Employment and HR Training Academy – new service launched by Boyes Turner
30 January 2017

The Thames Valley’s leading law firm, Boyes Turner has launched a new Employment and HR Training Academy

The Academy provides training for HR practitioners and business professionals as well as senior leadership teams across a broad range of people related areas and issues including performance management, equality and diversity, conflict management as well as leadership and employee engagement. New training and awareness updates on the gender pay gap, millennial leadership and modern slavery are also available.

All of the courses are delivered by experienced lawyers and qualified HR specialists. The Academy provides off-the-shelf, tailored and bespoke training courses, run flexibly at client’s offices as well as through webinars and elearning.

Emma O’Connor, Head of Boyes Turner’s Training-Employment Group, explains:

“Whilst we have always provided training services, The Academy allows us to focus more specifically on the essential training that businesses need to be agile and compete successfully. Whilst many organisations focus on product or service development, ensuring that organisations get the most from their people is often not a priority. Our aim is to change this and place training and development at the top of the agenda where it belongs. We also understand that some organisations may have a training need without requiring legal advice. Our services are flexible, accessible and above all on message. We work with organisations to deliver people training which works for them and their priorities. Training is important. Training does work.”
