Initial Site Visit
Keeping your company compliant with the laws and regulations around HR not only takes time, but it also requires vast amounts of specialist knowledge. Knowledge which if not accurate, could result in significant costs to your business.
That’s why as part of our package we will always visit your site and do an initial assessment whereby we can make recommendations based on our wealth of experience to ensure you are compliant with the ever growing and changing laws and policies around HR. You can also utilise this visit to ask any questions or voice any areas of concern which you feel you and your company would benefit from further understanding, with the opportunity to explore these areas further.
HR Documentation and Policy Review
HR compliance is a process of defining both individual and group behaviours to ensure your business is following all applicable laws and policies.
We can help with all your HR-related documentation; including contracts, company handbooks, induction processes, along with your company’s policies and procedures. We will review and amend any existing documents, ensuring these are compliant whilst remaining specific to your business and its operational needs.
Achieving GDPR Compliance shouldn't feel like a battle – but for many companies it is still a minefield – so let us do the hard work, we will create and issue all of the required documents and help you implement GDPR successfully within your business.
Processes & Procedures Review
A process defines a set of procedures. Those procedures represent the individual steps within those processes. When is the last time you reviewed your businesses processes and procedures, or made any changes to them? So many businesses become complacent in this area ‘because that’s how they’ve always done it’ - but one thing we have learnt from working with different clients, in different sectors, is that there are many different ways in which change can complement your business.
We are more than happy to share our experiences, advice and opinions, giving an impartial view to your current processes and procedures as there may be a better or more efficient way for you going forward.
Employment Law Updates
Running a business can be very rewarding but complying with ever changing legislation along with managing people in addition to the day to day running of the business can be very demanding. This is where our strap line comes in; ‘Your business in our hands’.
By allowing us to provide you with HR support – this allows you to focus on running your business whilst we ensure your obligations as an employer are covered. We will also provide you with regular updates on any employment or HR related changes in legislation or news.
Disciplinary and Grievance
It is often seen as a difficult situation when faced with handling disciplinary's and grievances, but we aim to eliminate this burden. As case law dictates, employees must be provided with a means by which they can officially raise complaints and seek redress, and likewise a business needs a set of rules that set the standards of behaviour and conduct in the workplace.
Our services will provide that peace of mind, that the situation will be handled as effectively and smoothly as possible, for both you and your employees. Whether you require advice, documentation drafts, chair of a meeting, or an investigation, we are able to assist you in whichever capacity you would prefer.
When absence can be such a huge cost to every business – finding ways to reduce this is naturally beneficial to the company. We can help assist with different proven strategy's and effective tools which you can implement into your workplace
Employee Engagement is a broad concept which is often overlooked within businesses today. However, engaging with your employees is critical for staff retention; reducing employee turnover and ensuring high motivation, job satisfaction and commitment to the companies’ goals and values.
Thus, in turn, will result in the achievement of higher levels of productivity.
We will work with you to help you understand the importance of employee engagement, demonstrating different ways in which you can incorporate this within your business.
Recruitment and Selection
We understand the importance of finding the right people for your business. With each business having their own unique ethos, culture and work ethic, finding someone to match this is not always easy, and not forgetting time consuming.
We can take the stress of the recruitment process away from you. From putting together job adverts which will attract the right people for you, to managing the applications and assisting with any necessary shortlisting. When it comes down to the interview process itself, we can recommend relevant questions that will be successful in assessing both the required and desirable skills. We can also action the post interview process, managing both the unsuccessful and successful candidates, drafting the offer letters and the relevant pre-employment checks, along with the induction process.
Effective performance management is key to productivity and growth; if poor performance is neglected or not managed properly it can have a serious effect on your business.
We can help you develop an effective performance appraisal programme tailored to your needs.

According to ACAS, Mental ill health costs employers in the UK £30 billion every year through lost production, recruitment and absence.

Additionally, taking steps to better support the mental health of your employees can help to reduce the severity and duration of this within the workplace. With the help of one of our specialist partners, we can help you and your employees understand mental health. By committing to improve mental health in the workplace, you can take steps to not only reduce the negative impacts of this on both your employees and your business, but better educate your workforce about mental health, and where to go should further support be needed.
