Our HR Consultants are experts in managing and advising on a whole range of employment contractual processes. They aim to minimise risk and advise your business through difficult times.

Access to HR advice and guidance is essential for businesses whether it’s focused on employee relations issues, policies, restructure including redundancy, or other employee issues, such as absence, sickness and wellbeing.

So, if you are facing a disciplinary matter or have questions that need answering call Westcountry HR.

Our team provide clear, precise HR advice to assist with any employee conflicts and protect you from further actions.

HR CONSULTANCY

When do you need a HR consultant?

As a general rule of thumb, when your people admin processes start to slow down the productivity of your business. For example are you spending too much time dealing with staff lateness? Or catching up on paperwork after office hours? Do you feel anxious due to staff performance issues or conduct? If you feel that any of the above apply to you then it’s time to consider outsourcing to a HR Consultant like Westcountry HR.

We start with a FREE HR Healthcheck which are independent and impartial. Our Healthchecks give you a comprehensive review of your HR practices and procedures helping you reduce risk and cost, improve performance, and reveal where HR can add value to your business.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT

Did you know that it is unlawful for an employee to work for you without a contract of employment?

Should you fail to fulfil the legal requirement to provide your employee with a written statement (a contract of employment) then, an Employment Tribunal can penalise you for non-compliance. Your employee could be awarded between two to four weeks’ pay as compensation. There are also several statements that by law have to be included in an employment contract.

One of our most used HR Services is our employment contract packages. We ensure all contracts meet legal requirements giving you protection from potential non-compliance charges. As well as ensuring a smooth on-boarding process for your new employee. 

EMPLOYEE HANDBOOKS

Having an Employee Handbook containing all your HR policies is an essential tool for any business either new or established.

An employee handbook is a great place to store all your ‘rules and regulations’ or ‘do’s and don’ts’ as we at Westcountry HR like to call them.  They will clearly explain all your policies and procedures from the perspective of employment law in a clear and easy manner. It ensures that your employees understand the standards you expect of them. As well as how you’ll deal with standards not being met.

Be assured we will never leave you alone to deal with an issue. Our employees have achieved the highest level of accreditations with the Institute of Personnel Management so you know you can trust the advice that is given to you. Find out more about this HR Service today.
