What is the HR & Training Forum?
The forum exists to provide help and support for businesses from all sectors across our region, particularly set up for those working as HR and training specialists, or as middle/senior line managers with responsibility for managing people. It is co-ordinated by Kingsway Consulting Ltd in Scunthorpe, and it provides a completely FREE opportunity for all participants to engage in the following activities:
- Networking with other managers from a wide range of local employers
- Sharing and exchanging ideas on policies, procedures and practices involved with managing people
- Investigating and becoming involved with initiatives and funding support designed to benefit local employers and all levels of their workforces
- Benefitting from professional and personal development of individual skills, knowledge and experience
- Accessing and contributing to relevant and valuable benchmarking information for the local area
- Contributing to the strategy and resources made available to our region by both central and local governments
The Forum is employer led, with the Chair being an HR Manager with regional experience of food manufacturing, who will co-ordinate meetings and arrange guest speakers, particularly from external specialists and from within local businesses who are able to offer their own expertise and share their experiences. The sessions incorporate an interesting mix of presentations and lively workshops, which allow participants to share ideas on best practices and networking.
Where and when to the meetings take place?
Meetings take place at Global House in Scunthorpe, and occasionally are hosted by local employers. Meetings are split between afternoon sessions and breakfast meetings, throughout the year.

Will joining the HR & Training Forum be of benefit to me?
The meetings are extremely beneficial to anyone with a responsibility for Human Resources, training, and related people management issues. Valuable information regarding funding, legislation updates, business support and training opportunities is freely shared, networking between organisations is encouraged, many personal and business development opportunities are identified and secured through membership. Being employer led means the focus, relevance and direction of the group remains centred on the needs and issues of our local business community, which Kingsway Consulting is totally committed to supporting in every way it can.
The HR Forum continues to attract membership from a range of business sectors. We have members from the public, private and voluntary sectors, from small and large businesses.
We have compiled a programme that will include a number of topics that have been raised by members, as well as topics where we have been approached by individuals keen to share their knowledge and experiences with others.
For specific details of these events, please do not hesitate to contact us. We welcome suggestions for topics at future meetings, so if you have any ideas please do share them with us. We aim to organise events that will be of interest and value, so that they will benefit everyone involved.
