What I Do
I make HR easy for small business owners like you who are facing staff problems for the first time and are struggling to implement rules, procedures and deal with the general difficulties that come with managing staff as your business grows. I help you to go about managing your business safe in the knowledge that your HR is taken care of.
My mission is to make HR easy for business owners who just want to “get on with running their business”.
I want to empower you to understand HR, so you have the confidence to engage and manage your staff, helping your business to thrive.
You might not know where to start with HR in your business, but I do!
I passionately believe that good HR is not just for large businesses, it is for every business no matter how small, unique or niche whether you have one employee or one thousand, you deserve good HR.
More than anything I believe that the best HR is informal HR, where business owners and managers talk to their staff on a daily basis. When wins are celebrated and losses are seen as a learning opportunity not a failure.
However, there are times when businesses need to turn to more formal HR techniques e.g. managing probation, dealing with a grievance allegation, investigating a disciplinary case, issuing a formal warning.
I want to empower you to have the confidence to use formal HR when necessary without being afraid or uncertain. I want to ensure that you know exactly what to do, what documents you need, be aware in advance of the potential challenges that may arise and be ready to manage your HR with the same confidence you sell your favourite product to your customers.
I will explain every term and clause in simple English and not complicated legal speak. I won’t hide behind jargon, I am there by your side. I am honest and as your HR Business Partner I will tell you exactly what I would do in the difficult staff situations you have to face and to make it easy I can even give you a script if that is what you need.
I can help you to develop a HR strategy and plan so that your business is focusing on the right HR policies and practices to engage with your staff and retain key talent. An engaged workforce is a happy one.
I create bespoke training packages on all aspects of HR – from complete beginner through to experienced people managers wanting to improve their skills.
Obviously I do all the “normal HR stuff” you would expect to make life easier for small business owners so that means I help with drafting staff contracts, policies, procedures and formal staff letters. I can work behind the scenes, I can sit beside you at the meeting table or if needs be I can be out front doing it all letting you get on with running your business. I make HR easy.
If you need help in understanding the basics of being a first time employer, or are facing your first disciplinary case or want to upskill your managers in dealing with challenging staff issues like under-performance or absence management – then call me today. Let me make HR easy for you and your business.
I provide a select list of clients with one to one HR consultancy services. I help my clients across many HR issues and these range from special projects, such as a business transfer requiring TUPE implementation, restructure and redundancy, through to more common activities such as executive recruitment, disciplinary & grievance case management and performance management. Your HR Business Partner is waiting, why are you?
I can help ensure your business is dealing with the “critical conversation” and “conflict” / difficult situations effectively and help managers who require support in dealing with staff responsibilities. I can create a bespoke training session for managers based on your own in-house policies for managing difficult situations. This session would be tailored to the needs of those managers present. If you know you and your team need some HR training then this is the option for you.
Are you a small business owner who has just expanded your team? Then this is for you because you will need staff contracts, policies and procedures for your lovely first employee. It is also a perfect solution if you are more experienced business owner but you have old, outdated contracts or maybe a long time ago you just copied someone else’s (it happens its okay!) and finally want to put your own stamp on this important part of your business.
A legacy from my old business I have kept the much loved ready to use downloadable HR documents & templates. I created these for the small business owner who is not ready to commit to a HR Consultant but who knows they need help with their HR and want to look professional when sending letters. Grouped together in topic bundles I am confident that you will find what you need in my portfolio of ready to use HR made easy document bundles.
For the smart business owner who has their staff contracts in place but who knows there is so much more they could be doing with the HR side of their business. You want to understand more about managing performance, about dealing with staff conflict with confidence and the peace of mind that the letters you need to send have been drafted by a chartered professional with 20years experience… HRHQ is for you.
