Watershed HR events
We host seminars, talks and annual events where our experts bring stakeholders together for meaningful discussion and expert collaboration.
We also hold regular private dinners for our clients at the RAC in London. Our private dinners are an opportunity for our clients to meet in a relaxed environment and exchange key industry insights as well as network, listen to speakers and share expert knowledge.
Employment law status and the gig economy - London and Manchester - 5th and 7th March
Our 2018 seminars in Manchester and London were a great success and we are happy to announce a new seminar which focuses on employment law status and the gig economy on the 5th March in London and 7th March in Manchester.
Understanding the status of your staff and whether an individual is self-employed, a worker or an employee is crucial because it determines the extent of your legal obligations. In this seminar, our team of experienced employment lawyers will take you through some of the most complex issues in 2019.
Our seminars in 2019
Each seminar is purposely designed to give HR experts up-to-date information on the latest employment law trends and HR practices. After the positive response we received from attendees at our 'Managing mental health in the workplace' seminar in December 2018, we decided to launch a series of insightful and topical HR seminars throughout 2019 in both London and Manchester.
Our seminar topics and dates are:
- Restrictive covenants – Tuesday 14th (Manchester) and Wednesday 15th May (London)
- Redundancy rights – Tuesday 15th (Manchester) and Wednesday 16th October (London)
- Gender and ethnicity pay – Tuesday 12th (London) and Wednesday 13th November (Manchester)
- Equality and diversity at work, bullying and harassment – Tuesday 3rd (London) and Wednesday 4th December (Manchester)
Our private dining events in 2019
The first of our private dining events will be hosted by Andrew Stephenson, the Group People Director of Lookers plc, at the RAC in Central London in the evening of 12th March 2019. These exclusive, invitation only events are designed to bring together senior HR practitioners to share experiences and insights in an informal, relaxed atmosphere.
Before leading the people, customer experience and IT functions at Lookers, Andrew was the Group HR and Property Director at DFS Furniture. His work on customer experience within DFS was not only a major part of the investment story at IPO but has also been the focus of doctoral level academic work. A paper was published on the link between customer experience and company performance, which was awarded the 2018 best full conference paper by the British Academy of Management.
