HR Advice Clinic for Businesses – Online/telephone

This Human Resources clinic provides one-to-one advice and guidance for business owners on a wide range of HR matters, from employment contracts, people management and restructuring to recruitment, selection and training. Bookable one-hour appointments are available from 13:00 to 16:30.

Why book a place on this clinic?

You will receive free one-to-one advice for your business from an expert, a free HR health-check and have the chance to get your people-related questions answered.

People can be the greatest resource for a business, but it is important to put the right strategy and procedures in place. Is your business ready to grow? Do you have the right team in place? The ‘right’ team has great attendance and timekeeping as well as making a positive contribution to your company. Do you know how to select and recruit that team and ensure they are your business’s greatest asset?

Also, following the Supreme Court ruling in 2018, employees no longer have to pay a fee to bring a tribunal claim against their employers, so it is time to ensure you have the right policies and processes in place to avoid being one of those companies that experiences a claim.

What is covered?

These one-to-one sessions are designed to give you an opportunity to explore your current people strategy and compliance with employment legislation. Whether you need advice on developing your team to improve performance and productivity, need to discuss your recruitment strategy or process to help you attract the best talent, or assistance with restructuring your organisation to support your growth ambitions, we can help you explore the issues that you need to consider. You can also take advantage of a complimentary HR health check on your current contracts of employment and employee handbook to ensure that you are not only compliant with employee legislation but are implementing HR best practice.

How is the clinic delivered?

Your one-hour meeting with our expert will be delivered via online video conferencing (e.g. Microsoft Teams meeting) or telephone, so you don’t need to leave the house or office. You will be asked to choose your preferred option when booking.

HR Clinic Expert – Katie Aldridge

Employing people can be the most rewarding, or the most frustrating part of running a business and, for The HR Dept Newbury it’s our approach that really sets us apart. Instead of telling small businesses what they can’t do, we tell them what they can do to achieve the results that they want.

With 20 years of experience in various HR roles, Katie’s supported both small companies and global corporates in a career spanning a range of industries from not-for-profit,  education, through to financial and  pharmaceutical. Now working to support small business she can support you with:

  • Employment law
  • People management
  • Contracts of employment
  • Disciplinary and grievance
  • Performance management
  • Absence management
  • Redundancy management
  • TUPE transfers
  • Employee surveys
  • Training and development

In fact, any people-related activities that help a company to achieve its business objectives. With this in mind, we can work with you on anything from a one-off employee issue through to a business restructure. From providing an updated contract template through to designing and implementing a full suite of employment policies and documents. From ad-hoc support to a regular on-site presence. The HR Dept also has a range of value added services which give smaller businesses access to HR tools that used to belong only to larger businesses. If you’re located in or around the Newbury area and are looking for proactive, pragmatic and friendly HR support then get in touch with The HR Dept Newbury – we look forward to working with you!
