Managing all the pressures of running a business can be stressful, with all the various areas of legislation to understand and decisions to make. We understand that you set up a business/enterprise because you are an expert in your field or had a great idea, so you may not necessarily be an expert in HR or employment law and may need some help.
The decisions you make regarding employment affect the lives of your employees and impact your business, so it can seem daunting trying to work out what is best for both you and your employees. On top of this you need to make sure you are compliant with laws and best practice. Human resources for small business are important but tricky. Chances are you will not need a full time member of staff undertaking your HR, but you do need advice and assistance in areas such as employment contracts, even volunteers are covered under the law especially relating to Health and safety in the work place.
Taking on new staff can be a very positive experience if you get the right advice. We can assist and advice you to hire new people, keep your people motivated and stay on the right side of the law.

Health and Safety Advice
If you are managing a business/enterprise, you are ultimately responsible for the health and safety in all aspects of the business.
Responsibility for managing health and safety may be delegated to a competent person in the business, but primary responsibility still lies with the owner/management board or partners of a business.
The benefits of promoting a healthy workplace are for employers as well as employees; healthy and motivated workers are more likely to 'go that extra mile': give good customer service, take fewer sick days and provide commitment and creativity. As an employer you have a 'duty of care' to look after the health, safety and welfare of your employees/volunteers while they are at work. You must ensure that the business has access to suitable competent health and safety advice. We can provide all the required documents and information relating to Health and safety, and advice on licensing if required to keep your business within the Law.
