HR and Employment
When resources are tight, we help organisations stay productive by taking care of day-to-day employee relations and general HR services that can be a distraction for HR teams. We also deliver a range of consultancy services that give clients cost effective answers to more strategic projects.
In a rapidly changing housing landscape, your HR function needs to be flexible and responsive. Initiatives can pile up without sufficient resource to fund them. Day to day, your HR team can get bogged down in time consuming and costly grievances or in trying to reach ever more demanding targets. Investigations, organisational change and pay/reward are typical pressure points.
Whether we outsource your employee relations or work with you on a specific project, you have the reassurance of working with consultants who come from a housing background. They understand the culture and get to grips with problems quickly and efficiently. They know HR and the Social Housing culture.
In sensitive areas such as disciplinary issues, bullying or grievances, we have the advantage of sitting next to a hugely knowledgeable team of employment lawyers who steer our advice with sound legal opinion. As well as freeing up your team to concentrate on developing staff, we’re able to nip problems in the bud and save legal expenses.
Our service allows you to package up more significant projects in ways that become more cost effective. And as independent advisers we bring objectivity and experience of issues in similar organisations. We can tackle virtually anything from investigations, through mergers, change management and pay reviews. We have an established HR service in the health sector which also adds to our experience in learning from other sectors.
Our services include:
- Change management
- Mergers/Tupe advice
- Pay reviews
- Interim management
- Innovative induction programmes
- Employment tribunals
