Recruitment is an essential yet time-consuming process, and in its initial stages, it may not always be an effective use of your
Let Russell HR take the lead in the recruitment process by working with you to create job roles and person specifications, adverts, applicant screening systems and candidate assessments. We can then present you with your top applicants for final interviews.
Your people matter. Once you have recruited the best, you need to make sure you keep them! Knowing what makes your people tick and how to motivate, recognise, and reward them in a way that works for them is crucial.
To improve employee engagement, you need to understand your starting point. A simple way of achieving this is through a staff survey.
We can help you work with your employees to understand how they are currently feeling within their roles and the organisation, and to put an action plan in place to maximise the engagement of your people.
Are you paying your people a fair wage? How do your benefits stack up with others in your industry? Do your people feel valued, fairly treated and recognised for the work they do?
We can work with you and your people to find out what they really think of their pay and benefits packages, and how recognised they feel within their role.
Having completed an audit of your current pay and benefits package, we can make recommendations within your budget, to maximise the benefit gained from well- motivated and rewarded employees.
Successful businesses change when required and there may come a time when your current structure is no longer fit for purpose.
We can work with you to understand your future aspirations, and then look at how to best structure your business to achieve these goals.
We can help to future proof your business in the best possible way, ensuring any changes you undertake are legal and made with both the best interests of the business and your people in mind.
Performance appraisals are one of many performance management tools that aim to ensure an employees’ performance contributes to business.
A badly designed and hastily introduced appraisal system operated by untrained and poorly motivated managers will damage relationships and provide no benefits.
We can help design and implement an appraisal system that suits your business and works for you and your people.
Sadly, despite all efforts to prevent such situations, employee disputes do arise. We are very experienced in handling such situations, not only legally but with empathy considering the emotional impact such situations have on all parties involved.
We can help ensure matters are resolved, where possible to the satisfaction of all parties, in an efficient and cost- effective way.
If you are experiencing or anticipate a disciplinary or grievance dispute arising, please get in touch and let us help you. This will either be in an advisory manner, or on site where we will oversee and manage the whole situation on your behalf.
We are also able to advise and/or manage potential redundancy situations, capability, and settlement agreements.
Do you know how much absence is costing your business? Not only in hours lost by those absent, but the negative impact absence can have on other team members if not managed effectively?
An affective absence management policy will promote engagement and attendance, and therefore help to reduce absence. Creating a positive working environment means employees are less likely to wake up and think “I don’t feel like going in today”.
It is also about supporting employees suffering with ill health to stay in or return to work.
We can help you put systems in place to monitor your staff absence, work with your people to improve attendance and support them pastorally when appropriate.
Job profiles create clarity for both employees and the employer on what is expected from each member of the team.
This not only enables people to know how they should be performing in their own role, but also allows insight into what other roles within the organisation may require.
Job profiles can also improve productivity by reducing repetitive elements within and between jobs.
When considering performance, a comprehensive job profile will offer a solid foundation for any appraisal system and will allow managers to easily identify those that are over or under performing.
We will work with you to create clear and comprehensive job profiles tailored to your business.
Documentation is necessary in any business environment, and making sure you have the correct paperwork, policies and procedures in place is key, not only for your employees, but it is also a legal requirement.
We can provide you with the necessary documentation for you to stay compliant, and show your people that you care about providing a good workplace for them to work and grow in.
Documents can be provided ad-hoc when needed such as employee contacts, staff handbook or template employee letters.
Alternatively, we can provide a small business package at a fixed price that will provide you with a standard set of employee documents that can be tailored to your business.
