We offer a range of deliverables covering the broad spectrum of Human Resources.
Recruitment can be a very costly exercise, so it’s important to get it right first time. From one-off needs, such as recruitment campaign management for your executive level hires, to contract or interim roles and your more unusual vacancies, we can help you get the right person into your role in the most cost-effective way. We can assist with everything from job descriptions and selection criteria, to interviewing, individual candidate testing tools, fully tailored assessment centre programmes, job offers and induction training, as well as new starter actions. We also work with qualified psychometric profiling experts to enable your company to get the right values and characteristic traits for your key positions and new hires.
Furthermore, whether you’re an Apprenticeship levy payer or not, we can help guide you through the complexities of Apprenticeship schemes to get the best outcome for you and your team members.
embraceHR work with you to provide the tools to effectively monitor, review and reward the performance of your team, from performance development, appraisal systems, objective setting and key performance indicators (KPI) metrics, to reward and benefit review and even team building events. We help you to make it clear what needs to be achieved and what standards need to be met, including behaviour and conduct standards. Sometimes however, performance management leads to the end of the employer/employee relationship and we can assist you with step by step performance capability or ‘without prejudice’ conversations. We will give you our objective advice as to the best route to follow for your business and your teams.
Absence costs money. Frequent unplanned absence can create significant impact and disruption for your business and other team members. embraceHR can assist you to effectively manage complex and costly absence and capability cases - whether you have a worker that you suspect may be taking advantage, or a member of your team who has a genuine health condition that you are finding difficult to manage, we can help you take the necessary steps to reach a fair outcome. We can also help you to manage other types of absence (holiday leave, maternity, paternity, dependant and adoption leave, compassionate leave, jury service, and so on) in the best possible way.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to protect the 'health, safety and welfare' at work of all their employees, as well as others on their premises, including temps, casual or freelance workers, clients, visitors and the general public 'so far as is reasonably practicable'. The Act also talks about an employer’s ‘duty of care’ towards its members of staff. But what do these things actually mean? We can help you find a common-sense approach suitable to your size and type of organisation. We can also assist in identifying the key risks and the steps you need to take to mitigate them. Alongside this, we work with experienced and qualified healthcare practitioners in areas of wellbeing, mental health and occupational health to provide a fully tailored service for your workplace.
GDPR (General Data Protection Guidelines) created headline news and a flurry of activity around May 2018, but have you implemented enough policy, process and accompanying documentation to protect your business and be able to answer questions and requests from customers, suppliers and employees? And of course, embraceHR manage confidentiality sensitively and professionally in all of our dealings.
Need assistance with transition or change management as a result of a merger, acquisition or other business change event? Change can be unsettling, so allow us to help you to manage and embed this process in your organisation successfully.
Sadly, sometimes there is a need for a restructure or a redundancy situation. We can provide comprehensive advice and support with everything from TUPE transfers (the employment legislation that usually applies during business mergers, acquisitions, change of ownerships or service provisions) to CV coaching for exiting members of your team.
Do you need assistance for a specific project or need advice in a particular area? For example, mental health & wellbeing, specialist help in areas such as drug & alcohol awareness or safeguarding, new business start-up packages, health surveillance, psychometric profiling, and so on. Talk to us to see how we or one of our strategic partners can work with you.
