HR Support

What is HR Support?

HR Support encompasses a wide range of services relating to the performance of people within an organisation. This covers the employment of full and part-time staff, as well as the need for and use of contract staff and workers. Our HR support covers all areas of employment relations including advice and guidance on employing people, managing performance and attendance, right through to strategic HR advice on areas like succession planning and career frameworks, including pay and reward.

Our hands-on approach to providing best advice means that we can deal with any problem swiftly and effectively, leaving you to focus on running your business. We are comfortable working at board level but equally competent in dealing with the day-to-day issues that arise in managing people. People are at the heart of your business, but issues that prevent you from successfully running your organisation need to be resolved efficiently with no long-term consequence, and this is where we can help.

What are benefits of HR Support?

In many organisations, the function of HR is often combined with other roles and as a result does not always get the attention it deserves. By using an external HR Consultant, we can free up the time, and in many cases, the financial pressures faced in managing people. Not only can we provide the guidance and hands-on support you require to get the best out of your people, our HR packages are designed to be tailored to suit every organisation’s needs. The added attraction is we do not tie you into a long-term, onerous contract.

What are types of HR Support?

We offer a wide range of HR Support from telephone and email advice through to providing a fully outsourced HR service to manage all your onsite and offsite requirements. We can help with project-based HR Support, whereby we step in and out of activity as dictated by you to deal specifically with a problem. This could include disciplinary and grievance matters, mediation, redundancies, restructures, and TUPE projects as well as bespoke training and development. We also offer a HR Buddying service, to help grow and develop your in-house HR so you can deal with more complex issues.

Who is HR Support best suited to?

Organisations will benefit greatly from HR Support that do not have a dedicated HR team or where an employee or team has responsibility for the organisation’s HR function as well as responsibility for another or several other roles. Irrespective of sector or industry, anyone employing people will know the challenges faced on a day-to-day basis.

Owner-managed businesses particularly benefit. Owners or senior leaders often feel isolated when having to deal with employee issues. The introduction of an independent HR Consultancy frees up their time, energy and removes the emotional shackles so that they can focus more time on improving the business’ performance.
