On-site HR support and assistance

HR can be tough and demanding. Whether your HR team has absences, or is just under a lot of pressure, People Care’s HR professionals can assist your company on-site.

Safeguard your business against unexpected issues involving your HR department.

Employee Appraisals

Appraisals and performance reviews can help your employees improve their organisational performance and quality of work.

A structured plan can aid employees in feeling recognised and valued by their employer, it also provides opportunity to discuss weakness and areas of developmental need, and come up with the appropriate solutions to these issues.

People Care can develop a framework, structure and process to suit the needs of your company.

We can provide assistance with face to face review meetings, and even attend these meetings required to help you get the best out of your employees. 

Review and Refinement of Company Policies and Procedures

People Care’s HR professionals can introduce policies and procedures that give your organisation consistent approaches to the management of your team.

With us, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach, all of our documentation is custom-written to suit your individual organisation.

Make sure your company is covered against legal claims and new legislation, as well as making sure your company is keeping up with the competition. 

Review and Refinement for Contracts of Employment

As soon as a job applicant unconditionally accepts your offer of employment, a contract of employment needs to come into existence. This should detail all the main employment particulars, as well as important policies and terms and conditions.

People Care can work to ensure this contract is created and refined professionally, as well as created in a format you can replicate and use in the future without hassle.

Advice on Employment Law

In the UK, employment law is constantly changing. New legislation is being introduced and updated regularly.

The consequences of failing to follow employment law can be costly and catastrophic to the reputation of a business. Only one tribunal needs to be claimed to cause long term damage to a business.

With regular advice and guidance, businesses can avoid such claims.

Whether it’s advice on discrimination, harassment, maternity leave or disciplinary action, People Care’s professionals are on stand-by to ensure your business is always compliant.

‘Health Checks’ on HR policies, processes and practices

People Care’s HR professionals constantly have their finger on the pulse of new business policies, regulations and guidelines.

Our consultants can review all of your HR policies and highlight areas that need attention, we can then look at updating policies and overseeing the implementation of these policies into your business.

Recruitment processes

We believe having the right people in your organisation is crucial to its long term success.

At People Care, we can:

  • Write and advertise your job vacancies
  • Manage applications
  • Screen your candidates
  • Hold initial interview stages
  • Arrange psychometric testing
  • Make offers and negotiate deals
  • Develop and issue contracts of employment
  • Arrange and manage inductions

All this, to save you time and money.

We hold your business’ core values, displaying a professional image of your organisation and making you increasingly attractive to potential candidates.

We also work to ensure your company doesn’t fall into potential recruitment pitfalls, such as discrimination, permits to work and data protection. 

Management of Redundancy processes

At People Care, we understand what a delicate process redundancy is.

We can help fulfil your business’ statutory requirements when making redundancies:

  • Planning
  • Procedure
  • The reviewal of alternatives
  • Collective employee consultations
  • Individual consultations
  • Dismissal notices
  • Appeals
  • Compliance with statutory minimums or enhanced pay

Management of Settlement Agreement process

Settlement agreements are one of the best protective procedures you can put in place to ensure there are no repercussions to your business when terminating an employment.

When an employee agrees to sign a settlement agreement, they are effectively also signing away their right to lodge a tribunal claim against your organisation.

These agreements are recognised by law meaning they are the safest way to terminate an employment.

People Care’s relationships with trusted solicitors ensure that the process can be managed and streamlined without any cause for concern. 

Techniques to combat Sickness and Absence

There are many reasons why employees take time off work.

These can include short and long term sickness, as well as unauthorised sickness (or ‘throwing a sickie’).

People Care’s professionals can advise and implement procedures within your business that minimise the likelihood of employees taking these unauthorised absences.
