The theme of this month’s workshop is to provide an overview of the key issues to consider when employing people within your business.

- Employee/ employer relationship
- Principles of an employment contract
- Policies and procedures in the workplace
Ruth and Jan established the HR Solutions Partnership in May 2007 to provide HR expertise to companies without their own HR department or who simply want to supplement their own internal HR support with consultancy advice, and /or managers who require support to help them navigate through the legalities of employing and managing people. However, their reputation in the market place has taken them beyond the small business sector, working with a wide variety of businesses across the UK and internationally.
Since then they have been involved in a variety of HR activities, ranging from the design of strategic HR initiatives for top Fortune 500 companies, bespoke training and development workshops, to the provision of day to day advice and guidance for small businesses.
Come along at 10am for coffee and join in the practical and interactive session on the theme of the month then stay and work with the MMU business support team on your business idea.
