Your people are the most important part of your business but managing them well can be difficult and challenging in many ways. Fairness and consistency is key and as a small business you may not have the time or resources to focus on HR issues. Policies and procedures can help protect your business against legal claims, help you comply with legislation, support your strategy and create a consistent ‘best practice’ approach as your business grows.

  • Review and / or formulation of policies and procedures in line with your business requirements
  • Template documentation tailored to fit your business
  • Review and / or creation of employee handbooks


Bearing in mind the legislative changes that have been introduced over recent years, are you compliant with GDPR and do your employees have the right to work?

One-off initial assessment to understand your organisation’s current HR status following which a report will be issued detailing this together with recommendations, if required, and appropriate next steps.

This would preferably be an in-depth audit carried out on your site over a period of up to two weeks (costs to be agreed) alternatively you can complete an on-line ‘temperature check’ questionnaire.
