HR & Employment Law Training for business owners, line managers, and HR professionals

We make business sense

So, stop wasting your effort continuously firefighting people problems, and free up your time and energy so it can be put to better use developing your business. Equip your managers to effectively deal with staff issues before they become a major incident. Become confident that they can keep your workforce operating smoothly on a day-to-day basis, without requiring your constant personal involvement. Move to a people strategy based on planning what you want to achieve in the future, rather than just reacting to what has already occurred.

We can meet your HR & employment law training needs

In addition to the public open courses that we regularly run covering popular HR and employment law topics, we can also design and deliver private bespoke courses tailored to the specific needs of your business. We can deliver these either at your site or ours, schedule them out of hours to minimise workplace disruption, and offer discounts based on number of delegates and sessions required. To supplement the HR & employment law training that we ourselves provide, we also have a network of trusted training partners who can deliver courses in a number of related areas. So, whether you have a single person who needs to develop in-depth knowledge of a particular topic, or a whole team that needs to gain more general skills, we're confident that we can provide what you need.

We can support you practically

And to help give you the confidence to put what you've learned into practice, all of our courses include a free HR document template pack, and optional access to a post-training HR support hotline provided by Loates HR Consultancy.

We provide both quality & value

We're so confident about the quality of our courses, and the business value they provide, that we offer a no-quibble money-back guarantee. If you don't think the training was worth it, we'll give you your money back. No fuss, no debates, no arguments. Just ask. Simple as that.

All the staff involved gave glowing accounts

During post-recession business expansion it was felt that senior managers would benefit from some training in leadership, time management, personal impact and self-awareness skills. Using Sarah’s HR experience and training abilities it was possible to combine this with a search for potential future directors. All the staff involved gave glowing accounts of the way Sarah has improved their management capabilities. Even the HR training doubters were won around! Output from the staff exercises and insights from Sarah have been combined with staff performance appraisals to identify directorial talent. We will not hesitate to use Sarah’s services again when we need them.

Sarah helped our senior staff with management and HR training. All feedback from staff was positive and I’m sure it wasn’t just because of the chocolate rewards used in some of the exercises! Her training and insight has aided us in targeting potential future Directors of the company and empowered other staff in their management roles.

Thanks Sarah!

Enscite asked Sarah to run a workshop on important HR policies required for Small Businesses so that our clients are better equipped to understand some of the HR requirements in relation to this. The session was really well run and both engaging and informative so that our clients went away with better knowledge and having enjoyed their learning experience.
Great job Sarah!

High Quality Professional Training

I attended the Mental Health First Aid course held by Loates HR Training last week, I was impressed by the quality of training Amanda delivered, the course content was excellent and the reference material we took away was of a very high standard.

The venue was perfect the room was well ventilated and roomy and all the IT worked first time! Result!

I would also like to mention Loates’ team – they welcomed us and kept us well fed and watered throughout the course, they were professional courteous and delightful.

i would have no issue recommending this excellent HR consultancy for any training needs

Fantastic!

I had a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere when I attended the mental health first aid course. The lunch was wonderful and tea and coffee was always available. I would recommend Loates HR Training every time for your training needs.

A great training session

I just wanted to say thank you to Sarah and Annie for a great training session yesterday for Timms Solicitors partners, associates and the management team. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and the energy in the room was brilliant. I have learnt a great deal about my team and they have learnt about themselves and how to manage their behaviour in the office and gain respect from the staff. I must say I was very proud of the way they all engaged and the contributions they made. Thank you so much for bringing out the best in us.

Excellent Course

Loates HR Training have fantastic offices in Darley Abbey Mills, which were perfect for holding the training course.

The course instructor Amanda, was very knowledgeable and delivered the 2 day course well. The course itself was informative, it helped increase awareness of mental health, the importance of having positive mental health, and the difficulties people can experience when they have poor mental health.

Having completed the course, I’m now better equipped to spot poor mental health and know how best to approach and support this in the workplace.

The MHFA Two Day course is superb

The MHFA Two Day course is superb. Loates trainer Amanda delivered the course in a relaxed and enjoyable manner, engaging everybody and making difficult subjects very easy to discuss and learn about. The practical exercises were actually fun but with a serious point, the Hearing Voices one really brought home to me how some people suffer. The course covers depression and anxiety, suicide, psychosis and gives you a framework to use to help people. The course book is huge, well produced and contains more detailed information than you need for the course, you take it away and dip in it at your leisure. Loates training rooms allowed for small group work and large discussions with large screen and good sound.

This course opened my eyes to what people go through, and that many people are affected. Everyone was open which added to the learning atmosphere. I recommend this course to everyone, all levels and all roles. The more we talk, the stronger we all are.

Putting the Fun in Fundamentals

Brilliant workshop learning about various Human Resources policies and the importance of having them, even in small businesses. It was very interesting from start to finish and educational without being boring. Would highly recommend this workshop.

Informative and very useful

The training was a mixture of learning material, case studies and example activities.
I found this course very helpful for my day to day duties within my role, it gave me a better understanding of how to approach and deal with any such issues which may arise in the workplace and has given me the confidence to handle them efficiently.
Sarah Loates (the course trainer) gave us as a group opportunity to ask questions, share experiences and gave sound advice on the course topic.
I would certainly recommend Loates HR Training to others.
Thank you
