we took the forums to Shrewsbury on a trial basis, and the response has been so positive that we are now organising a second series of workshops.

Backed by the National Westminster Bank, the aim of the forums is to keep businesses up-to-date with what is happening in the world of employment law, and to offer them the chance to network with other employers and Human Resources people to discuss local trends.

On average around 40 businesses attended each event, and the feedback questionnaires which each delegate completed show an overwhelming demand for more. Delegates have also given us a list of specific topics they would like us to cover at future forums, and we are extremely pleased that Shrewsbury businesses are so keen to hear more about the advice we have to offer.
