Presented by Twelve Winds Consulting and Partners Employment Lawyers, the series will provide an organisational development approach combined with the employment law perspective.

Leadership in HR:

16th June 2016

  • Personality Clashes and how to deal with them
  • Becoming a True Strategic Partner

For HR professionals a deep understanding of leadership skills is vital. Attracting, developing, and retaining great leaders is critical to organisational success. By aligning the leadership capacity of the organisation to its values and strategy, the HR department plays a vital role in developing organisational cultures that are cohesive, competent and have competitive advantage. In a highly complex, challenging, and competitive workplace HR needs to understand, promote, and support the very best quality of leadership there can be. Furthermore, HR professionals are leaders themselves. Their actions, leadership, and development have huge impact. HR is not a function that sits outside the organisation. HR should lead at the executive level – strategically, mindfully, and skilfully – for the benefit of the whole organisation.
What’s in store?
This will be a participative seminar that will give you the tools to make your HR department a true strategic partner for your business. Topics will include:

  • Building the case for strategic HR
  • Taking up your strategic place in the organisation’s leadership
  • Influencing, engaging, and communicating with other leaders in your business
  • The Employment Law Perspective – Personality clashes in the workplace

Who’s it for?

The seminar is for anyone who wants to learn how HR can contribute strategically to the business.

  • HR Directors and Managers
  • Line Managers, and
  • Business leaders who work with the HR function

Why attend?

For a frank discussion of the strategic role of HR and the challenges facing HR professionals seeking to serve as strategic business partners.

Employment Law Update Seminar – ‘Discrimination from the Inside Out’ – 10th September 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended our Discrimination from the Inside Out event on the 10th September 2014, we had a great turn out and are looking to use a bigger room for our next event. To view the slides from the event please click this link: Slideshow

Five points which the attendees to our ‘Discrimination from the Inside Out’ found most interesting from Professor Livingston’s presentation:

The question of ‘What is diversity’ did interest most of the attendees who thereafter came to learn of the three answers to this question:

  • Surface-level Diversity: diversity in observable categories (race, gender, etc.).
  • Deep-level Diversity: diversity in culture, ideas, perspective or point of view.
  • Motivated Diversity: diversity being construed in a manner convenient to the perceiver.

Why is diversity important?

  • Discrimination and Fairness: it is a moral imperative. Progress is measured by recruitment and retention goals.
  • Access and legitimacy: diversity is valued however, in its place. Often diverse individuals may feel used, constrained and exploited.
  • Integration and learning: diversity is viewed as a valuable source since diverse people provide unique perspectives and shapes the organisation.

The underlining causes of discrimination

It was also interesting to find out that prejudice against women is not characterized by negative emotions but rather ambivalence:

  • Warmth (Positivite)
    HR managers and director training

    Employment Law training in the City of London

Women are viewed as kind
Women are viewed as moral
Women are viewed as valuable

  • Paternalism (Negative)

Women are viewed as subordinate
Women are seen as dependent and weak
Women are held to a high standard of “purity”


A research by Tiends in 2001 demonstrated that Bill Clinton was seen as having a higher status and being a stronger leader when he showed anger vs. sadness following the Lewinsky scandal.

Please join us at this special event which shines a spotlight on the very birthplace of discrimination in the workplace and reviews in detail the current law on diversity and discrimination that all employers should know.

We are delighted to have Prof. Robert Livingstone who will discuss his fascinating findings about perceptions and reactions to physical appearances in the workplace.

What you will gain:

  • An update on all key areas of Discrimination Law; Sex, Race, Disability, Age and Religion or Belief
  • Insight based on a deeper delve into human psychology to examine how physical appearance and nonconsious processes influence stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination.

Prof. Robert Livingston is Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Director for the Centre for Leadership, Ethics, and Diversity (LEAD) at University of Sussex. He has also served as a leadership and diversity consultant for numerous Fortune 500 companies.

