The second annual Insight HR Conference took place at the Rodbaston Hall in Staffordshire on Thursday 2nd March. Free to all customers of Insight HR this event was attended by 68 delegates from our Schools and Academies plus 5 colleagues from the Teaching Unions.
Lynsey Evans (Director/Senior HR Consultant) started the day with a recap of Insight HR’s growth and achievements over the past 12 months and a massive thankyou to our customers. Karen Groom (Director/Senior HR Consultant) went on to give a valuable update on recent and future employment law changes including some interesting tribunal decisions. Abigail Brough(Director/Senior HR Consultant) provided a very informative session on some common HR myths which provided an opportunity for a lot of discussion. The sessions then focused on flexible working requests which Karen Groom guided delegates through the stages of the process followed by Lynsey Evans who then delivered a short presentation on time off requests.
After lunch Juliet Shaw and Michala Black talked delegates through our exciting new masterclasses which we will be offering in the summer term. Michala led delegates in a short well-being exercise which was very well received and generated further interest.
Lynsey Evans spoke next and gave delegates an overview of managing misconduct in the workplace. Lynsey was able to share with delegates some real life examples of cases she had dealt with in addition to some thought provoking employment tribunal decisions in this area.
Laura Fidgett (Director/Senior HR Consultant) rounded off the day with further thanks and details of our future plans before inviting delegates to remain for an open HR surgery. All in all, the day was a great success 92% of delegates rated the annual update overall as ‘excellent’ with the remainder rating it as ‘good’.
During the event we handed out supporting documents on the key topics and these can be found on the members only section of our website.
A huge thankyou again to all the delegates for your contribution and feedback on our second annual event.
