This is what Martin Skillen, UK Director of Hi-Tech Coatings says about our on-going retained support service:-
“The benefits of using Horizon HR’s services are that we have set up professional, modern procedures and documents.
Internal conflict has reduced; team work is improving. HTCIL will be able to manage staff more effectively.”
We also offer an excellent low cost high value 24/7 Employee Support benefit £16.50 per employee per annum. Supporting Employee Wellbeing, employees can call the 24 hour telephone service for information, guidance and counselling (includes debt management, relationship counselling, legal and health information) or they can use the on-line service and access a huge variety of information sources to cover most aspects of their lives. Is someone needs ongoing face-to-face CBT counselling that’s not a problem either as they can access up to 6 face-to-face sessions with a local counsellor completely free!
Confused by ever-changing employment law?
Horizon HR provides business owners and senior managers with help in understanding employment law, the minimum legal requirements of employment and the latest employment contracts. Let us show you the way through the maze.
Bogged down with the constant demands of day-to-day HR issues?
Your staff will expect you to provide them with sick and maternity/paternity leave and pay etc. Make sure you understand your statutory duties as an employer, especially when it comes to potentially contentious issues such as knowing the basic Health & Safety requirements and ensuring you minimise potential harassment or discrimination. Get the latest help and support from Horizon HR.
Need help writing your employment contracts and ensuring they meet legal requirements?
A basic employment contract to establish the rules and employment terms is essential. You may think a contract is unnecessary as you have a very good relationship with employees, but when there is a dispute, it would be very hard to argue your case if nothing is written down. Horizon HR has helped 15 clients with new or updated contracts of employment.
Do you know how to recruit the best people?
It is essential to identify the ideal skills + attitudes for your vacancy and to have a basic framework for advertising, shortlisting and conducting effective (and lawful) interviews. Once on board, the new recruit’s induction period is most important. Horizon HR can help you with each stage so you find the right person for the job.
Better Working Relationships
Encouraging your employees to work together in a co-operative and harmonious way is obviously conducive to running a successful business, but we all know that this can be difficult to achieve sometimes. Most of us, at some point in our working lives, have experienced difficult or destructive working relationships. Get the latest advice and support to improve working relationships from Horizon HR.
Dreading that disciplinary or grievance meeting or dismissing an employee?
Nobody likes the trauma of having to discipline or dismiss staff, or resolve disputes and conflicts, but it is part of running a business. Horizon HR can lead you step by step through the processes and if needed, will write a simple disciplinary and grievance procedure before you have to use it!
Performance Management/Appraisal & Staff Development
Don’t know where to start with appraisal procedures or identifying appropriate training for your staff?
Appraisals or a formal meeting to assess performance and identify skill gaps will help you improve performance and identify development needs. It’s important to maintain high morale, motivation and continuous development, which allow your team to grow in skills and learning to help your business succeed. This is achieved through good management and structured, regular progress meetings with constructive feedback.
