HR Advice & Guidance
HR Advice and Guidance comes in many shapes and sizes but in our view it should always:
- Be straightforward
- Clearly identify the pros and cons (risks and opportunities)
- Be consistent with your organisation’s culture
- Come with a clear recommendation
You may need some ad-hoc advice on a specific issue, such as:
- How to handle a flexible working request
- What to do if a member of your team announces at short notice that they are traveling abroad to visit family to deal with an emergency.
You may need advice on a broader issue that has HR implications, such as:
- A company restructure resulting in redundancies
- A new product launch that needs a sales team recruiting and a commission scheme designing
- A new business start-up that needs to ensure all the necessary foundations are in place to ensure compliance with your employer obligations.
Or you may want the comfort and assurance of having on-demand HR advice and guidance available whenever you need it. This is available through our HR Maintain and HR Develop packages.
Whatever you need, we have the experience and expertise to guide you through those tricky workplace situations, not only helping you to avoid problems and resolve conflict, but also plan and prepare on a proactive basis for growth and change in your organisation.
