Welcome to Workplace Law blogs

Last autumn I wrote a comment piece for the Workplace Law Handbooks looking forward to 2012 and the exciting changes that would be taking place at Workplace Law.

Well, two months into the new year, we have already seen some major developments come to fruition.

On Friday 13 January we launched our brand new website and, whilst we will still continue to improve and advance this throughout the year, we have already had a very positive response from you, our users. If you do have any further comments, queries or suggestions though please do get in touch with me: . It is important for us to know how we can improve things and you are the best placed people to let us know what is working and what isn’t.

Part of the new site is our brand new Info Centre, a ‘one-stop-shop’ where you will find all you need to know to manage your workplace and fulfil your legal obligations. We have incorporated a wide variety of content types and formats so that there is something for everybody. It includes regulations, official guidance, news analysis, case reviews, briefings, Workplace Law Magazine, the Workplace Law Handbooks, and our new online TV channel. So with films, news, forums, online content and downloadable PDFs, we hope there is something that suits your way of working.

As technology changes so quickly it is crucial to keep up with new formats and treat them all as opportunities. Varying our offering was a great challenge for us but has also given Workplace Law a much better platform from which to help support our customers.

In line with that expansion, I’d like to welcome you to our new blog area. Workplace Law has really taken on social media in the last year and it has been very successful. The next logical step from tweeting on Twitter, broadcasting on YouTube and networking on LinkedIn was to give all of the experts at Workplace a place in which we could all hear what they have to say. There is so much going on in the UK at the moment with legislation under permanent scrutiny. Our HR, health and safety and environmental consultants have a vast wealth of opinions and advice and we want to make sure we share them with you.

I really hope you’ll find these useful, that you will get to know the faces behind Workplace Law, be inspired by their insights, utilise their advice and engage with them to create meaningful debate that furthers the realms of employment law, health and safety and environmental management.

Here’s to the future…
