Karen Coleman, an employment law specialist at Myers says “With the introduction of increasingly more complex legislation, being an employer has never been more difficult.
“We have designed Chamber Resource to give East Cheshire businesses peace of mind. All companies need to have plans in place to ensure they comply with the law.”
“Chamber Resource is designed to ensure members have easy access to legal and HR advice at a fixed price.”
The package for Chamber members offers three levels of service, with a baseline standard of an audit of existing employment documentation backed up by a full report on any recommended changes.
A special starter package has been designed for businesses employing up to five staff. They can choose to take either the bronze. silver or gold Chamber Resource packages and get the added bonus of a two hour employment law training session – “What every new employer needs to know.”

Every year the Chamber holds an annual Business Awards event. This is a celebratory evening for all local businessmen and women to showcase the best of East Cheshire. Chamber members are encouraged to nominate themselves or a company that they feel deserves recognition for their work.
There are numerous categories each year for any small or large business to win. The nominated companies provide the judges who are Chamber members who work closely in partnership with the East Cheshire Chamber to decide on an overall winner for each category. Each judge goes out to visit the nominated company in the work place to discuss why they deserve to win. This information and scoring is fed back to the panel of judges where a top secret decision is made and announced at the Business Awards evening. Each winner is presented with a trophy and certificate.
