Attracting and retaining top talent that will drive your business forward is a high priority for any business looking to grow.
Employee turnover is a costly challenge, so creating an appealing workplace culture and offering opportunities for development can be key to establishing a motivated and dedicated workforce.
We can point you in the right direction for HR, people and skills support. Whether you’re a small business looking for HR support or a startup wanting to recruit an employee, our experts can provide you with the help and advice you need.
We provide advice and support on:
● Recruitment and expanding your workforce
Information and guidance to support you to employ someone to work for you.
● Employee training and development
Providing skills support for employees to train and develop their workforce is key to retaining talent and nurturing business growth.
● Employee rights and responsibilities
Employees of a company or individual are entitled to statutory employment rights at work – make sure you know what they are.
● Your legal obligations
Some HR policies are required by law, even for small businesses. Having a well-developed and clearly written HR policy creates a positive work culture and minimises legal risk.
Certain aspects of HR can be a daunting prospect for businesses, with serious consequences for getting things wrong.
Developing the skills and knowledge required to handle things properly takes time – so whether you’re starting a new business or growing an existing one and facing new personnel challenges, make sure you’re getting the right support and advice.
