HR Essentials

When we say HR essentials, we mean just that. The must-have policies and practices that you need to meet your minimum obligations as an employer, without tying you up with red tape.

First we carry out a health check to identify any weaknesses or gaps in what you’re doing, then we’ll simply help put in place the solutions. And we’ll also ensure you don’t have to call us every two minutes for help, by giving you the tools you need to manage most basic HR requirements yourself.

After all, enthusiastic, motivated people far out-perform the average employee, and getting the HR basics right underpins this.

We won’t push a ‘one-size-fits-all solution’. We tailor solutions to your unique needs, whether you are an established business wanting to review compliance and good practice, or a new business venture wanting to get it right first time.

Conflicts & Disputes

The situation that every business owner dreads; a disagreement that has escalated to a point that it becomes a real dispute, requiring a significant level of resource and delicate management to resolve. When things have reached this stage, there really is a good argument for bringing in professional help…

Recruitment

Hiring the wrong person, or having them leave after a short period of time, is a costly mistake.  So, investing in a little support to ensure robust selection and on-boarding processes are in place is well worth doing…
