With a proactive approach to Human Resources our aim is to help you prevent unnecessary conduct or performance issues arising among your staff.  We do this by supporting your line managers, giving them the confidence and ability to manage situations correctly and compliantly.

Our Gold support service effectively provides you with your own HR team.  Your staff will receive up to date terms and conditions (where necessary) and we will produce a bespoke Company Handbook.  Subsequently you will be supported throughout the entire employee lifecycle.  We will administer your personnel files via our cloud-based software solution which also enables your staff to request holidays online and for you to monitor such things as absences and to initiate an online appraisal system.  Further to this we will be on hand for telephone/email advice 5 days a week (9am-5.30pm), 52 weeks a year.  We will also provide the relevant documentation to support our advice, fully completed with the information specific to the matter at hand.
