The Brodies Academy for HR Professionals is a half day programme during which members of our top ranked employment team will look at and discuss key HR topics in detail and will provide attendees with practical information and guidance to assist them in their role as an HR Professional. 

The Academy is designed to be highly interactive and will be delivered using case studies, worked examples and group exercises to ensure attendees get the most out of the programme.


The Academy is open to professionals who are new to HR, in the early stages of their career or returning to HR following a period of family leave or a career break, and those who are experienced in a particular aspect of HR and are now in an expanded role. Experienced HR professionals who would like to attend by way of a refresher are also welcome.


This programme provides an invaluable opportunity for attendees to spend time discussing and considering key HR topics with our employment team and other HR professionals who are at a similar stage in their careers. Our employment team will highlight the key legal risks and considerations arising in relation to each of the topics but the focus will be on how attendees deal with these matters on a day-to-day basis.   

The Academy also gives attendees the opportunity to network and build lasting relationships with their peers.

The Academy is free of charge and delegates can request a Certificate of Attendance.

2019 Programme
Harassment at work is hitting the headlines – and not just in the media. It is an issue for regulators, employers and the government.
But what exactly is it and when does it create risk for your organisation?

At our next HR Academy we will address the different ways in which HR teams can help ensure that their organisation is responding appropriately. Delegates will leave with a clear plan to address:

1. Identifying unlawful harassment and understanding the legal rules that apply to it
2. Creating the right policy framework for your organisation
3. Leading the initial response to an allegation of harassment – suspension, communication, other practical steps
4. Managing the investigation - balancing the rights of everyone involved
5. Supporting the disciplinary processes
6. Managing and resolving legal disputes that involve an element of harassment.

As with all of our Academy sessions, this series is suitable for those new to HR or who are returning after a period away from practice. Given the subject matter, however, more experienced practitioners may also benefit from attending.
