Firms offered free workshops to make their business better

Free workshops are being staged jointly by Invest East Yorkshire and Invest Hull over the coming weeks to help business owners get better results from the recruitment process, improve their job adverts, tackle difficult conversations with employees that are under performing and manage staff absence.

Taking place online and at a number of venues across East Yorkshire and Hull, the workshops have been developed to enable time-poor small business owners to maximise their efficiency and effectiveness when managing people, ensuring that they’re better positioned for growth and success and don’t leave themselves at risk because they’ve not got appropriate policies and procedures in place. The dates and venues are as follows:

Managing Performance workshops

  • Wednesday 24 April: Online from 9.30am to 11.30am.
  • Tuesday 21 May: At the Louis Pearlman Centre at 94 Goulton Street in Hull (HU3 4DL) from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
  • Thursday 4 July: Online from 10am to 12 noon.

Managing Absence workshops

  • Wednesday 8 May: At Bridlington Business Centre from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
  • Thursday 27 June: Online from 10am to 12 noon.
  • Wednesday 17 July: At ERGO, Bridgehead Business Park, Meadow Road, Hessle (HU13 0GD) from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

Recruit With Confidence workshops

  • Thursday 16 May: Online from 9am to 11am.
  • Thursday 13 June: At Sewell Group, Craven Park, Poorhouse Lane, Hull (HU9 5HE) from 9.30am to 12.30pm.

The workshops will be led by Helen Hudson, a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of
Personnel and Development (CIPD) and an experienced Human Resources Consultant at Dynamic People Solutions. She will be supported by Alison Davies of ADD HR Solutions Ltd.

Helen, who has more than 25 years of experience in human resources, including working with global, FTSE 100 (Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 Index), companies, said: “We know that human resources and dealing with people challenges can often fall to the bottom of the to-do list for time-poor small business owners. It’s just one of many different roles that they have to fulfil. However, it’s well worth devoting time to making sure you fully understand what’s required of you and have appropriate and effective policies and procedures in place. Dealing with people issues in the right way will help protect you and your business, legally and reputationally.

“These free workshops are a great opportunity to boost your knowledge, and pick up some useful tips and insights. Don’t miss this chance to transform your approach to human resource management; register now for these empowering workshops and take a confident step towards success!”
