Wednesday 18 September

Lunch and Learn session

Unconscious bias – is the corporate playing field as level as you thought?

Unconscious bias is nothing new but the drive to improve awareness is certainly on the up. This event will concentrate on shifting unconscious bias into conscious thought, promoting more balanced decision making.

We are working with RoleplayUK and their skills coaches using forum theatre techniques to  play out scenes involving unconscious bias in the workplace, some exaggerated for clear demonstration and others more subtle to test wider levels of awareness.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to demonstrate how this highly effective technique works in practice, and hopefully open debate of how we can widen the impact of this important message.

 

Thursday 26 September

HR: Connect Over Coffee with Belinda Coaten, Coach and Trainer for Mindfulness At Work

There are many reasons why Mindfulness is so popular today.  Primarily it provides personal development at a deep level and in addition can:

  • change behaviour,
  • lead to culture change,
  • be an essential leadership competency,
  • reduce your remedial spend, (private health care, employee assistance programmes, absence management, occupational health),
  • build resilience levels,
  • provide a strategic lever within an organisation to facilitate better decision making,
  • create focus,
  • clarity,
  • improve mental health,
  • and finally boost productivity and creativity.

This session is ideal for business owners and line managers. Nel Woolcott, Recruitment Partner at Anne Corder Recruitment will also be attending this event. If you are interested in attending this session, please visit the official Eventbrite website.

Tuesday 1 October  

SAVE THE DATE: The Annual Hegarty Solicitors and Anne Corder Recruitment Employment Law Seminar 

Our hugely popular breakfast seminar, hosted in partnership with Hegarty Solicitors, is back. Promising to cover some big topics in employment law, the event will welcome keynote talks from the experts at Hegarty Solicitors, along with an industry update from Anne Corder.  

To register your interest in finding out more, please email info@annecorder.co.uk  

Topics:

  • Persistent Short-Term Absence – Martin Bloom
    The cost of workplace absence to businesses continues to rise. Last year it is estimated that the cost for employers was over £18 billion. Most employers will tolerate a certain amount of absence, but persistent periods can become damaging. Martin Bloom will consider the legal issues arising when dealing with such problems.
  • Protecting an Employer’s Reputation – Tim Thompson
    Employers understandably are protective of their reputation. In his talk, Tim Thompson will look at decisions taken by the courts in this area. He will highlight some specific areas including social media, data protection and criminal wrong-doing.
  • Case Law – Martin Bloom
    Martin will discuss some of the most important employment law cases decided over the last 12 months and the implications they may have on all businesses. A must have update for HR professionals and managers!

This event is free to attend for clients of Anne Corder Recruitment or Hegarty Solicitors, places are limited.
