Salisbury HR Consultancy wants to put city on the map for ‘best place to work in the UK’
June 2019 – Keen to build on the success of Salisbury being named as the best place to live in Britain in 2019 by The Sunday Times, local HR Consultants HJS Human Resources are behind a campaign to see the city recognised as the best place to work too.
Committed to contributing their expertise to boost the reputation of Salisbury, HJS are launching a series of free-to-attend HR seminars which will run monthly from July into the New Year.
The seminar topics have been selected following feedback from Salisbury employers at the recent South Wilts Business Expo, where HJS were exhibiting. The HR experts have also had great success with previous free HR seminars they have hosted, the most recent held at The Stones Hotel at the end of April.
The dates and topics are confirmed as:
4th July - Unfair Dismissals
14th August - Discrimination in the Workplace
10th September - Bullying & Harassment at Work
16th October - Employment Law Update
13th November - Managing Sickness Absence
11th December - Reducing the Risk of an Employment Tribunal
15th January 2020 - Managing Performance
Timings for each seminar are 9am-11am on each day and will be held at their modern office space in Cross Keys House in Queen Street. The free seminars are open to all local employers and business owners, but places must be booked in advance. Just head to www.hjshumanresources.co.uk for full details.
Additional details about the topics being covered will be released nearer the time. For notification of updates see their Facebook page or follow the hashtag #ProudToWorkInSalisbury
Managing Director for HJS Human Resources Dan Jenkins said: “I am extremely proud to have built our business in Salisbury – the city has been the home since day one. HJS Human Resources exists to offer growing SMEs access to affordable, qualified HR support and advice. The launch of our free monthly seminars is just another way to getting the advice out there, and helping our neighbours get ahead.
“When businesses are on a journey of growth, their responsibilities as an employer increase significantly, and often business owners aren’t prepared for this. We typically see employers recycling out of date employment contracts, struggling to develop the skills of the team, or trying to manage all the HR related admin by themselves – as well as running the rest of the business!
“We want to educate local businesses on how to be a great employer, and subsequently attract new talent to come work in Salisbury. Let’s get #ProudToWorkInSalisbury trending!”
Robin McGowan, Chief Executive of Salisbury Business Improvement District (BID) said: “It’s great to see HJS supporting Salisbury’s business community by offering these free HR seminars. We encourage all businesses to get involved and attend these valuable talks.”
