Lancashire business professionals lend their support to helping businesses manage stress in the workplace at the third HR Exchange.

Chairman of Rossendales, Julie Green Jones and Tony Almond of the Health and Safety Executive filled the guest speaking slots at the Taylors led HR event.

Now into its third meeting The HR Exchange has advised over 100 Lancashire directors, managers and business owners with the latest HR and employment law topics as well as providing a dedicated network in which to share best practice and exchange information.

In response to demand, attendees including the Eric Wright Group and Daisy Communications were advised on managing stress in the workplace.

Oliver McCann, Partner and Head of Employment Law at Taylors said: “The recent economy and press coverage regarding redundancies and unemployment in our area has lent itself to potentially providing extra pressure for employees incredibly aware about the importance of their job – making this a key issue for us to tackle.

Tony Almond kick-started the event presenting on tackling work related stress with Julie Green Jones following up on the importance of promoting a healthy workforce.

Emma Morris of Rowanmoor pensions said of the event: “This was a fantastic session the best one so far I particularly liked the enthusiastic presentations.”

Oliver ran through the legal issues relevant to stress at work as well as an Employment Law Update.

Oliver added: “Helping business leaders and HR professionals on ways to manage workplace stress, means we are equipping our region with the knowledge to create reliable and sturdy workforces, which can only aid our own economy.”

Sandra Cadman of the Eric Wright Group Ltd said: “This event had an excellent mix of speakers with good opportunities to link with other HR professionals in wide variety of industries to share best practice."

Taylors Solicitors, the county’s only dedicated commercial law firm, in association with its corporate partners, AFR Consulting, Laura Hartley Recruitment and Oswaldtwistle Mills Business and Conference Centre set up The HR Exchange to hold quarterly events throughout the year with the aim of building a network of individuals involved in HR and personnel issues.
