In the second episode of Loch Lowdown, Pam Loch and Joe Milner discuss everything that you need to consider when starting up a new business. There are thousands of things to do, new skills to learn and generally speaking, not enough hours in the day. If you’re thinking about starting your own company, or are in the early stages of setting up a business, this is likely to be the time when specialist advice is most essential.

Episode 4:

In this podcast episode, Sally Bedeau and Roisin Kavanagh discuss why Diversity and Inclusion are essential to the success of a business, beyond policies and programs. You can find out more about how to assess how good diversity and inclusion is in your workplace, the benefits of doing that, and what actions employers can take to deliver on this in recruitment, behaviour and values.

In the fifth episode of Loch Lowdown, we’re giving an in-depth look at the valuable HR Medical Specialist services we offer.

Part of Loch Associate Group’s unique Proactive Absence Management system (PAM™) , Bruce will also be talking about the importance of refresher first aid training for staff, returning to the office post Covid, as well as the specialist dental and doctor services on offer from the Group.

Episode 6:

In the sixth podcast episode of Loch Lowdown, we’re discussing why redundancy may not be the best solution when it comes to easing financial burdens for employers.

With the increasing number of redundancies during the covid-19, Alex covers the direct and hidden costs involved, as well as providing alternative solutions which could be more effective than redundancy. Roisin provides an overview of the valuable support that Loch Employment Law can offer with redundancies from strategic input to guiding clients through the process with scripts and letters to use to minimise the risks and costs from a badly handled exit.
