Since bringing into the advo group the Sagegreen HR employees and HR Franchise businesses last year this has allowed a considerable expansion of both local reach and HR expertise. We put this new expertise and experience to good use in an article that looks ahead to 2021 and predicts some of the HR ‘highs and lows’ for the year ahead.

We also include an article which summarises the current rules and restrictions for businesses in lockdown. In addition, there is useful guidance on managing people, including where there may be conflict between employees and the business due to the pandemic and how to manage the increasingly blurred work and home lives of employees working remotely.

We also include an interesting article looking at HR challenges from the often-forgotten HR and business owner’s perspective.

There is also an article on managing staff holidays, a real lockdown knock-on challenge for businesses.

Focussing in on recruitment issues, we include an article on the promotion of employee benefits and how these valuable recruitment tools are often forgotten in the hiring process. We also focus on the value of an employee assistance programme.

In advo news we update you on what’s new with us, including our new people and people moving to new roles within the group. We also highlight the expanded services and support offered by the advo hr team. In our annual ‘Oscars’ we recognise advo’s ‘best of the best’ by highlighting our advo staff award winners.
