Forbes Solicitors has stepped in to support a Lancashire based employer's forum which was at risk of falling victim to the spending cuts.
The Lancashire HR Employer's Forum is co-ordinated by Community and Business Partners and meets every four months to discuss local private sector business issues and share best practice between HR professionals and business owners.
The forum is free to attend and regularly attracts over 50 businesses with meetings covering issues relevant to HR including employee engagement, legal updates and case studies.
Joanne Pickering, Head of HR and Training at Forbes Solicitors who chairs the meetings comments, "I am delighted that with the support of Forbes the Employer's Forum will be continuing as I know that attendees find the meetings invaluable. It is always useful to speak to those in the same industry who are facing similar issues."
Jane Houghton-Fenning, Business Development Director at Community and Business Partners, the organisation behind the forum, comments, "We are very pleased to have the support of Forbes Solicitors to ensure this essential and effective forum continues supporting HR professionals and business owners throughout Lancashire."
