Emma O'Connor,
What employment training you missed last week...
22 May 2018

“One of the most useful sessions I have ever attended”, “Very interesting to mix with other like minded people”, “Very applicable to HR professionals” – these are just some of the quotes from the delegates who attended our Employment Conference last week – the Future of Work: Diversity and Inclusivity in the 21st Century. 

“Really insightful still from 9.30am-2.30pm!”

Last week we held the first of our 2018 Employment Conferences focusing on the Future of Work: Diversity and Inclusivity in the 21 Century.

Myself and my colleague Claire Taylor-Evans presented legal updates to a packed audience of HR professionals on sexual harassment in the workplace and the gender pay gap and discussed how these topical issues impact on the future of work.

We shared with delegates our views on how gender equality issues can affect employee engagement and focused on how to be a “destination employer”. We were also thrilled to be joined by barrister Robin White of Old Square Chambers and Jaan Madan of Mental Health First Aid England as our key note speakers. Thank you to all who came and for all of their contributions.
