HR News Room – February 2022

What’s The Great Resignation all about?

It’s a movement being fuelled by UK job vacancies hitting a record high of 1.2 million and UK workers leaving their jobs at the highest rate since 2009.

Recently, I was part of a panel discussion about The Great Resignation.  A recording of the discussion is available here so you can find out more about my views and what the other panel members had to say about it.

So you survived January!

You might have decided to prioritise your fitness and wellbeing for the year ahead. Maybe you’ve even dusted off your gym membership card!!!!

But when did you last check that your business is HR fit?  We’re here to help by offering a COMPLIMENTARY HR Fit Assessment.  It covers the key areas of HR compliance across your business.

We’ll make sure you know what you’re doing great and the areas that need attention.  We’ll also suggest actions to consider taking and what best HR practice looks like.

You’ve got a few weeks left to be friendly to others and give your relationships a boost.

Our Chief Happiness Officer is all for working flexibly, but often takes it to extremes when trying out his latest contortionist moves.

But we also found out that working flexibly is one of the main reasons people have chosen to run their own business.
