So why should I outsource my HR?
Employing people can be difficult at times and in this age of litigation it has never been more important than now to get it right first time. Getting your HR processes right avoids the risks of ending up with either disgruntled employees or at worst in a tribunal.
Whatever your business is, its core function is not HR. By outsourcing your HR to Douglas Tonks, you will be freed from the burden of keeping up with the latest legislation. So what do we offer?
Pragmatic HR advice by telephone
For a small monthly fee you can also have unlimited telephone HR advice from our qualified HR professionals. With a practical and pragmatic approach, we guide you through any employment issue from a disciplinary and grievance procedure to dealing with sickness absence. We support you throughout the process whether this is drafting appropriate letters to suggesting alternative courses of action. Just as crucially, we support you to manage your staff in the way your business needs. This can be as part of your payroll contract or a standalone service. Each customer’s contract is tailored to their own business needs not an off the shelf “one size fits all” approach
Ongoing HR support
Sometimes you’ll find that you need more complex or strategic projects which need greater levels of HR support which may need us to visit your organisation. We’re happy to quote on supporting you with:-
- Contracts of Employment
- Employee Handbooks and Policies
- Absence Management
- Disciplinary & Grievance including Mediation
Through our associates we can also help you source psychometric testing, organisational and personal development training, appraisal and assertiveness training.
In the case of an internal disputes (grievance or disciplinary) we can advise, provide Employer Support for internal hearings and provide mediation support. The earlier we know about the problem the better we can advise.
What we don’t do
Tell you how to run your business
Where advice is required for an Employment Tribunal claim we do not normally provide legal representation or any other claim management services but if you get to this stage we will pass you onto our specialist employment solicitors CLR Law who back up our advice.
