All too often here at organic hr we speak to organisations who manage their own human resources without the luxury of a dedicated HR department. On the whole it can work out quite well for a time, but all too often a situation arises that tests the employment contract, policies or practices (if they exist!), and flaws inevitably appear that result in excessive time, effort and money being spent.
In our experience, the best time to introduce good terms and conditions of employment and a set of policies or staff handbook is when staff relationships are good, the time when many organisations feel the most confident that they’re just not necessary, and using external expertise (like us!) is a real investment. It needn’t be a big deal – the trick is good communication, and by ensuring that the polices or staff handbook are non-contractual, those areas that are likely to change the most can be with, guess what, more good communication.
We work with organisations of all shapes and sizes in areas around Yorkshire, from Brighouse to Bradford, Huddersfield to Hull and Doncaster to Dewsbury – based in Halifax we are ‘good to go’ with a train line and the M62 to hand.
So, pick up the phone and call us on 01422 399535 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange a confidential (no cost!) chat to see how we might be able to help you achieve peace of mind with your employment matters. We’ll buy the camomile tea!