His research focuses on issues of leadership, authority, diversity, and legitimacy. In particular, his work focuses on the unique challenges of women and minority leaders, and the barriers to and benefits of organisational diversity. He is also interested in topics related to ethics and power, leader selection, social justice, and intergroup discrimination.

He has featured in prominent media outlets including: The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BBC, Newsweek, Forbes, Bloomberg Businessweek and the Financial Times.

Date: Wednesday 10th September, from 2pm – 5pm.

Venue: 23 Austin Friars, London EC2N 2QP

Hina Talk

Partners Employment Lawyers: Hina trains Managers and Directors London




The Employment Law Seminar on the 18th June 2014 was very informative and relaxing, thank you.

Kerrie Smith, HR & Office Manager, John Brown Media

“I would like to acknowledge and appreciate the role that Partners Employment Lawyers and in particular Remziye Ozcan, played in securing a Settlement Agreement with my former employer.

Remziye was very helpful in clarifying my legal position in the debate with my employer over redeployment vs. retirement vs.  redundancy.  Even though we work on opposite sides of the world and in different time zones, she always responded to my queries, quickly absorbed the volumes of data on company policy and procedures which I sent her and promptly provided me sound practical advice to help achieve my objective.  The whole tone of the conversation changed when my employer recognized that I had engaged professional outside help and there is no doubt in my mind that without the intervention of Partners Employment Lawyers, the debate would have been more protracted and likely more contentious.

Their charges were very reasonable and in any event the cost is more than covered by the outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Partners Employment Lawyers to any employee who found him or herself in a similar position.”

Individual Client

“Hina, thank you very much for yesterday’s employment law seminar, it was extremely informative, skilfully presented in a professional and ‘HR friendly’ manner.

 I was particularly impressed by you and your team as all of you communicated your respective knowledgeable and experience in a pragmatic way, which, in my personal experience is not always the case. I have attended other legal firm’s seminars and although the content is usually good it is frequently presented using too much ‘lawyer speak’, often assuming the very worst outcome including extreme escalated litigation, which for the majority of cases is not the most likely outcome. I realise that we as HR practitioners, need to be aware of worst case scenarios but sometimes there is too much emphasis on this. “

Suzanne Prince, HR Contractor

‘A highly talented and resourceful lawyer’

Richard Rodelli, President and CEO, Thermo Electric Inc’

I have been using Hina’s Penguin Guide and it’s fantastic

Danish Ahmad – (Chamber of Commerce)

“A well though out and delivered employment law seminar that covered important and critical areas of employment law and issues facing employers”

Fran Ryba, HR Consultant, Fran Ryba Consultancy Ltd

10th September 2014 Discrimination From the Inside Out Event – “I’ll take this opportunity to say what a great seminar it was and that the passion and knowledge of professor Livingstone was truly inspiring.”

Florentina Pascaru, HR Coordinator, Central & Cecil

“I was extremely pleased with how Remziye handled my case, a difficult and delicate dispute with my employers. I found her to be professional, courteous and understanding of my situation. My case got resolved very quickly with the end-result exceeding my expectations.

I am very grateful to Remziye for all her help and would not hesitate to recommend Remziye to my friends and family.”

Individual Client

“I would like to say that Partners were very helpful in sorting out a case in my previous workforce that could have been a potentially awkward situation.

They dealt with the case really well and made me feel calm in a difficult time for me.

They were able to sort out the case quickly and were able to offer me some good advice along the way.”

Individual Client

A short note to say I found you and all my dealings with the company highly professional; it was a pleasure ( under the circumstances) doing business with you. You took care to listen to the detail of the case,  take it on board, build a relationship with me and the aggressor , and come to a final and acceptable agreement swiftly.

Individual client

Thank you so much for all your help and advice. It was nice dealing with someone who honestly cared

Kylea Jarrold

Great Employment law update – Thank you.

Raffelina Huber, Associate Director, Central Eastern CSU

Thank you for all your great work on the tribunal. I am pleased with the outcome and continue to hold my breath and hope that XXX can move on.

