HR Helpline Service

Asking questions as soon as issues arise will assist with the smooth running of your business.

I provide practical human resources advice in answer to your questions as well as offering step by step solutions to your everyday employee problems. As a member of the HR Helpline Service you also receive discounts for updating your employment contracts and employee handbooks.

As a member of my HR Helpline Service you will receive:

  • Peace of Mind

    Receiving tailored, quality HR advice when you need it will enable you to confidently deal with the HR issues you face on a daily basis. Plus, you won’t have to spend hours searching the internet for information that when you find it you can’t really be sure whether it’s legally compliant.

  • Dedicated Point of Contact

    You will always talk to me so you won’t waste your precious time explaining the background to a situation every time you call. I will get to know you, your business and your employees, this knowledge will help me deliver an effective solution to you every time you contact me and that regular contact between us will help me to pick up on issues at an early stage, making them easier and quicker to resolve!

  • Unlimited Remote Advice

    Unlimited remote advice in the 12 months from the date you join the service. There are no restrictions on how frequently you contact me, so every time you have a question or concern regarding an employee or group of employees you get in touch with me, via email or phone, and you will receive confidential, quality HR and employment law advice, which is in line with legislation and best practice. I will also translate all that technical stuff into a solution that suits the needs of your business. I respond quickly too, if something is happening in your business you need a solution today, not tomorrow or next week.

    Quick and Practical Answers To Your Questions

    When you have a question about the application of a HR policy or how to handle a HR situation that is happening in your business I will talk through what is happening with you and will provide a practical and legally compliant solution. You will always talk to me, there’s no call centre or scripts here and if you need to call back you don’t need to start right back at the beginning! I respond quickly too, if something is happening in your business you need a solution today not tomorrow or next week.

    Range of Solutions

    If you choose to work with me you’ll find I won’t baffle you with legal jargon nor will I sit on the fence by delivering a zero risk approach. Whatever HR situation you are facing I will probably have seen it before and will provide a straightforward explanation of the range of options available to you and will explain any risks associated with those options. You are then able to make a decision that is right for your business.

    Step by Step Guidance

    I like breaking down processes into simple steps and my easy to follow flow charts, meeting scripts and checklists will ensure everything is done efficiently and compliantly in a professional, friendly and knowledgeable way. Having the whole process presented this way, rather drip fed to you, means you have the whole picture laid out clearly to you as a series of actions right from the very beginning. I will also provide letters to ensure that are able to implement the advice I have provided.

    Follow Up

    I will follow up the advice with an email confirming the discussion(s) and will attach any documents, such as letters and checklists for meetings, from my library which you will enable you to implement the advice.

  • Responses Within 1 Working Day

    A response to your query within one working day. I appreciate how difficult it is to discuss, listen and take notes at the same time, so always provide you with written confirmation of my advice, so that you have a step by step process to follow along with all the letters, forms or meeting scripts you will need to implement the process.

  • Employment Law Updates

    Full briefings on the impact changes in legislation may have on your business. I don’t just tell you what is happening though, I will support this by recommending appropriate action. This will save your time researching HR processes and legislation.

On-site hours can be purchased when required at the discounted rate of £60 per hour.
