Your Bond Williams HR Insights magazine


Welcome to our HR Insights magazine.

Every quarter, we bring you industry news, insights and advice from both our in-house team as well as HR professionals and subject matter experts from across Dorset and Hampshire.

Firstly, a Happy New Year to all of you. In our first issue for 2021, we take a look at remote working and how to manage teams effectively with a guest article from Rosemary Darby-Jenkins,  who for over 10 years managed her remote teams around the country with her home base being Bournemouth.

We have an employment law update from Paul Burton of Frettens Solicitors which touches on some of the biggest issues that companies are facing, and an informative article from Stuart Lawrenson and Lauren Piesley of Shoosmiths LLP on 10 key issues employers are going to deal with as they face the next chapter of the virus.

We delve into the importance of HR Budget Planning with a two-part article that has been written for us by Pem Paddick, with over 15 years’ experience working within the corporate and commercial environment as a strategic HR & Finance Director.

Another theme is virtual presenting – guest author Dee Clayton gives us advice and tips on virtual presentations and what needs to be considered when hosting. We also bring you a recruitment market update and the benefits of using temporary staff, why you should evaluate your onboarding process in times of change and much more.

Since initially applying for the role, I cannot say how much I have appreciated Hannah's complete and utter professionalism in assisting me throughout the assignment as she has continued to update me on the process and status of my application whether it be 'positive or negative' reporting - something that in my experience with recruitment companies is absolutely unique - both in the UK and throughout the MENA Region and having been both an 'internal and an external' client and have dealt with numerous similar recruitment organisations with unsatisfactory results!.

As a result of Hannah's work, I must say she is a total credit to Bond Williams and reflects your extremely high standards and I would have no hesitation to recommend her and your Company to any potential clients or applicants in the future.

Thank you Hannah and Bond Williams.