Chief Executive of City Company

A special thanks to Hina Belitz for her interesting talk on what we must take into account before employing someone at any level. She carried us through what could be a “heavy weight” topic with such ease that we could have listened to her for hours!

Marilena Narbona – The Athena Network

“Partners came on site to deliver a session on managing redundancies…their delivery was clear and was easily understood – there was certainly no confusing legal speak or jargon that we had to get our heads around. Partners are highly recommended”

Company Training Client

Hina and Remziye recently delivered employment law sessions to our London management team which focused on a range of key employment law issues. Feedback was that the sessions were excellent, informative and well presented. They discussed not only actual case law but also advised on company-relevant scenarios, based on their knowledge of our internal policies and procedures.

Very useful, thank you – more time needed

HR Administrator attendee

Employment Law Seminar 6th March 2014 – The two lady speakers were great. It was really helpful having questions from the floor and they both provided really helpful case studies of the recent cases they worked on. Overall to cram all that information in just two hours, it was a good event and would like to attend more!

Chetna Kerai, NatCen Social Research

‘Made me laugh when I should have been crying’

D Rudich

“I would like to thank you for the way in which you handled my employment matters.  The whole team at Partners were at all times professional, compassionate and kept me fully informed at every stage in particular Remziye helped me through a situation that I found very difficult and stressful and I cannot thank her enough, I would highly recommend Partners Services.”

Individual Client

Since Hina’s training day we have reduced absences by 60%

Mark Jackson, Seebord

“Thank you for your hard work, persistent and diligent efforts over the last few months in bringing this case to resolution.

I do not believe that we would have been able to resolve this matter without your involvement as legal advisor.

Great work and successful outcome.”


Tom Dyson

Thank you. The service I got from you it was excellent.

Akin Akinyemi

‘Hina, you’re a superstar!!!’

Rory Kindlon

You have been affable and extremely efficient from the minute I met you. I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me. A million thanks once again.

Saleh Abdulrahim

The Employment Law Seminar on the 18th June 2014 was professional, informative, practically interactive and enjoyable. Lovely venue – calm & helped the acoustics. Thank you.

Suzanne Prince, HR Consultant, Osram

I have worked with Hina Belitz on numerous complex employment issues within our business. We have an open and consultative relationship which ensures risks are addressed in a consistent manner. This has led to the honesty and openness I rely on to make key strategic decisions for the business.

Di Milliard, Head of Human Resources & Recruitment Business Monitor International

Employment Law Seminar 18th June 2014 – A very interesting session with good speakers covering a range of topics

Julie Fisher-Jones, Parliamentary & Health Service Ombudsman

I could not have hoped for better assistance and expertise in resolving the recent issue around my employment than I received from Partners Employment Lawyers.

In a very stressful and unfamiliar situation for me, I was extremely grateful that Partners Employment Lawyers understood my situation quickly and perceptively, and then worked hard to secure for me the outcome that I desired.

The firm displayed a level of professionalism and sensitivity to my personal situation that I appreciated and will not forget.

At all times the lawyers were mindful of the result I desired. As the matter progressed they explained to me clearly and in balanced terms the likelihood of achieving that outcome.

I appreciated Partners Employment Lawyers also giving me thoughtful advice on other, broader points relevant to my future employment, which I now understand it was important to make clear as part of a successful outcome. Without reminding me of these, my longer-term interests, I could easily have thought about only the immediate problem at hand, which I now see would have been ultimately to my detriment.

Partners Employment Lawyers spoke with me from a more holistic perspective on my employment future than I was able to take, which this was an immense benefit to me. Giving me a calm and encompassing perspective at such moments was, itself, an immense relief to me, as was simply having someone on my side.

Individual Client

The Penguin Guide to Employment Rights will help management and workers alike to navigate this increasingly complex and important area of law

Cherie Booth

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Remziye and Partners Employment Lawyers for the support and professional service. You were extremely knowledgeable and efficient and I would have no hesitation in using the service again.”
