New year – New review

140109 Web Update - CopyA new year is often associated with new year’s resolutions and fresh starts.  If it has been a couple of years or more since your contracts and policies have been reviewed (or even if this has never happened), now is an excellent time for an audit.

Our bespoke auditing methodology provides a comprehensive approach to delivering commercial solutions for the management of people risk. This enables organisations to maximise the return on the investment in their workforce.  The benefits to the business include:

  • Establishing the effectiveness of HR processes, that is, the extent to which these processes support the business’s strategic plan.
  • Identifying areas where efficiency and effectiveness can be improved – leading to improved bottom line performance.
  • Minimising the financial and reputational risks associated with inadequate HR policies, processes and documentation.
  • Supporting businesses working towards quality accreditations and excellence awards e.g.ISO9001, Investors in People.
  • Giving owners/managers increased certainty and control and therefore greater confidence when managing their business.

Our bespoke auditing solution will be adapted to meet your specific business needs, from giving a lick of paint to contracts to a full audit of HR strategy, process and procedures.

Imagine a world ………..

Where Employers have at their fingertips every single piece of information in relation to employees that is current, relevant and accessible 24 hours per day, 365 days per year from anywhere in the world………

Where all contracts, policies and procedures are constantly updated to ensure that legal compliance and operational and strategic flexibility in relation to employees can be taken for granted……….

Where bespoke documents tailored to your organisation are readily available and at your fingertips…………….

Where Employers are automatically informed when absence levels become a cause for concern, where trends in absence are identified and addressed without delay…………

Where issues are addressed across the entire organisation with the consistency that proactively manages the risk of claims…………..

Where all managers and supervisors have the training and access to resources to enable them to confidently manage day to day employment situations…………

Where Employers have instant access to dedicated employment law solicitors who are acknowledged experts in their field………….

Where HR managers have access to on-line resources to support decision making, including laws in the pipeline and the outcomes of recent relevant cases at no extra cost………….

Where reactive spending on employment solicitors becomes a thing of the past……

Where peace of mind is a natural outcome…….
