SEASONS GREETINGS

Welcome to your December newsletter.

Right now you're no doubt rushing around in advance of the big day, and hopefully looking forward to a short (but hard-earned) break between Christmas and New Year.

Here at Workforce Guardian we're also busy continuing our roll out of new and updated content, tools, and other handy resources for our subscribers.

We'll be continuing our enhancements across 2015, and we're very excited about the plans we have to make managing people and complying with employment laws even easier!

On behalf of the entire team I'd like to wish you, your colleagues, and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year!
 

Warm regards,
 

David Bates BA (Govt) LL.B (Hons) 

Managing Director
