Aaron & Partners Invites Yorkshire Industrial Firms To Free HR Seminar

29th April, 2013

Aaron & Partners LLP is inviting industrial firms across Yorkshire to get up to speed with the latest developments in employment law and HR by attending a specialist seminar in Leeds on Friday 17th May from 12.00 – 4.00pm at the Radisson Blu Hotel Leeds, The Light, The Headrow.

The free event is being hosted by industrial recruitment specialist gap personnel in partnership with Aaron & Partners.  Partner & head of employment at Aaron & Partners, Helen Watson, is guest speaker at the event and will give an overview of the hot topics in human resources, including:

  • Pensions auto-enrolment legislation
  • Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) 18 months on
  • Protected conversations, settlement agreements and other topical legislative changes

Helen will also discuss recent employment tribunal cases, and there will be the opportunity to ask questions.

The event begins at 12.00 with a two-course buffet lunch, allowing attendees to network with other business leaders from across the region.

gap personnel, one of the UK’s 10 largest industrial labour providers, places and payrolls 7,000 workers a week and last year provided staffing solutions to 1,200 clients.

Within Yorkshire, the company has high-street branches in Leeds, Sheffield and Castleford and a network of on-site operations at large manufacturing firms.

gap supplies temporary workers to some of Yorkshire’s biggest manufacturing, food production, packaging, recycling and waste management firms.

The company’s specialist driving division, Driving Force, has a hub in Wakefield and works with haulage and logistics firms.

Sheffield resident Matthew Hull, operations director (east UK) at gap personnel, said: “This seminar is aimed at business owners, HR directors, HR managers, and anyone who is involved in managing a workforce.

“Employment law is a fast moving area, and there is always a new piece of legislation just around the corner.

“Even the most diligent managing director or HR professional can sometimes struggle to stay up to date with legislative changes and landmark tribunal cases.

“This seminar will offer delegates a concise overview of the current employment law landscape, and also give them an opportunity to meet up with like-minded professionals.”

There is no charge for the event, but early booking is recommended as places are limited.

To reserve your place call Paul Illingworth, manager of gap’s Leeds branch, on 0113 204 8585 or email [email protected] with your name, company details and a contact telephone number.
