It’s all about your business

We advise businesses of all sizes from start-ups, SME’s to larger companies.

While the general obligations on any employer will largely be similar, we do not have a “one size fits all” approach.

We get to know your business and tailor our advice to support and safeguard your operation ensuring that you meet all the specific legal obligations relevant to your company.

We firmly believe that workers who believe they are valued contributors to the success of the business will give their employers loyalty, commitment and the very best of themselves.

Taking a holistic approach and investing in the development of your workers will reap rewards in terms of reduced sick absences and staff turnover, peak performance and optimum efficiency.

We look to support forward thinking employers in:

  • developing and delivering stimulating outcome-focused training programmes that:

  • achieve quantifiable improvements in attendance, performance and productivity

Our proactive investment training programme provides support to managers and HR providing them with the necessary skills for best practice and effective staff management.

At the same time, our wellbeing solutions programme delivers outcome focused coaching as part of performance management, absence management, communication and other work related issues where positive skills intervention can reduce long-term costs.

Robust Infrastructure

A lack of effective employee management can create havoc in an otherwise effective business venture.

Without a strong resilient infrastructure which include workable contracts and policies backed up by management training, the success of any organisation is at risk. One mistake could result in thousands of pounds in a settlement payment or even worse, costly tribunal litigation.

Documentation

Having robust contracts, procedures and policies make clear to everyone in the workplace what they should expect and what is expected of them. 

The initial investment makes for an impressive rate of return by way of optimum efficiency and productivity and a motivated and committed workforce.

As experts in our field, we aim to deliver our knowledge, experience, tools and processes fine tuned to your specific operation. We learn where the highest risk areas are and provide tailored made solutions to safeguard your business ensuring optimum risk management.

Protect Your Business

Our vast experience in helping employers manage internal issues includes devising safe exit strategies for employees where necessary.  

These include carefully drafted settlement agreements. We understand that businesses will have  specific commercial interests that needs protecting.

Unless confidential information and post-termination restrictions are carefully drafted with reference to the legitimate interests of the business, they may be unenforceable and simply not worth the paper they are written on. Our expertise also sees us negotiate directly with employee legal advisers on your behalf where they seek to redraft terms of the agreement.

Tribunals

We take disputes seriously.

We provide a strong defence team to deal with employee claims and take every measure to mitigate the risk of employers’ liability.

You will receive sound commercial pragmatic advice at all stages of the tribunal procedure with guidance on the prospects of success and alternative settlement solutions where appropriate.

We acknowledge that employers wish to avoid long drawn out tribunal hearings which only serve to take up valuable time and resources and you will receive prompt expert advice on the merits, value and prospects of any claim issued by an employee to enable informed decisions to be made.
