Join us as we launch our brand-new 'recovery programme' virtual events which support businesses to restart, rebuild and renew.

Our ‘Keeping the R(edundancy) number down’ webinar is aimed at providing employers with further information on what support is available after the end of the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS), and considering alternatives to redundancies.    

With latest figures suggesting that almost 700,000 employees have been removed from company payrolls since the pandemic began, this webinar seeks to provide businesses with alternative options to redundancies – to preserve the workforce as best as possible, whilst keeping the business sustainable. At a time when many employers feel like redundancies are the only option, this webinar aims to take a more pro-active approach to weather the storm.
