Our annual update events were held in Manchester and London at the start of June and once again were a great success. Thank you to all those who attended.
Providing fixed-fee HR and employment law advice
Findel plc is a long-standing Watershed client. Its subsidiary, Findel Education, which supplies educational resources to schools, regularly uses our services for support on managing people. It employs approximately 400 people across a number of sites.
Watershed provides Findel Education with advice on day-to-day employment matters including requests for flexible working, grievance proceedings, tribunal claims and management of agency workers in the company's warehouses.
We have also supported a number of stand-alone HR assignments including designing and running assessment centres and reviewing organisation structures.
Gary McDowell, Findel Education's Director of Organisational Development and People, says:
"Watershed's ability to quickly assimilate our requirements and, more importantly, adapt quickly to changing circumstances and complexity of the business is always seamless. The Employment Law consultants take time to work things through and their explanations are clear throughout, with supporting notes and guidance in both verbal and written form.
I feel as a Director, confident about the advice and its level of robustness if scrutinised. This has enabled both me and the team to focus on the ever-demanding broader people agenda"
