Helping our clients Fast Forward and following our last Ask the Expert on restructuring, this time we have two experts to help us plan for 2021. Taking on board your requests, this is just one of the topics tipped by you in our Fast Forward calls over the last two weeks.

Once again, join us at 8.30-9am, Tuesday 4th August over coffee for a quick fire round of questions to equip you with everything you need to know about redundancies.

Redundancies - how to avoid the pitfalls and plan the positives

Nick Wilson, Partner at Andrew Jackson Solicitors and Anna Masheter, Managing Director of Beyond Learning will look at both sides of redundancies. Put your questions to our experts as we look at:

  • The importance of the redundancy process and the perils of getting this wrong
  • The short term gain of following the law against the long term risk of ignoring it
  • How to harness the potential of those made redundant to help them secure roles elsewhere
  • How turning disgruntled staff into confident new recruits creates advocates internally and externally
  • How both parties can thrive from redundancies with a plan, process and positive mind

As always, we will be open to questions in advance as well as during the session on any topic related to redundancies.

You are all doing a fantastic job guys and I just want to let you all know we would be in a real panic had it not been for the support and advice you have given us so far. I really don't know if we would have been in business at the end of this. But with your exceptional effort I feel much more confident that we can ride this storm and come out the other end. The decision we made as a business to procure your services has paid massive dividends.

Thank you from all at Dragonfly.

Sarah and the team at Quest have provided us HR support since January 2013.

Quest Consulting Services provided us with a comprehensive employment structure with contacts and a handbook and have been on hand to help me deal with the occasional issue I have faced with team members through their telephone support service.

As our personal Consultant, Sarah provides a quality, professional and complete service which is great value for money.

Sarah has transformed our HR and has introduced systems that have taken lots of hassle away from staffing issues within our company.

We have worked with Sarah and her team for 5 years and in this time our business has grown considerably. With telephone support available for all our Managers as they need it plus Sarah and her team proactively keeping us updated on changes in legislation we are reassured that we are in safe hands.

The HR software that Quest implemented also helps us keep on top of the routine aspects of HR such as holiday bookings, recording absence, holding personnel records which then allows Sarah and her team easy access to give us relevant advice.

Our Managers have also benefited from workshops run by Sarah to help develop their skills on handling issues such as disciplinary, appraisals, recruitment etc….

The support of Quest is invaluable and provides a much more cost effective solution than employing a HR Manager in house.
