In April 2020, Enterprise Ireland published, in partnership with The HR Suite, a comprehensive Covid- 19 Employer Guide to provide direction on how EI & LEO SME clients should manage the Covid-19 situation from an employer/employee perspective. The guide includes up-to-date legislative amendments which impact on the way in which companies manage the health and well-being of staff in addition to key HR policy templates that may be adapted by companies for their own use. This proves The HR Suite track record on such projects in producing relevant, timely and useful guides for Enterprise Ireland and LEO clients. Following the Covid-19 Employer Guide a live webinar was facilitated by Enterprise Ireland led by The HR Suite which was proven successful with good feedback on the same. View PDF

At our staff conference recently Caroline chaired a session with 250 people and launched the consultation phase to inform the development of our People Strategy.
