Red Kite Law Employment and HR Workshops

11 September 2014

Why attend?

We are holding a series of how to…..workshops in Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire. The workshops are interactive, practical courses that provide line managers with the essential knowledge required to deal with day to day Employment and HR issues.

We will provide a comprehensive introduction to the law and best practice to enable line managers to deal with any issues and conduct procedures appropriately and to equip staff with the confidence needed to handle any HR matters.

Why Red Kite?

Our courses are the only courses run in West Wales by specialist Employment Solicitors. We have been described by the Legal 500 as the “strongest employment team in West Wales”. We are also the only law firm in West Wales that is authorised to provide external CPD training through the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Locations

We understand the commitment businesses make allowing their managers time off to attend training. All of our sessions are run in the morning to minimise disruption to your business. We also run each workshop in three locations (Bridge Innovation Centre, Pembroke Dock; Red Kite Law, Carmarthen; and Parc Y Scarlets, Llanelli) to reduce travelling time.

Benefits of attending

The workshops include case studies designed to test delegate knowledge and stimulate discussion. We also encourage question and answer sessions. Delegates will receive a comprehensive handout containing workshop slides, step by step guidance, flowcharts and checklists.

What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.
