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.

I will prepare and maintain a bespoke employee handbook and suite of employment contracts to suit your circumstances.

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 for the management of 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 you need to do and when you need to do it.

How The Kea Fully Managed HR Service Works
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.
What we actually end up working on together 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 in to! You are an individual and your goals and aspirations for your business are unique to you. I have much to share with you but not all of it may be relevant and you need me to focus on where I can make the biggest difference in your business right now, don’t you?
Whatever is on your HR Agenda we can work out what the priorities are and put together a clear action plan to get working on.
Who Uses The Service
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?
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.
I firmly believe that one size doesn’t fit all so if you are interested in appointing me as your HR Manager I will meet with you to discuss 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. That could mean I spend a few hours every week with you or may be as little as a day a month. 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.
You have a number of urgent HR priorities which we agree will take 4 days of on-site support to bring them to a satisfactory conclusion. I could work with you for 1 day per fortnight initially and then reduce my site visits to 1 day per month for the following 10 months. The annual fee would be £3,500 which could be paid by monthly or quarterly direct debit.
Whatever form your HR Action Plan takes I will be here to provide dedicated HR support to you and your business when you need me.
