Webinar with Ward Hadaway: What the UK General Election Result Means for your Business

Posted July 8, 2024

So the results are in and we know who holds the keys to Number 10 for the next five years.  But what does this mean in practice for your business and its people? Are we on the brink of revolutionary change, or can we expect the status quo to remain largely unchallenged?

On Thursday 18th July at 9am, our Regional Director for the North Daniel Simmonite and Vicky Weir, Senior Consultant in Sanderson’s Manchester office, are pleased to be partnering with Ward Hadaway and their employment partners Caroline Shafar and Laura Darnley to deliver a webinar discussing the key HR changes businesses can expect to see in the first 100 days of the new Labour government, along with practical tips for businesses to navigate this period of change.

This special election webinar will talk you through the expected impact of a Labour Government on your organisation and will leave you with food for thought in relation to your people strategy.

In particular, we’ll be looking in detail at the policy objectives outlined in the Labour manifesto and New Deal paper including:

  • What will be the impact of day one rights for workers?
  • Will day 1 protection from unfair dismissal change commercial and HR practices?
  • How are zero hours contracts likely to change? Will your business need to change its operating models as a result?
  • How will the abolition of the three tier system for employment status impact in practical terms?
  • What can we expect from an increasingly empowered trade union movement?
  • What are fair pay agreements – and how will they impact on business?
  • What does a new Government mean for the skills gap and recruitment?
  • Can we expect significant changes to the immigration requirements associated with recruiting non-UK workers?

You will be able to ask your own questions either in advance via the registration form, or you can use the Q&A feature in Zoom on the day.

We hope you will be able to join us!
