Procedure
Contracts of Employment

This is the first step to ensuring that you have the right legal footing in place to make sure that both you and your employee know what to expect from your employment relationship. We will tailor your contract and provide advice regarding clauses in your contract that may or may not be relevant to your company needs.

Employee Handbooks

An effective handbook will back up your employment contract, provide consistency and will ensure that your staff know what is expected of them.

Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures

It’s horrible when an employment relationship goes wrong. The best way to deal with it is to have a sound grievance and disciplinary policy and procedure in place. With our outsourced HR service we are on hand to help you through the potential pitfalls of the process, as well as being available as an independent third party to assist the proceedings if required. Dealing with a disciplinary issue in a small business can be very hard – and if it’s your own business it can become quite emotive too. We can take the emotion out of the situation for you and guide you through the process in a way that suits you and ensuring that you follow the correct procedure.

Absence Management

As a small/medium sized company you feel the impact on a greater scale when your staff are absent. Using an outsourced HR service will ensure that you have a sound absence policy and procedure. This will give you clear boundaries and help you to deal more effectively with this issue.

Employee Relations

This can be complicated, especially when you are emotionally involved. It helps to have an independent outsourced HR professional who is on hand when you need them to give you advice or even to use as a sounding board. Ensure that you develop your staff relationships, not hinder them. We will take time to understand your company values and culture to ensure that you receive the best possible advice.

HR Audit

Whether you’re looking for a full scale root and branch audit of all your HR functions, or just a quick look through your current employment contracts and staff handbook, we can help. A quick look through attracts no charge, however, a full scale audit with a report will be charged according to the size of your organization.

Recruitment

We are not a Recruitment Agency, however, we will tailor a recruitment package to suit your company’s needs, whether that be placing an advert and sending you the cv’s; shortlisting candidates for you; assisting you with your interviews and what questions you should be asking or working with an Agency to provide you with the complete recruitment package.

TUPE Transfers

Many people in small business often undergo TUPE transfers without realizing that they are doing it! We can give you practical advice on your situation and will also let you know when it is time to call in the solicitors!

Performance
Performance Management

Do you want more from your staff performance? A Performance Management system needn’t be complicated and, if done in the right way, can achieve incredible results and can increase the motivation of your staff – after all who wouldn’t want that?!

Job Descriptions

The purpose of having a job description is so that both you and your staff know and understand what you expect from them in their work. The contract lays out the basic terms and conditions, but the job description is a vital part of monitoring their performance. When used in conjunction with a regular performance review program it will help to steer you both in the right direction.

With an outsourced HR service you will have prompt assistance with creating a job description from scratch and reviewing your existing job descriptions. Plus, we will bring you experience and expertise that has been built up over the years across different industries.

We can take the emotion out of the situation for you and guide you through the process in a way that suits you. If it’s done correctly, then the ideal outcome is for you to have a better performing member of your team.

Development
Training and Development

We have developed seminars and workshops on employment issues such as The Employment Contract, Recruitment, Discipline and Attendance Management. However, if you’re looking for more detailed Training and Development then my partners McCrudden Training are more than able to help. They provide a wide range of courses to develop your staff and managers in a variety of different ways to ensure that your staff get the most out of the training that they attend.
