ad-hoc

Ad hoc and projects

In addition to our retained HR advice and fixed fee packages we offer a full range of HR services tailored to suit the particular needs of your business.

From one-off specific projects to clients who may only need occasional hands-on support, we offer guidance and support through the complexities of people management, giving you  the space, freedom and opportunity to focus on growing your business.

Contracts and policies

Whatever the size of your business, when it comes to employment documentation, you have legal obligations. We tailor employment contracts, HR policies and employee handbooks to the specific needs of your business, reflecting the profile of your workforce, your most important issues and ensuring your legal obligations are met.

When faced with any situation you’ll know you have a procedure to follow together and guidance documentation, and can relax knowing you can manage the situation appropriately and legally.

Not sure if your policies and procedures are up to date? Our HRCheckup service is for small and medium-sized businesses and is free to those without in-house HR support.

Employment law

Each client, each business and each situation is entirely unique. We feel employers benefit most from practical advice that is tailored to their particular problem, rather than a restrictive approach to the law.

We do more than keep you legal. Whatever your particular employment situation is, we take a proactive approach to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Consultancy

All our consultants are experienced in finding practical solutions to the full range of people issues you may encounter, as well as guiding clients through a variety of proactive initiatives aimed at improving performance and making sure your business is a great place to work.

They regularly advise on the following issues:

Managing and improving employee performance
A high-performing team will add value to your business, earn you more clients, enhance morale, and make you the number one choice in your field.
Managing and improving employee performance can seem time-consuming but has an undeniable impact on your bottom line.
We provide template performance management forms, tailored to your specific requirements and advise on how to conduct a successful appraisal. In addition, we give advice on improving performance year-round, and help you deal with specific performance difficulties you may encounter.
Discipline and grievance
At some point all organisations have to contend with a grievance or disciplinary issue. We ensure the whole procedure is conducted within employment law requirements and our aim is to get you your desired result.
Once the process is over we provide practical advice on how to move on, helping the individuals concerned – and the business as a whole – learn from the experience, leading to better working relationships.
People management training
We  provide training for you and your team on any aspect of people management, developing the skills and knowledge to take your business and its people to the next level.
You may have someone who is new to being a manager, or a high performer who needs improved people management skills, and a period of coaching to ‘boost’ their skills could make all the difference to your business.
Training courses will be specifically tailored to your own requirements so please contact us to let us know what you need.
Recruitment
Finding the best person for the job can transform your business. But get it wrong and it can easily become costly. We guide you through the entire process from identifying exactly what you need through to ensuring your new employee’s first few months are productive and successful. We can also take responsibility for managing recruitment off your hands if you are finding this time-consuming and challenging.

Dismissal
Occasionally it is necessary to terminate someone’s employment. This is an area of employment law which we strongly recommend you do not attempt without taking professional advice. We guide you through the process ensuring that if you need to end someone’s employment you do so lawfully, minimising the risk of a disruptive and expensive dispute.
If you need to make redundancies or dismiss someone for other reasons, please drop us an email to [email protected] to find out how we can ensure you follow the required process and help you support your employees through a challenging time.
Absence management
Reduced levels of sickness absence mean increased productivity and profitability. We advise on how to record your absence, how to analyse it and how to address it.
If you feel you may have an absence problem with a particular individual, or if you would like to reduce overall absence levels in your company, we can help.
Employee benefits
Rewarding staff appropriately can have a significant impact on morale and on your bottom line. It’s not just about salary. There are a whole range of things you can do as an employer to ensure your staff feel valued and are motivated, whatever your budget.
