HR Services. How we can facilitate

Managing Restructures and Change

Restructures, HR strategy and planning

By helping you to create, develop, plan, communicate and deliver an HR strategy and HR plan that suits your organisational culture, reflects the needs of your company and is aligned to your business objectives and making sure the necessary changes are achieved and delivered through all levels of the organisation so the right skills are in place at minimal cost and disruption to your business.

Managing Recruitment and Selection

Recruitment, selection and induction

By managing all or parts of these processes (advertising roles, screening CV’s, short-listing, setting up interviews) providing/dealing with the paperwork (job descriptions, job ads, selection criteria, interview questions, offer letters, references) and enhancing interviewing techniques that result in finding the right people for your business at a fraction of the time and cost.

Managing Employees’ Performance and Employment

Performance improvement and appraisals

By improving performance levels and ensuring employees’ objectives are aligned with your company goals via a bespoke appraisal process, competence framework and appraisal interviewing techniques, facilitating regular feedback that result in high performing employees and tangible competitive advantage.

Redundancy planning and management

By knowing the legal requirements, the correct procedures and reducing your risk; giving guidance on consultation meetings, supporting you through each stage of the process and providing up-to-date and legally compliant documentation so a fair process is followed and the risk of a claim is diminished.

Capability, disciplinary and grievance

By handling procedures in a legally compliant and efficient manner without fear of reprisal: assisting you at each stage of the process as an independent third party: investigating matters, attending meetings, taking notes and providing the necessary paperwork so the process is as fair and stress-free as possible.

Leaves of absence

By managing short and long term absences effectively, whether sickness absence, time off for dependants, annual leave, time off in lieu or other leaves of absence; guiding you through the various options available and providing impartial advice that will alleviate problems and reduce business costs.

Maternity, paternity, shared parental leave and flexible working

By steering you through the myriad rules and regulations regarding eligibility, pay, leave, rights and entitlements and advising you with these issues so that a sensible work-life balance approach is achieved for your employees and your business.

Reward and recognition

By motivating and recognising your employees for the results they have achieved with a variety of tailor-made reward and recognition initiatives (financial and non-financial) that inspire, incentivise, engage and value them which promotes productivity and achieves your business goals.

Talent development, retention and succession planning

By seeking ways of developing and retaining your most valuable employees and identifying the high-performers, setting and communicating expectations and defining what success looks like - thereby reducing your staff turnover and replacement costs. We can help you plan for long-term business growth by focussing on the future leadership of your organisation.

Training, mentoring and coaching

By determining the real training needs of your employees and finding the most effective training tools available. Our training experts provide bespoke training, off –the- shelf courses or personal coaching and mentoring. We can deliver programmes that are challenging, supportive and informal, have a practical focus, allowing your people to act and improve on what they have learnt with regular feedback sessions.

Discrimination, bullying and harassment

By advising you when discrimination, bullying or harassment scenarios occur and identifying resolutions to difficult or sensitive situations: investigating complaints in an objective manner, interviewing all parties involved, attending meetings and communicating decisions and actions to be taken where necessary.

HR Documentation

By ensuring all contracts of employment, employee handbooks, job descriptions, templates etc are up-to-date and legally compliant thus maintaining uniformity and consistency in decision making, minimising risk of costly disputes and avoiding expensive employment tribunals. Our six monthly update service covers employment legislation changes.
