Friday Podcast: Apprenticeship drive, M&S whistleblower, discrimination cases

HR news and views including:




  • As the government steps up efforts to urge employers to offer apprenticeships, HR practitioners are concerned how this may come across as yet more job cuts are on the cards.


  • M&S whistleblower Tony Goode talks to Personnel Today’s sister publication Computer Weekly on his imminent trial, why he blew the whistle on a measure to cut redundancy pay, why there is a “culture of surveillance” at M&S, and why he thinks he was unfairly dismissed.

  • Two discrimination cases involving a muslim woman at HBOS and the Met Police.
