In addition to our training and development programmes and employment law advisory services, we also offer a range of practical HR and employment law support options priced competitively and at fixed cost.
We are happy to discuss any HR or employment related project and rather than prescribe a ‘packaged’ option, we work closely with you to build and deliver a project to meet your specific business needs. However, to provide a flavour of the work we do, here are a few examples of the most frequent types of HR and employment law projects which we are asked to deliver:
Recruitment and Selection
Whether you require full or partial support to attract and select the best talent, we can partner you to conduct any of the following: advertising, development of job descriptions, person specifications and application forms, response handling, equal opportunities monitoring, design and implementation of interview and selection techniques, competency based interviewing, psychometric testing, occupational personality profiling, offering, referencing and providing contracts of employment. We will also help you to ensure that recruitment and selection processes are fully compliant with discrimination legislation and reflect best practice. We are also able to conduct senior level director and trustee resourcing.
Looking after your recruits from Day 1, we can design, and if desired, assist in the implementation of legally robust and best in breed induction processes.
Optimal performance in roles can be encouraged and monitored through working with you to develop a suite of tailored and business focused performance appraisal documents.
Long and short term absence is costly for all businesses and the need to manage this effectively, whilst remaining on the right side of disability discrimination legislation, can be a challenge for any business. We can proactively help by reviewing current absence records/trends and by suggesting appropriate process enhancements or trigger systems to flag issues at an early stage. We can also advise on disability discrimination compliance and capability procedure development.
Ensuring that people are paid and recognised appropriately, fairly and competitively within budget constraints is a primary concern for most businesses. We have considerable experience in advising upon salary structure development and review, job evaluation system selection and implementation, including the carrying out of comprehensive job analyses. We are also experienced in conducting external salary and benefit benchmarking and sector/job specific analysis. We also advise on performance bonuses, equal pay and other equality issues.
Employee Relations and Change Management
Managing change, downsizing, merging, taking over other businesses or restructuring, can be a particularly challenging set of circumstances for any business. We are at hand to ease this process should you require on-site assistance with redundancy handling, informing and consulting individually and collectively, union recognition and relationship management and change management processes.
HR Support with Hearings and Investigations
If appropriate, we can also provide professional HR support to conduct in-depth investigations, interview witnesses and produce preliminary investigative reports or to provide hands-on support to conduct disciplinary or grievance hearings and appeals, ensuring that robust procedures are adhered to and thorough notes made.
We are experienced in assisting with equal pay reviews, equality scheme development and review. We can also advise upon the impact of Equal Pay legislation and Gender Pay audit requirements.
We are able to provide a number of bespoke surveys, whether run for one client or for a group of similar organisations who wish to use us to ensure that the results are fed into an independent third party and information analysed and shared in a confidential way. Some examples of survey work which can be undertaken are: terms and conditions reviews, employee engagement and client or employee satisfaction surveys.
