So you are probably aware that we can help you with, recruitment, employment policies, payroll, sick pay and benefits. We act as almost a third party between employees and managers.
People often assume that it’s only larger companies that need or benefit from HR teams, but actually SMEs (small to medium sized enterprises) benefit and require a HR professional just as much. However, SME’s can not always afford to bring in a permanent HR professional, and that is where we come in.
The aspects often missed when it comes to HR are the constant liaison with senior management to develop strategies for growth and development of the business and the employees. We would also look after any staff training that would need to be implemented to ensure your business is running as efficiently as possible.
Businesses vary as no two companies are the same, however here are some good indicators;
Employment law is constantly changing and rightfully so, as we are adapting our businesses to the 21st century. However, for SME’s this is often hard to keep up with especially if you are not sure on where to look for the changes.
Staff disagreements, long term sickness, Gross misconduct and general disciplinaries.
Expansion is a great sign for businesses as it means generally there has been considerable growth with its customer base. However it comes with its risks if not correctly managed.
It’s a costly process and a large investment to hire and train staff, so we do not want them to leave, especially within the first year of employment. Plus, a high turnover this also has a negative effect on employees that stay with the company.
