HR Consulting FAQs

  • What documents do I need to provide to my employees?

    You need to provide your employees with HR documentation such as employment contracts, an employee handbook, and make sure they’re familiar with all your business’ policies. These are all important documents for protecting your business. 

    Our HR consultants can work with you to create all of the documents you need, so you’re covered when it comes to HR.

  • How do I legally terminate an employee?

    You can legally terminate an employment contract by following the policies and procedures set out in the contract and other HR documents if the terms have been broken. 

    We know that every instance of this is different, and there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. This is why our HR consultants are there to provide you with the advice you need for each case.

  • How can HR help with employee engagement and retention?

    Effective HR management is key to improving employee engagement and retention. It can help you to provide the tools and training employees need to succeed in their roles, and recruit new talent to the business as well as retain employees. Much of this can come down to having solid HR policies and procedures, as well as solid employment contracts, proactive engagement strategies and open, honest communication.

  • How can HR help with talent management?

    HR is at the forefront of talent management. Your HR policies will set out effective recruitment procedures and decide how new talent is brought into the business, and your contracts can also play a key role in retaining key talent. This is why having effective HR documents is so important to all businesses. We also offer recruitment services as part of our HR support, so you can help grow your team successfully by getting the right people on board for your business.

  • How can HR help with employee development?

    HR can help with employee development by providing training for employees to help develop their skills. We make sorting out training for your employees easy with our online HR management hub, Atlas, where you can assign and track key HR e-learning courses.

  • What services do HR consultants provide?

    Partner with our HR consultancy and work with our team of expert consultants who will assist you with all of the following: 

    • Creating bespoke documentation: They’ll work with you to create your key documentation, from employee handbooks and contracts to bespoke policies.
    • Seamless software: You’ll gain instant access to our cloud-based software, Atlas, where you can manage holiday and sickness absences, employee data, and e-learning all in one place, as well as distribute documents like contracts with automated signature reminders.
    • 24/7 advice: Our consultants are available around the clock to support you with any questions – whether that’s a troublesome employee, employment law changes, or ideas to improve employee engagement. 
    • Defence against employment tribunal claims: As long as you follow our advice, our HR consultants will defend you against employment tribunal claims and pay any awards or agreed settlements up to an annual limit of £1.5 million.

    • On-site HR reviews: Our HR consultants will visit your premises to analyse your specific challenges and provide expert advice and training on tackling the trends in your business and sector.
  • Does my business need an HR consultant?

    HR consultants are not required by law. But if you’d like to save time, protect your business, and save money versus having an in-house HR resource, then our HR consultancy service is ideal for you. You can have the peace of mind your business is compliant and you have a qualified HR professional, solicitor or barrister to lean on whenever you need to.
