The annual ‘CPD Approved’ Business Protection Masterclass

The more profitable your organisation is, the more responsibility you will have as an employer. Understanding the common pitfalls and concerns when it comes to HR, Employment Law or Health & Safety will undoubtedly strengthen your business and overall productivity while reducing your costs.

If you are not an employment law expert you might struggle to find a solution to an employee problem or tolerate the issue for fear of the consequences, even more so now because the Employment Tribunals fees are no longer payable by your employees and claims have increased by over 90%.

The best way to handle an issue with an employee is to not have the problem in the first place. The simplest and most effective way to do this is through attending an HR24 Business Association Masterclass in your local area.

By demonstrating best practice principles, you’ll be more likely to have happy, productive staff with high retention levels and increased productivity. HR24 Business Safeguarding Masterclasses are designed to empower businesses and business owners.

Attendees will hugely benefit by being given lots of really useful guidance, advice and best practice tips and solutions that will ultimately make your life easier as an employer.
