You may have just started out in business or have been a director for many years. Whatever your experience, you should be aware of your (ever expanding) duties as a director, and those of your fellow directors.
While many organisations offer advice via generalist HR consultants, our team of employment law specialists offer your business the added advantage that comes with specialist legal expertise, commercial awareness and a commitment to client care.
When it comes to managing people, understanding your obligations and ‘getting it right’ is key. Practical and legally correct HR advice can help resolve problems early on and minimise the risk of Employment Tribunals proceedings.
Our HR Service encompasses up to date advice and tailored support which can be provided remotely or on-site depending on the needs of your business.
Areas we can support you with include the following:
- Managing recruitment and selection
- Managing investigations (e.g. disciplinary, grievance, whistleblowing)
- Chairing hearings and appeals
- Drafting outcome letters
- Sickness absence management
- Performance management
- Managing maternity, paternity, parental and flexible working requests
- Re-organisation / redundancy management
Our HR Service is normally provided on a 1 year renewable contract basis. Our fees are competitive and set according to the amount of assistance you require from us.
Training for you and your managers
Having policies and procedures in place is not always enough. To ensure your managers can identify issues as soon as they arise and that they act appropriately in every situation, they will need some basic training.
Indeed, if you want to protect your business from potential liability for any discriminatory acts carried out by your staff, you will need to evidence that you have taken all reasonable steps to prevent them from doing it. Having trained your staff goes some way towards this.
We can provide in-house training on an individual or group basis on wide range of topics, including:
- How to conduct a recruitment process
- Managing a grievance process
- Managing a disciplinary process
- Running a performance management process
- Managing sickness absences
