Howden Employment Webinar



02 February 2021

We are delighted to announce details of our next fun, informative, and free to attend, Howden Employment Webinar.

Our 2020 virtual events were a huge success, and we are aiming to continue the same mix of engagement and important topical comment in our first virtual event of 2021.

Once again the speakers will be familiar to our loyal seminar/webinar audience.  Employment Lawyer Matt Jenkin will provide useful insights on this key topic, whilst Howden’s Employee Benefits & HR thought-leader Steve Herbert will provide his usual fast-paced commentary on relevant current events. 

Full details of the webinar and how to book a place(s) are shown below.

Agenda and Timing:

This webinar will take place on Thursday 11th March, and the approximate event timings are detailed below:

10:00    Delegate Log-In Commences

10:10    Welcome and Opening Comments

10:15    Delegate Voting

10:25    Employee Benefits:        “End of the Beginning?”

So what can employers learn from the last year, and how can business better prepare for a future health crisis?  Steve will look in detail at this important topic, and will also provide some practical thoughts on the expected post-pandemic rise in flexible working (and the strangely compelling dynamics of a 4-day working week).  A review of the Chancellor’s Budget announcements will also be included.  Another unusual – but hopefully engaging – update from Howden’s well known employee benefits and HR thought-leader.   Speaker:  Steve Herbert, Head of Benefits Strategy, Howden Employee Benefits & Wellbeing

11:00    Delegate Voting/ Comfort Break

11:10    Employment Law:          “A farewell to furlough?”

Matt Jenkin will cast his expert eyes over the latest plans for the UK furlough scheme and other COVID-19 support measures available to employers in 2021.  Matt will also look at other possible employment law changes in the year ahead including the latest on the off-payroll/IR35 changes, the Government’s consultation on abolishing non-compete clauses in contracts of employment, and the current status of the long awaited Employment Bill and the changes that could bring for employers.  An important and necessary session for all HR and Finance professionals.  Speaker:  Matt Jenkin, Employment Partner, Moorcrofts LLP
