HR for small business is so valuable when you are at the start of your employer journey. Getting the fundamentals right first time can save you money and a lot of heartache.
Start Up support is about setting yourself up for success. When you start your business, you put the foundations in place to support the business success such as, business plan, premises, finances and so on. However, the foundations for your people are often forgotten – it’s crucial to ensure you are compliant with employment law as well as establishing your culture and employer brand.
You might be worried that you can’t afford HR support for your small business. Perhaps you’ve been struggling trying to figure out what systems and processes you need to put in place to enable you to take on your first members of staff.
And then there’s all the legal and compliance aspects of being an employer – what to pay, what benefits are your staff are entitled to, do you have to provide a pension scheme, what happens if there is a grievance or disciplinary matter and how to get support if you need to dismiss someone.
It’s enough to make you lose sleep.
But help is available, and it costs less than you think to get started.
Here’s how you can get the support you need:
This package gives you some initial advice on areas you need to be aware of when starting to create your team. You’ll get:
· A Ready to Grow booklet
· A Ready to Grow checklist
· A Ready to Grow planning document
If you feel you need bespoke help to set your HR strategy on a clear path to success, then why not take advantage of our Get Ready to Grow strategy call. This 90-minute 121 consultation will give you clarity on the areas that require your focus. You’ll leave the call with a clear plan on what you need to do to grow your team and next steps you need to take.
When you are ready to start hiring your first member(s) of staff, you’ll need to understand the recruitment process, employee contracts and have staff policies and procedures in place. By law, you must at a minimum have a grievance policy, a disciplinary policy and (if over 5 employees) a health and safety policy. You may wish to give further information to your employees via a staff handbook.
This package also includes:
· Recruitment pack
· Standard contract
· Employee Handbook which includes statutory policies
Inexpensive support to get you started.
Peace of mind that you are fulfilling your employer duties.
Manage the stresses of becoming an employer.
Checklists to ensure that nothing gets missed.
When you are too big to do everything yourself, but too small to need in-house HR, Solutions HR has you covered.
One of our recent clients said:
Sally is approachable, personable and professional, she is great at connecting people who can help each other. She recently gave an important presentation on recognising the employment status of your staff and yourself which was well received by all who attended. When I get to the point where I have staff, Sally will be on speed dial.
