Sirius Talent Solutions has announced two new strategic partnerships to support the corporate travel community with post-Covid workforce challenges and skills gaps.
The recruitment specialist, which has transformed its business during the pandemic, has partnered with Menzies Law, specialist employment lawyers, to give clients access to expert employment law and people management advice.
In addition, Sirius has joined forces with ESB Training & Coaching Consultancy to provide tailored online and face-to-face training solutions, and ILM qualifications, specifically adapted to customer service, sales, managing change and managing remote teams
Sirius CEO Lynne Griffiths said: “Pre-Covid our clients, both on the corporate buyer and supplier side, looked to us for help with recruitment for senior management roles. However, the devastating impact of the pandemic on staff levels has caused a major shift in their needs and they are looking for much wider support as business travel returns.
“This not only includes reviewing onboarding staff documentation such as employee contracts and staff handbooks; clients are also looking for employment law advice as well as staff training support.
“We are delighted to partner with Menzies Law to ensure our clients have instant access to expert legal advice, no matter what the employment matter. And our partnership with ESB, who are very experienced in the travel industry, will enable us to deliver training solutions that help address the challenges our clients are currently facing,” added Griffiths, who was the winner of the Business Transformation Initiative Award at the Business Travel People Awards 2021, which were held this week.
Sirius has also appointed Alison Dalton as Associate Director to work closely with clients to support and advise them on diversity and inclusion plans, and best practice in building accessibility and customer service improvements.
Dalton previously held senior roles at British Airways, including seven years as the airline’s Head of Diversity & Inclusion.
