Fully Managed HR Support

Regular dedicated hands-on HR support for your business

If you choose to appoint me as your HR Manager I will:
  • Protect Your Business
  • Provide Peace of Mind
  • Recover Your Time
  • Improve Communication
  • Improve Recruitment Processes
  • Increase Productivity

You know your business. I know HR. Outsourcing your human resources to me allows you to focus on what you know best.

So if HR issues are taking up more and more of your time and you want to introduce a regular HR presence into your business, at the fraction of the cost of employing a HR Manager, then talk to me about my fully managed HR support service.

Regular, dedicated on-site support provides you with peace of mind that your business is protected whilst recovering your time and ensures employee issues are resolved quickly with minimum risk to your business.

Businesses who use this service do not have any internal HR expertise and generally have a headcount of between 50 and 150 employees. Some of those businesses have a HR Administrator who coordinates day to day activities and use me as an additional resource when something more complex happens.

Outsourcing your human resources to me allows you to focus on what you know best.

Features of Outsourcing Your HR Activities to Kea

Working as part of your management team I will understand your business goals and culture and will provide:

    • HR Strategy
      I will work with you to improve your HR processes and introduce an effective HR strategy with appropriate policies and procedures that will make your life easier, your business more effective and develop a consistent approach to HR procedures and decisions across the business. Ultimately that will free up you and your senior management team from being so involved in operational issues, enabling you to concentrate more fully on growing your business.
    • HR Action Plan
      We will have regular meetings to review your HR Action Plan and focus on ways to improve areas of risk within your business, for instance issues which will have a strategic, legal or employee relations impact, and make plans for achieving your medium to long term HR needs.
    • HR Policies and Contract of Employment
      Having legally compliant HR Policies and Contracts of Employment is vital to reduce risks in your business. I won’t force a set of pre-written HR Policies and Contracts of Employment on you, what I will do is review, update and maintain your existing employee handbook and ensure your suite of employment contracts protect your business. If you don’t have existing documents I will prepare bespoke ones for you. I will develop, implement and maintain a consistent approach to your HR related policies and procedures which will be based on employment legislation, best practice techniques and your HR practices, they will also support your business goals and objectives and increase employee engagement and retention. Once implemented I will coach your line managers in your HR processes.
    • Identify and Manage Poor Performers
      I will provide step by step advice to help you bring grievance and disciplinary matters to a satisfactory conclusion. I will also provide proactive advice to improve attendance and performance issues, and ensure you set appropriate objectives and find appropriate solutions. Where there are different courses of action available to you I will explain the different routes you could follow along with the consequences of each of those. To support the advice I provide I will draft bespoke letters and will provide guidance notes and flow charts detailing exactly what needs to be done, when it needs doing by and who is responsible for it (that might be me, you or another manager in your business).
    • Project Management
      I will play a key role and lead when necessary on project teams such as:

      • Planning and Implementing Restructuring Programmes
      • Recruiting and Inducting New Employees
      • Transferring Staff In and Out of Your Business
    • Management Training
      I will coach your line managers and run management training sessions to bring line managers up to speed with new or amended policies and procedures.
    • Regular On Site Visits
      Dedicated time for your business! Enabling strong connections and working relationships to be developed across all levels of the company. When you have a complex issue happening in your business that you are struggling to deal with alone I will be there to support you. My service would be tailored to provide the appropriate time on site to bring your short term goals to a satisfactory conclusion and put solid foundations in place for those medium and long term goals.
    • Advising Employees
      I will act as the first point of contact for employees over routine and complex HR processes such as absence reporting procedures, maternity and paternity leave and flexible working.

    I will keep you and your management team up to date with future developments in employment legislation that will have an impact on your business.

How The Kea Fully Managed HR Service Works

If your business is based in South Yorkshire, or the surrounding counties, I will act as your very own HR Manager and provide you with business critical employment law advice and HR management support across a wide range of staffing issues, leaving you free to focus on your core business activities.

This is your HR Department and you chose how it works, you can …

  • Outsource your entire HR function to me.
  • Outsource HR Management to me but keep day to day HR Administration as an internal function.

Who uses the Fully Managed HR Support service?

  • Owners of growing businesses, generally with 50+ employees with no internal HR expertise.
  • HR Administrators and junior level HR Professionals in stand alone roles who want hands on support with the more complex HR matters that crop up from time to time.

How Much Does The Service Cost?

I firmly believe that one size doesn’t fit all and will provide a service that is customised to meet your requirements and budget.

If you are interested in appointing me as your HR Manager we will need to have a conversation first so I can find out where you are now and where you want to be. Once I’m clear about your short, medium and long term HR goals I will provide you with an HR Action Plan that will indicate the number of hours of on-site support that will be required to bring your short term goals to a satisfactory conclusion and put solid foundations in place for those medium and long term goals. I might suggest spending a few hours every week with you or may be as little as a day a month. The final decision is yours, this is your HR Department and you choose how it works!

Over time your HR requirements will change, new priorities will emerge and sometimes there may not be very much on your HR agenda. These fluctuations will be reflected in the fees you pay.

What I actually end up working on is entirely up to you and your present circumstances. That’s the great thing about a tailored service, there’s no fixed agenda to squeeze you into! You are an individual and your goals and aspirations for your business are unique to you and will change, sometimes with little notice. I have much to share with you but not all of it may be relevant and you will want me to focus on where I can make the biggest difference in your business.
