19th January 2018, 8:30 am - 11:15 am

Event Navigation

The first of Four HR Forums scheduled for 2018:

  • 19/1/18 – in the Skelmersdale area
  • 20/4/18 – in the Preston area
  • 20/7/18 – in the Blackpool/Fylde/Wyre area
  • 19/10/18 –in the Chorley/South Ribble area

Our HR forum and network is an information and network-packed event open to all Operations, HR and Personnel managers and professionals, business owners, and anyone with HR responsibilities in an organisation. It is truly a “meeting of the minds” which includes informational micro training from experts in the HR field along with delegate interaction and input.

This first HR Forum of 2018 will feature information and best-practice methods for Health and Wellness at Work and will include a Q&A panel at the end of the speaking sessions along with one-to-ones for interaction with other Operations, HR, and Personnel Managers from around Lancashire.

Dr. Tony Mawson of Organsiational Healthcare will be on hand to talk about employee “Presenteeism” and what we can do about it.

John Huckstepp will discuss how poor employee health can hurt productivity, quality, and safety performance while the benefits good employee health and well-being can ultimately add increase to the bottom line. Using practical and case study evidence, John will help us to understand the scale of the problem and provide some pointers on what we can do about it

Given the increase in the instance of mental health issues that Harrison Drury has been seeing, Roger Spence will look to focus on the aspect of keeping the workforce mentally well and perhaps what to do if staff falls ill. He will try to touch on some of the legal claims that can arise where there is a failure to address work related stress, anxiety etc. and how companies can mitigate that risk and manage the situation if the worst comes to the worst.

Although we are still awaiting confirmation of the exact venue, we hope to run this first HR Forum at a lovely hotel near Skelmersdale. A light breakfast and refreshments will be provided along with a great room for networking opportunities before and after the presentations.
