Following our successful Jelf Employment Seminars in other areas of the UK, we are pleased to announce the first such event in the South West.
The last few years have presented changes and challenges to all aspects of the world of employment. Given this, we thought a title of ‘Life Goes On’ for this event would be appropriate! To support this theme, our superb venue is Bristol Zoo Gardens. Centrally located, the venue is easily accessible by bus, train and car. The venue, which celebrates its 175th Birthday in July, has more than 450 species on display, and is worth a visit in any weather as there are no fewer than nine animal houses under cover. Delegates can access the zoo free of charge after the event.
Date: Friday, 24th June 2011
Timing: 09:00 to 12:00
Location: Clifton Suite and Lecture Theatre, Bristol Zoo, Bristol BS8 3HA
Suitable for: Senior Human Resources and Finance Professionals
CPD: The seminar will qualify for 2 hours CPD
Delegate cost: FREE
All delegates will have free access to Bristol Zoo Gardens (usual entry price £14) after the event. Morning refreshments and lunchtime drinks are provided free of charge.
09:00 Registration, coffee, and networking
09:45 Employee Wellbeing: ‘Addiction of the species’
Addiction to drugs or alcohol in your employees can be difficult to spot, and potentially damaging to the individual’s wellbeing, team morale, and the productivity of your organisation.
To help you spot the signs, and provide some plain speaking guidance and actions, we are delighted to welcome Edmund Tirbutt to our seminar programme. Edmund is the bestselling author of ‘Beat the Booze’, a multi-award winning national journalist, and a former stand-up comic. Given his background and expertise, he has been building a reputation as a highly entertaining speaker on this important topic.
Speaker: Edmund Tirbutt, Author of ‘Beat the Booze’
10:30 Break, refreshments and networking
11:00 Employment Law: ‘Evolution’
For many, employment law is a static subject, only reviewed in moments of crisis. However, organisations should regularly review proposed changes in employment legislation so they can adjust their policies and procedures well in advance.
This session will focus on forthcoming changes to employment legislation such as the Bribery Act, employment tribunal reform and the impact of the removal of the default retirement age. An informative and necessary session for delegates.
Speaker: Matt Jenkin, Morgan Cole LLP
11:30 Employee Benefits: ‘Natural Selection: Adapt to survive’
After years of preparation and talk, changes in employee benefits have finally arrived. The National Employment Savings Trust is now a reality, and the Pensions Bill is passing through parliament. Many other UK and European edicts will have an impact on the future Employee Benefits landscape. What do the proposed changes mean for you, what action should you be taking and when?
Steve will guide delegate through this increasingly complex area with his unusual, but instructive, approach to the issues of the day.
Speaker: Steve Herbert, Jelf Employee Benefits
12:00 Closing comments, Seminar concludes
