HR Forum sponsored by Forbes - HYBRID EVENT

Book your place

Chamber HR Forum is designed to provide an exclusive and confidential environment to share ideas and best practice whilst spending time with fellow HR professionals. HR can be fast moving and complex and these regular meetings will feature guest speakers, networking opportunities and site visits plus the latest updates on legislation.

At this next event we'll hear from event sponsor Forbes Solicitors, plus we're delighted to welcome guest speakers from Westfield Health, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council and boohoo.

Emma Swan, Head of Commercial Employment at Forbes will address some of the HR issues that businesses are raising about whether employees must have Covid vaccines and provide proof of vaccination etc as Government guidelines start looking to a return to work message rather than work from home, when we are on the cusp of social distancing rules being relaxed or possibly removed.

Emma will also discuss some of the queries that her team have been dealing with in relation to managing employees who may still be suffering with physical and/or mental health issues as a result of having had Covid. There will be the opportunity to ask Emma questions on these areas and any other current employment law or HR issues that you may be grappling with in your business.

Ruth Walsh, Head of HR Operations at boohoo will explain boohoo's current processes and challenges and unveil a unique trailblazing approach to the apprenticeship levy.

Plus we'll hear from Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council on championing 'Diversity' in your workplace, and Health & Wellbeing Consultant Carole Calland from Westfield Health on how you can affordably support employees' mental and physical health with their healthcare plan.
