Continued success for Lancashire HR Forum

Forbes Solicitors has signed up to support a Lancashire based employer’s forum for a further year after the continued growth and success of the events.

The Lancashire HR Employer’s Forum has now been supported by Forbes Solicitors for more than five years after they stepped in to save the events which were at risk of falling victim to the spending cuts. Over this period the forums have seen significant growth and are now regularly attended by over 100 local business owners and HR Practitioners.

The forums are co-ordinated by Community and Business Partners and are held every four months to discuss local private sector business issues and share best practice between HR professionals and business owners.

The forum is free to attend and meetings cover issues relevant to HR including employee engagement, legal updates and case studies.

Joanne Pickering, director of HR and training at Forbes Solicitors who chairs the meetings, said: “The Lancashire HR Employer’s Forums have continued to go from strength to strength.

"Attendees continue to tell me how useful they find the Forums and how much they enjoy meeting colleagues from different businesses, learning from one another and sharing practical experiences to assist in the management, development and engagement of their employees.” Jaydee Davis, operations manager at Community and Business Partners, added: “Community & Business Partners are delighted to continue our relationship with Forbes Solicitors, together we have really seen these forums grow and become a main stay in the calendars of many local businesses."
