Made-to-measure HR support
We're not one of those HR providers that just goes for a one-size-fits-all solution. We know how confusing and intimidating employment law can be, so we'll hand-hold you all of the way if that's what you need. But if you're pretty much sure about what you're doing HR-wise, and just want a sounding-board to check your thinking, then we won't patronise you or waste your time.
Business-focussed HR support
We won't just give you access to a database of downloadable document templates and let you get on with it. Conversely, we won't constantly berate you with long-winded lectures concerning convoluted Euro-directives, and issue numerous proclamations as to what you're forbidden from doing. Instead, we provide exactly the right amount of no-nonsense, straightforward HR advice in plain-speaking English. We understand that you're in charge of running your company, so we'll give you a range of options based on your attitude to risk, and guide you through the pros and cons of these, so that you can decide which action you'd prefer to take. Our approach is all about listening to what you actually want to achieve with your business, and then giving you the necessary practical HR support to help make that happen.
Need HR documents or processes?
If you don't have any HR documentation or procedures in place then we can provide a complete framework with all the structure you need to ensure legal compliance, meet your obligations to your staff, and prevent future workforce problems from occurring. If your people processes are incomplete, put in some time ago, or you aren't even sure whether you actually have any, we can review your current situation, and fix any missing or out of date parts.
Don't have an internal HR team?
If you don't have an internal HR team, and you'd like your non-HR managers to actually carry out the bulk of your day-to-day HR work, then we can guide them. Our experienced trainers can teach managers about employment law and the practicalities of carrying out common HR processes. Alternatively, we can provide a fully outsourced HR service where we take it all off your hands, and handle absolutely everything for you. Or something in between.
Recruiting an internal HR team?
And if you decide your expanding business warrants its own in-house HR team at some point, then we're completely fine with that, and perfectly happy to help you set it up. We can use our experience of working and recruiting within the HR industry to help you find the right HR people for your business. This could involve us drawing up job specifications, drafting and placing adverts, or assisting with screening, testing, and interviewing candidates. We can also provide followup support to help them get settled in.
Already have an internal HR team?
If you already have an internal HR team, we can work with them at a technical level to provide mentoring, specialist advice, or simply additional resources. We can help with particularly challenging cases, provide cover for holidays and sickness, and manage fluctuations in workload. In particular, we can act as a sounding board, mentor, or contingency for lone internal HR staff, particularly those who have inherited the role and learnt on the job, rather than through formal HR training.
Strategic HR for the future
If your day-to-day operational HR is all under control and operating smoothly, we can help you with strategic HR projects to support future business objectives. Our senior consultants are used to carrying out a business partner role, including operating at board level, and can even act as your HR director if that's what you require.
Whatever you need, we can help
So, whether you need our assistance at operational or strategic levels, and whether you need full service HR support or just to call on our expertise when you need it, we offer a range of completely tailored service options to suit your business. Hands on, hands off, use us more, or use us less - it's completely up to you.
