Sickness absence is a major cost to your business. We will help you manage short, intermittent, and long-term sickness absence and help you control these costs. We will support you with processes to handle return to work, mental health conditions, medical referrals, and training for you in dealing with sickness absence.
Restructuring your business is challenging and requires careful planning. We will help you manage restructuring and redundancy programmes of all sizes from 1 individual to a collective process involving 20 or more employees. We will provide you with a legally compliant process and a robust communication plan to ensure your employees are treated fairly and with dignity.
Every employee should receive a statement of their main terms and conditions on the day they start with you. We can provide a fully compliant Contract of Employment to ensure you meet your legal obligations. We do this by either reviewing and updating your existing employment contracts or creating new ones to suit your business, either Permanent, Temporary, Fixed term or Zero hours.
HR Policies help promote consistency, fairness, and legal compliance. We can provide you with stand-alone policy documents or incorporate policies within your employee handbook. We will support you by reviewing and revising your existing documents or providing you with new, fully compliant policies, tailored to you. We will keep you up to date as Employment Law changes and ensure you remain ahead of the game.
You are required to have documented disciplinary and grievance procedures setting out your process for dealing with employment issues. The risk of Employment Tribunal claims can be reduced significantly where employers have followed a fair and reasonable process to manage disciplinary and grievance issues. We can conduct investigations, hearings and provide support and advice for you throughout the process.
Recruitment and selection is the first stage of the employment process and is often time consuming and frustrating. Selecting the best candidate is critical to your success. We can support you with the tools and processes you need to select the best candidates, including job descriptions, interview preparation, along with screening, testing and assessment of your applicants.
The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (referred to as “TUPE”) is the main piece of employment protection legislation governing the transfer of businesses or service provisions from one business to another. We will guide you through this process, minimising the disruption to your business and avoiding any financial and reputational damage.
Your employees will perform better when they know what is expected of them, receive regular feedback on their performance and have clear objectives. We can provide practical employee review and 2-way feedback processes and support you in implementing them. We will also support you with succession planning, competency frameworks and management of poor performance.
Employees are a vital asset and will perform at their best when they are engaged, committed and motivated. Employee engagement is based on trust, integrity and clear, concise communication. Engaged employees will become brand advocates for your business. We can support you in devising a communication strategy, a tailored reward package and a consultation process giving your employees more involvement in decision making.
You and your managers need the skills to get the best from your employees. We will support you by developing those skills and giving you and your team more confidence in dealing with employee issues. Managing conflict, performance management, discipline and grievance and developing a team are key areas we can support you with.
