HR Practice Event

28/10/2008

Alium’s HR Practice hosted another very successful seminar on 28 October at the London Capital Club.

Alium’s HR Practice hosted another very successful seminar on 28 October at the London Capital Club. Trevor Gibson from Wragge & Co’s employment practice facilitated a highly interactive session on diversity and equal opportunities, from the business and Corporate Social Responsibility angle as well as the legal. As usual, the event was over-subscribed and we were sorry not to be able to accommodate more delegates, but the feedback from the 40 interim HR executives who were able to secure a place, was very positive.

Trevor started the presentation with a small exercise to demonstrate the power of word association which, while an amusing icebreaker, proved the ease with which individuals can unintentionally discriminate. He followed with – in his words – ‘a whistle-stop tour’ through the legislation and its sociocultural context before offering the five groups a case study to explore. Each group was facilitated by an employment lawyer from Wragge & Co. Although we were time-limited, the case study did offer a brief opportunity to apply some of the tips and hints from Trevor’s presentation. It was great to share knowledge and experience of some tricky ER and discriminatory issues from a live case study and then to hear the tribunal rulings from Trevor.

The evening ended after about an hour’s informal networking which is always a great opportunity for Kate, Chloe and Jessica to catch up with as many of our interim HR network as possible.

Attendance at Alium’s HR Practice events is by invitation only to our known network of interim HR professionals. However, if you would like to receive more information about these events, please contact us on [email protected]
