LoatesTraining's HR & employment law courses are designed and delivered by Sarah Loates, founder of 5-star rated HR consultancy LoatesHR, and a practising senior HR consultant with over 20 years of experience across a wide range of company types and industry sectors. Sarah's considerable personal hands-on HR expertise allows her to adopt a practical and business-focussed approach within her training. As a result, she is able to bring theory to life with numerous interesting real-world examples, and show you the best ways to effectively deal with the types of tricky HR and employment law issues that you're actually likely to face in practice. And since Sarah is a current CIPD trainer, and has also taught at several local universities, she knows how to deliver engaging courses that fully involve participants through practical exercises, case studies, and Q&A sessions. No ‘death by PowerPoint’ here.

We have worked with Loates HR and Training for several years now. They have produced our employment contracts and handbooks, and have helped us on a consultancy basis several times.During this period, Team Loates have proven themselves a valuable part of our team: trusted, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.We recently had the privilege of attending one of their training workshops on the subject preparing for GDPR, this covered several topics including HR, marketing and data storage amongst other areas. The workshop was incredibly well planned and delivered in a comprehensive and engaging manner, the workshop included the supply of valuable assets and documents for attendees to take away and use within their business.I have come away from this workshop feeling far more knowledgeable and prepared for the new GDPR legislation.Team Loates always add amazing value into their service and go above and beyond expectations, for me the biggest testimonial for Loates over their knowledge and service with HR is how they manage and develop their own team, this is apparent in the way that we are looked after as customers.Go Team Loates!

I attended the ‘GDPR Making it Happen’ workshop back in April as someone with very little knowledge of the topic.Sarah and her team were very welcoming. The class had a relaxed atmosphere while really getting to the point. Sarah was very informative, with answers to almost all of our questions. If anything was raised with uncertainty of the answers, notes were made and answers were delivered to us after the course. The course also included follow up support, which was really handy for any further questions.During the workshop there was a good mix of handy, informative PowerPoint slides and tasks for us to work through. This ensured we really were taking in all of the information presented to us.The content was clear and easy to digest, even with a tricky subject such as GDPR.A benefit of the course was that it was limited to a small group, so there was plenty of opportunity to ask questions and go through things with Sarah.I would recommend the LoatesTraining courses to anyone looking to become more informed in areas of their businesses, whether you are a business owner or a member of staff like myself.The team also presented us with a light breakfast, with tea and coffee throughout the day- bonus!Katie Aldridge Essential Print Services (Derby)

We have been working with Loates for a number of years and are very pleased with the support we get from Loates HR. So far, we've worked on a number of varying projects; from updating our staff handbook and contracts, to management training regarding absenteeism, staff information sessions and onsite support with difficult HR-issues. The thing I love most about working with Loates - apart from their wealth of knowledge, they're very responsive and keen to share their knowledge with us. So at some point in the future, we may be able to deal with HR independently. But for now, I couldn't think of a better partner. Thanks for the support Team Loates!

HR Training & Employment Law Training

Equip your managers to spot and effectively deal with people issues at the earliest possible opportunity, keeping 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.

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. We've already helped many clients, and have received consistently excellent feedback from them, so we're confident that we can help you too.
