And, I have not forgotten my Micro clients:

HR Micro Compliance in a Box

faviconSometimes my clients just have just one or two employees.  And whilst all the above would be ideal, budgets are tight and they are just keen initially to ensure their legal compliance with Section 1 of the Employment Rights Act (avoiding the costly fine of £1,800 per employee).

Therefore this HR resource is formulated to meet these initial legal compliance needs.

All designed to align to the full resources offered in our  HR Compliance in a Box, so small businesses can build the policies procedures and documentation they need over time – when they are ready. Or perhaps use the HR Retainer Service below to slowly build the required documentation over time.

The HR Annual Retainer Service

HR-Support-Banner2Once business management foundations are compliant, clients have often asked me for a cost effective continuous HR Support Service.

First,  to ensure they stayed compliant with ever changing employment and health and safety law.

And then, to have direct easy access to Senior advisor to help them resolve workforce issues as they happen. Or to be there to give a little extra support as needed within their business.

And, someone to keep them up to date with forthcoming legal changes, so they can prepare their business for the change.

I  therefore developed our HR Annual Retainer Service to meet these  needs.
