June 2018 HR Events

1.DisruptHR London #8

DISRUPT is an information exchange designed to energise, inform and empower executives, business leaders and people in the HR field.

Are you tired of the same old approach to Human Resources? Are you ready to start talking about talent in a whole new way? DisruptHR is for you!


DisruptHR is built on the belief that how we’ve approached people and talent in the past won’t be the best way to approach them in the future. DisruptHR is founded on the idea that ALL business leaders (and that includes you, HR!) need to be ready to take some risks, to stir the pot…in short, to DISRUPT.

Contracts for the Modern Employment Relationship

In association with McDowell Purcell, this employment contracts event will bring you a masterclass on contracts for the modern employment relationship.  In one day, this seminar will:

  • Enable you to stress test your current template so you can identify which clauses in your template contract of employment need to be updated
  • Arm you with “best in class” clauses which you can incorporate into your template contract
  • Identify where standard clauses, including restrictive covenants, need to be brought up to date with the digital world
  • Show you how to build flexibility into your contracts to enable the organisation to adapt and react to a fast-changing global economy

Why is this event important for you?

In a fast-changing global work environment, where employers are faced with ever-increasing demands for flexibility from clients, contractors and employees alike, the effective management of your contracts of employment has never been more important. Failure to build the flexibility and scope into your contracts of employment to enable your business to move with the times, keep pace with competitors and adapt to economic pressures, whilst remaining compliant with employment law, will thwart growth and competitiveness.

After attending, you will receive a plethora of useful contractual clauses that can be used to build flexibility and safeguards into your employment contracts.

You will be able to use those clauses to:

  • lawfully handle contractual variation
  • minimise legal challenges when terminating a contract of employment
  • build flexibility into your employment contracts in accordance with strategic fit
  • safeguard your organisation through the inclusion of lawful and reasonable clauses in the terms and conditions of the employment contract

The event is a must for any organisation either looking to update their contracts of employment in 2018 or looking to introduce organisational change.

Who should attend?
This event is for HR professionals who are responsible for employment law matters or who are involved in developing policies and HR strategy within their organisation.When and where?

HR teams are often being asked to do more, yet with less resource and less budget. What are the new tools and techniques that HR can utilise to increase how they deliver?
