Newcastle HR professionals make employment law a priority

Last week, human resources professionals from Newcastle met to discuss ways to attract and retain talented employees. Hays Human Resources, the leading recruiting expert, hosted the forum on the 18th March 2010 at the Hays Mosley Street office. Speaker Paula Duncan, who is a Chartered Psychologist, discussed how recruitment and onboarding policies can affect employee retention and productivity.

Maureen Sullivan, Director at Hays Human Resources, comments: "It is great that we could provide a forum for local HR professionals to discuss topical issues and concerns. Attendees learnt how smart onboarding practices can play a huge part in keeping hold of an organisation's new talent and were able to tap into the expertise on offer."

Paula Duncan, Chartered Psychologist, comments: "In a candidate rich recruitment market where motivation to apply for roles is very different to that in less turbulent times it is important to consider how you recruit, embed and then keep the right people in your organisation. The seminar gave us an opportunity to share our experiences and insights with our Newcastle colleagues."
