Banking on business success

Businesses from all over Shropshire are benefiting from specialist advice, thanks to a local bank.

The Commercial Banking team at The Royal Bank of Scotland, in Shrewsbury, is supporting a series of seminars which aim to help companies tackle Human Resources and employment law issues.

We've been running the HR and Employment Law in Practice (HELP) forums which have proved extremely successful, and they are now in their second year.

Brian Seadon, Senior Manager, Commercial Banking, at RBS, said: “In today’s difficult economic climate, we are keen to help our customers ensure their companies remain successful.

“We are very pleased to support the HELP forums, which give companies the opportunity to receive effective professional advice that really can make a difference to their business.

“By following the advice the Martin-Kaye team offers, businesses can ensure they operate in line with the latest regulations, avoiding possible pitfalls, and so increase their chances of remaining profitable.

“We now have over 40 companies who regularly attend the advice sessions, and their continued success is evidence that we are providing a service that meets a real need in the local business community.”
