The KBSA has announced that it will host a new series of webinars in this month, as its retail members begin to open showrooms.
The five webinars, provided by the KBSA’s partner Croner, will cover a range of HR and business advice as members begin to reopen the workplace.
Topics such as redundancy, flexible working, resolving disputes and employees’ annual leave rights will be discussed in depth, and the association will offer additional weekly Zoom meetings.
‘With the end of lockdown in sight and new government guidelines for shops on how to operate safely during coronavirus, it is vital that our members have access to the latest guidance and support,’ says KBSA national chair Richard Hibbert.
‘Our webinars and guidance will be relevant for those currently open and those that are closed, helping them to consider what their operations need to look like when they are ready to open.
‘We are still operating in unchartered waters and we remain focused on supporting our members during this difficult period.”
‘We are issuing regular updates and working with Croner so that our members can stay up to date and understand how schemes like the furlough are changing as quickly as possible.’
