HR Forum continues to grow with Forbes’ support

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

The Lancashire HR Employer’s Forum has seen significant growth since Forbes started to support the forums in 2011 and is 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: “Over the last two years, the Lancashire HR Employer Forums have gone from strength to strength, with a record attendance at the last event in March. Colleagues continue to tell me how useful they find the Forums and how much they enjoy meeting colleagues from a similar background and sharing experiences and helping one another.” Amin Vepari, 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”.
