Results of the HR Hub Poll in September 2021

We asked the professionals who attended our Zoom HR Hub in September 2021 to answer four multiple choice questions as a segue into an Employment Law Update delivered by Royds Withy King. The results provided an insight into the challenges facing companies and not-for-profit organisations as they continue to deal with a return to the workplace, flexible working and redundancies.
