A series of workshops organised by Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce are helping members keep up to date with the latest advice on issues such as work permits, industrial relations and health and safety.
The Chamber’s CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Workshops create an opportunity for employers to get valuable insights from leading experts on matters which affect all business sectors on the Island. Jane Dellar, Chief Executive of the Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce, said:
“The feedback we have received from members who have attended our CPD Workshops has been overwhelmingly positive. Subjects covered in recent workshops include work permits, industrial relations and what employers can do about the misuse of social media by employees. We’ve focused on topics that affect all employers but it’s been driven for the smaller business that may not have specialist legal or HR departments. Our speakers have been from Government, as well as the private sector, who have given their time freely and I’d like to thank them for sharing their expertise”.
Colin Coole, HR Manager at Capital International Group, said:
“The workshops are a great initiative set up by Chamber. Their content covers real issues faced by employers on a day-to-day basis, across a range of subjects. Workshops are focused on delivering practical and relevant information to all sectors of the island’s business community. Each session lasts one to two hours and the low cost allows all sizes of business to benefit. I would like to congratulate the team at Chamber and the expert presenters, as well as encourage others to take advantage of these welcome opportunities.”
All of the workshops are held at the at Chamber’s offices at Athol House, Athol Street, Douglas. For more information about becoming a member of the Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce go to www.iomchamber.org.im or call 674941.
