Friday podcast: absence costing tools, tax breaks for diverse employers and training cuts

HR news and analysis including:

  • what employers can do to help tackle violent crime and help inner city youths find employment
  • how a new tool for HR directors can show how much money illness is costing the workplace
  • Boots HR director Alex Gourlay has suggested that employers should receive tax breaks for promoting diversity in the workplace, such as for when they favour hiring under-represented groups of people equally qualified to over-represented groups, as suggested in the draft Equalities Bill in June
  • and why the latest training budget cuts across firms in the UK will affect businesses long term.

Presenter Louisa Peacock is joined by Greg Pitcher, Guy Logan and John Charlton.
