We generally work on a retainer basis and as part of that service, when a client engages us we go into the business and carry out an initial ‘HR Health-check’, which looks at all the HR related policies, systems, processes and procedures that the company has in place.
Some clients have nothing at all, others have contracts that were written years ago, others are up to date but want us to review them in any case. We can work from any point in this regard!
Off the back of the health check we then produce bespoke contract of employment templates (sometimes there is a requirement for more than one type e.g. zero hour contracts, annualised hours contracts), a bespoke employee handbook and provide various other systems and procedures to promote not only HR compliance, but also best practice in the business.
We then take ownership of those documents and keep them updated with changes not only in legislation, but also case law and in line with lessons learnt from other clients.
In addition, at the health check we also look to address any current issues that you may have with members of staff.
