Gloucestershire Business Show Business KitchenI provide straightforward and pragmatic HR advice as you need it so you can focus on growing your business. For smaller organisations, it's common not to have a Human Resources function and so this support can be provided on an ad hoc basis. For my fixed-rate clients I create a package tailored to their needs. Each year they can budget for my services safe in the knowledge that in addition to helping with longer term projects, I am essentially on-call to answer their queries and step in with additional support. In an ideal world the right staff would be hired every time and they would be happy, healthy assets to the business. Well, the best way to achieve that ideal is with appropriate planning and management, not hope. I also provide support on a case by case basis in the fields of recruiting, training and dispute resolution.

A good place to start is the basic building blocks of a HR Assessment - this means I'll go through what your business does with you, understand what people processes you might already have in place and flag up the areas where professional HR advice could help and add value. Think about it as being like an audit of your responsibilities, not unlike a stock check or annual accounts. So please get in touch to arrange a no obligation initial discussion.

I advise a varied range of clients on a wide range of HR matters including reviewing HR strategy and policies, apprenticeships, contracts of employment, pay, and coaching business leaders on dealing with dismissal and disciplinary situations.
