March Designated Digest

Hello! and welcome to our March edition!

In this month’s newsletter we kick off with diversity and inclusion and recruitment, looking at resources tools and techniques. Now more than ever, HR professionals need to demonstrate the ability to develop D&I strategies to attract, recruit and retain a diverse workforce.

We also take advice from our friends at Xero, on how to manage small business cash flow. Xero’s small business trends report shows that 60% of small business owners are worried about their household finances running low.

Then finally we look at the top social media trends for 2022, there may be some surprises in there!

A quick admin note – our newsletter is now going to be moving to a quarterly issue, ensuring we bring you the most valuable content and resources to your inbox.

Best Wishes,

Hello! and welcome to our December edition!

In this month’s newsletter, we talk about recruitment. Hiring a PA or Personal Assistant might be your very first hire as a business owner. It can both be an exciting and scary step as an employer.

You will have new HR and Accountancy responsibilities but it is important to get it right from the beginning so that both you and your employee start off in the best possible way.

We also look at inductions in the role of the recruitment process as well as post-pandemic Accountancy support.

Best Wishes,
