24th November 2016 – The Changing Workforce – Brockholes, Preston

The event will focus on The Changing Workforce.

Event Details

The Changing Workforce.

Join us at our next HR Exchange event on Thursday 24 November at our usual venue – Brockholes Nature Reserve, Preston.

The workforce is changing!

It is estimated that 3.5 million people will retire between 2016 and 2020.  This year will see generation Y taking on managerial roles and generation Z will be entering employment.

Our guest speaker Lisa Ellis, Senior Adviser at ACASNorth West will guide you through what this will mean for jobs and work. She will also review the unique behaviours and requirements of todays multi-generational workforce and how they are transforming the world of work with their values and motivations.

Peter Byrne, Employment Partner at Taylors, will then look at some of the common legal issues faced by employers of multi-generational staff.

Employees today know their rights and entitlements and therefore so must the businesses which employ them.  Businesses also need to protect themselves from the employment law risks which go with modern ways of working. The topics to be covered include:

  • getting the right person for the job
  • flexible working including phased retirement
  • protecting your business and its confidential information.

Peter will then end the session with our usual Employment Law update.

It’s sure to be another fantastic event for HR professionals, senior managers and business owners and we look forward to seeing you there.

Our September event was completely sold out, so make sure you reserve your place for our November event by booking online now.

We look forward to seeing you on 24th November

By Bus
Brockholes is about caring for the natural world and for the environment.  One way of protecting that environment is to reduce your carbon footprint so why not come to Brockholes by frequent local bus and on foot, enjoying an easy, level walk along the Ribble of less than a mile – about 20 minutes – to the reserve entrance.

If you are coming from Preston Bus Station catch either Stagecoach-in-Lancashire bus 59 or Transdev Lancashire United  Ribble Valley Express service X80/280 and alight at the Tickled Trout Motel, just before the M6 junction.

In the other direction Bus 59 provides a direct service from Blackburn or Accrington (half hourly weekdays, hourly Sundays) whilst the Lancashire United Ribble Valley Express X80/280 serves Skipton, Barnoldswick, Clitheroe and Whalley, (connections from Burnley). hourly on weekdays, two hourly on Sundays.  For downloadable X80/280 timetables log onto www.lancashirebus.co.uk.

If you are coming from Preston, alight at the bus stop at the Tickled Trout and walk back over the river bridge, taking the first track on the right by a metal crash barrier fence. Walk 50 metres along the track, before going through the metal kissing gate on the right which leads onto the cycle track, now the Guild Wheel Cycle Way.

If coming from the Blackburn or Clitheroe direction, alight at the first bus stop past the M6 which is the Tickled Trout. Either cross the A59 carefully at the refuge, turning left to cross the river bridge to the track on the right, or cross the river bridge to locate steps leading to an underpass, left, under the A59 which joins the cycle path as below.

Follow this level tarmac track which soon goes alongside the river and under the concrete arches of the slip roads, motorway and along the vehicle access road to the main entrance to the reserve.  You can follow this drive to the Visitor Centre, but a metal kissing gate on the left 20 metres before the entrance gives access to a traffic free walking route parallel to the drive which lead to the Centre.
