Editor’s note
=============
Weight – 9st 12lbs, chocolate – 1 bar, wine – 3 glasses,
boyfriends – nil …

We’re delighted to bring you the first of a new diary column.
Sue Kingston, a self-employed HR Consultant is the Bridget Jones
of the HR world albeit with slightly more glamour and a touch
more panache – in this first extract Sue guides us through a
week in her life filled with the highs and lows of working in HR
and the eternal self-battering of too many calories and not
enough dates.

Read on to hear more of Sue’s victories and disasters at:

Are you doing enough to protect your employees’ eyesight?
/—————————————————————
Eyecare Vouchers are a uniquely tangible way to demonstrate your
compliance with the law as well as your concern for the welfare
of your employees. They are the most flexible and convenient way
to ensure your employees receive regular eye tests because
unlike schemes which tie you to a particular chain, Eyecare
Vouchers allow your employees the freedom to choose the optician
that is most convenient to them.
