HR Foundations

We have developed a simple model of HR support for organisations who want a basic level of HR compliance in place.

It may not be the right time for them to embark on our HR cultural transformation options – they simply want to know that the basics are all in place and are regularly monitored independently, to check ongoing compliance.  

Our HR foundations package provides for that.  

In our experience, HR processes are often characterised by lengthy, boring bureaucratic handbooks that are difficult for employees to absorb and difficult for managers to apply.  They are often issued as a ‘tick box’ process to demonstrate compliance but are seldom understood in practice.  

We have written our materials in very simple, user-friendly terms, so that they explain clearly the expectations as an employer, as well as the obligations for each employee.

We believe that achieving compliance arrives when employees have a deeper understanding of the expectations and standards of any organisation.  The documentation has to be accompanied by an active process of communication and dialogue in order to explain the issues, rather than an arbitrary ‘tick box’ sign off, typically completed on day one of an induction overview but then rarely, if ever, revisited.      

Our HR Foundations package provides all of your core HR documentation, tailored for your unique circumstances as a business. 

Although we are dealing with the need to ensure HR compliance, we feel there are creative ways to make the process more engaging and positive for all concerned.  

We are able to provide a range of Contracts of Employments, Guidelines for Working within the Business (what we call the Employee Handbook) and HR Implementation Guides so that the Manager is able to explain, with confidence, the documentation being issued and what this means for the individual in practice.  In doing so, we begin to strengthen the employee experience and commitment.

Our HR Foundations package also includes a comprehensive annual HR review.  This holistic approach provides added assurance that different HR considerations are being proactively managed within your business and highlights any areas of potential risk or opportunity that might arise.  

For added peace of mind, you can also utilise our HR helpdesk facility for expert professional HR advice to cover specific circumstances as they arise on an ongoing basis.
