I can help you with individual issues as outlined in the other pages of this site. You may however require an overview of all of your HR policies and procedures and how these fit together into a strategy.
Pay & Benefits
Disciplinary & Grievances
For smaller organisations, it's unusual to have a Human Resources function, so I provide this support as an outsourced service 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 an HR Assessment.
This means I'll go through what your business does for 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.
With many years' experience managing at a senior HR level, I can help you develop your people strategy and ensure it aligns with your business strategy.
You will have read lots of articles telling you that people are your greatest asset. Well they can be if they are seen as an asset and not a cost. I really believe that if you treat your staff like customers then you will see a return on your investment in them. Happy staff mean happy customers!
You might also be interested in exploring your employer brand and how this supports or detracts from your business strategy.
Please get in touch for an initial, no obligation discussion.
