HR Advice for Employers
RiverLeigh HR Consulting provides outsourced, up to date HR advice and support for employers. The main objective is to provide employer-focused advice so that you can get the best performance out of your staff.
A few simple questions can help you quickly decide if your business needs HR advice:
- • Do you understand fully the complexities of current Employment Law?
- • Do you know the correct way to carry out recruitment, discipline, absence management, grievances, performance management, redundancy or other termination of employment situations in such a way that your workforce does not take action against your business?
- • If not, you may be putting yourself and your business at risk.
The aim is to let you concentrate on running your business. But keeping up to date with employment law, regulations and staff performance management IS your business. You could find yourself making a costly mistake if you ignore these important elements. Employment law is becoming increasingly complex and costs associated with it are rising. Having access to HR advice helps to protect your business by providing Employment Law and HR support on a very affordable basis. As businesses grow, the number of times that HR advice is required increases, however most companies are simply not able to afford the employment costs of a completely qualified HR person.
