What could you do with less stress and more hours in your day?
As the owner of a small business there will be occasions when you need extra help managing your employees.
Outsourcing some of your HR responsibilities to a qualified HR professional can help you to concentrate on what you do best – leading your small business to achieve positive results.
If you are a business owner, time is your most precious resource. You are busy growing your business and every second counts. Sometimes you are pulled in so many different directions you feel like you are not giving some activities your full attention. That’s when pieces of your business fall through the cracks, causing you even more stress!
As a business owner your primary concern will be revenue generating activities and deciding how to structure your business, then recruiting the right people into the right jobs at the right time are intensive time consuming tasks that take you away from running your business. It doesn’t stop there though as once you start employing people you not only have to keep on top of new employment legislation but you have to decide how to correctly interpret that legislation in the day to day operations of your business!
Whether you employ one person or 100 you will come up against employee issues. If you are the HR hat wearer in your business but have no formal HR training then you will no doubt be spending a significant amount of your time fire fighting employee issues and worrying about the decisions you have to make.
If you are spending a significant proportion of your time on non-revenue generating activities such as HR Management then it may be time to consider outsourcing part or all of your HR responsibilities to an expert so that you can focus on your core business activities.
I practice what I preach! As the owner of a small business myself I focus on the work that I am passionate about and outsource all the other stuff that I’m not so keen on.

|May Bank Holiday 2020 Moved To Coincide With VE Day 75th Anniversary||Common Recruitment Mistakes And How To Avoid Them||Holiday Entitlement and Pay for Term-time Only Workers|
The Early May Bank Holiday in 2020 will move in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
It means the May day bank holiday will fall on Friday 8th May instead of Monday 4th to form part of a three day weekend commemorating Allies accepting the surrender of Nazi Germany in the Second World War.
Whatever reason you have for recruiting a new employee, pressures on time and budgets can make it tempting to cut corners. But it makes sense to get the best person you possibly can and if you are going to achieve that goal you will need to know what skills and characteristics you require and have a plan on how you will find them.
Over the years, I’ve seen the same mistakes made over and over again. Those mistakes cost the businesses that make them time and money, so it makes sense to avoid them!
Should holiday entitlement and pay for ‘part-year’ workers (e.g. Term-time Only Workers) be calculated on a pro rata basis?
No, held the Court of Appeal in The Harpur Trust v Brazel.
The Court of Appeal said that these workers must receive at least 5.6 weeks holiday entitlement even if they only work part of the year.
By outsourcing your HR responsibilities to me you will be free to manage your business.
