Is your HR Fit for purpose?
Have you experienced a difficult staffing situation that could have been nipped in the bud with some experienced HR advice? An HR Consultant can help you to avoid those types of situations going forward.
Do you need a plan for managing performance in your team? Do you not know where to start to introduce some consistency? Are poor performers slipping through the net? Do your staff have the opportunity to ask you for training or guidance on how to progress in their roles?
Audit & compliance
Are your contracts of employment up to date? Do you have an employee handbook or essential policies? I can guide you by reviewing what you have, updating as required and advising you on new policies you might need.
Do you have managers who need development to make them more reflective and effective leaders? I can assess the needs of your employees and can coach them in the areas where they are least effective. Improvements can benefit the organisation, the team, and the individual manager.
Are you trying to avoid an employment tribunal and need help with an issue between you and one of your employees for example? I am a qualified mediator and can assist you as an impartial third party to try and find a solution. This can help to resolve disagreements in a less formal way and it can be flexible to suit the parties involved.
